Good work to whoever it was who started Who Is Arcade Fire, a collection of blinking tweets and puzzled Facebook statuses from people whose logic runs:
- I have not heard of the Arcade Fire (or the R K Fire, or The Suburbs)
- My music knowledge is unimpeachable
- Therefore, the Arcade Fire should not have won a Grammy.
Album of the year goes to Arcadia Fire. WTF are they?Slightly undermining these people's self-belief that there's no way they could have possibly have heard of this band is the awkward fact that The Suburbs was number one in the US last summer. Admittedly, the album before that only got to number two. I mean, how are you supposed to have heard of bands if they've only had number one albums?
