A charming man betrays friends in the name of celebrity. Love blooms by the cemetery gates. A sour rain falls on the new young Queen divine. Shoplifters of the world unite in order to tug a reluctant aardvark out of a hole. A sweet and tender hooligan swings a three-bar fire like it was a demolition ball. The middle classes rush and push to rid the world of chavs. The death of a Miami disco dancer inspires a new TV show. A naked birthday rendition of "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" is seen across the globe. Cranked up trannies tout their trade as long as there is light. This is what happens when you Paint a Vulgar Picture. Contributors include: Mike Gayle, Kate Pullinger, Catherine O'Flynn, Helen Walsh, Mil Millington, Alison MacLeod, Matt Beaumont, Scarlett Thomas and Jeff Noon.… (more)

Almost entirely shit. Ask, Shoplifters Of the World Unite, and Cemetry Gates are the stand-outs. Everything else is mediocre to terrible. Most notably, Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others by Jenn Ashworth which is inexcusable. Imaging hating fat people so much that you 1) purposely choose this song just so you can write about how much you hate them and 2) live out your fantasy of setting a fat woman on fire while she sleeps.

On the plus side, I've now found an artist more intolerable than Morrissey himself. ( )
