Our Jase lives in my area now, I bump into him occasionally in the mornings on his way to the gym. It's a very middle class neighborhood, his street cred must have taken a bit of a dive...
I was just reading up on them...

Success has made Williamson less angry about not having any money, he admits. Now that he lives in middle-class West Bridgford in Nottingham, with his wife Claire and two children Flora, seven, and Beau, three, he’s been asking himself, “Have I become the person that I rail against?”

Flora and Beau FFS. What a faker. If it was just Flora I might have assumed he's named his daughter after his favourite brand of margerine, but Beau too, that's unforgivable. :D
think more to do with trying to appear cool but it's the kids that suffer :lol:

as for the class thing... i have never got this stereotyping ... or trying to come across as working class middle class... i find it all a bit out dated.

I get the appeal of the area because the schools are good and we have a nice mix of shops, bars, restaurants... A really nice park, all within easy walking distance. Quite how he marries this middle class living with the content he puts out who knows. Then again I don't follow his music at all so he could very well be ranting about matcha lattes and Boden now for all I know.

i don't know much about their music / lyrics either but i think they do comment on social issues. and i guess here is the debate... does someone have to continue to live in an area to understand what goes on ... can they not go on their life experience and continue to talk / song about those issues?

I don't think you have to have been to a war to know it is not good for your health... so yeah but maybe i can't understand the real horror on that subject but i can with the things i lived through in my life ...

you have many champagne socialists who continue to talk about the "working class" yet live in a different world... also have Graham Coxon for example singing about teen angst to this day.... any thoughts ?
