The Enemy's enemy is a straw man

The Enemy are quite self-assured for a band whose profile depends as much on one of them being linked to Peaches Geldof as any music they might have made, aren't they?

Today, they give Paul Potts a kicking for, erm, selling more records than them:

"I've just heard that we are about to be knocked off Number One by that fat bloke from Britain's Got Talent," Tom told [Zoe Showbiz]. "It's a fucking disgrace.

"Nobody will know who this bloke is this time next year. If he thinks he is going be making music in a year's time then he has another think coming.

"People who win talent shows have a habit of disappearing. They make one hit album, do a wave of promotion - and then it's on to the next big thing."

Yes, that's true, Tom. He might be a bit of national joke. But he is still selling more records than you, isn't he? And while people who win talent shows do have a bit of habit of getting some attention and then disappearing... you could say the same about bands-mainly-famous-for-hanging-out-with-Peaches-Geldof.

Tom Clarke may be a dark horse for most stupidly quotable frontman of 2007. Quoted on http://www.drownedinsound.com/articles/2195623: "Bands like Arctic Monkeys are great, especially their first album, but their songs are all about the weekend. Ours are more about the working man. I think having working-class roots does mean better songs as they are songs the majority can relate to."

Tom Clarke is a fan of public school educated diplomat's son Joe Strummer.

I'll give The Enemy their due. They've had three fantastic singles. It's a shame the well ran dry the minute they sat down to right the album.

Heard about Tom Clarke, enemy, won't give him anything, that's while e in enemy is lower case, just like clarke, low-class low-life. Making fun of Paul Potts, is like calling the kettle black. Hey tom, have u looked at yourself in the mirror lately, your nose is so big, your face so ugly, and u are making fun of Paul. It just shows that u are still at 19 years old, and immature p---k. Do u have the smarts to figure that word. I doubt it. I hope your jealousy over Paul keeps u up at night and no doubt u use drugs, just to be your nasty self. I live in the United States, and just goes to show u how much Paul is loved. Hope your band doesn't sell anymore CD's. May u rot with your big nose and ugly face in an anthill, where u belong.
