After sorting their audience into pop clichés (I’m a Razorlight. I don’t want to talk about it), the pair took us through the 11 stages of Madonna. This taught us the value of nicking, or to put it more elegantly in the words of Oscar Wilde, “talent imitates, genius steals” and there is no other explanation for Madonna’s career longevity.
There was also a demonstration to show how easy it was to transform any genre of song into Grime (it’s pronounced ‘graaaam’). And Frisky & Mannish mean ANY genre, ANY song. Even The Carpenters’ Top of the World. Yeah, you’re intrigued now.
In addition F&M took us through the perils of lip-synching and picked apart the lyrics of Katy Perry. Armed with this knowledge the audience felt able to put together their own boy band. As we had already been divided into pop clichés (I don’t want to talk about it) the discovery of 5 men of complimentary pop type were assembled quicker than you could say Louis Walsh. I look forward to Hob Knobs’ debut single.
So thank you, Frisky and Mannish, I am now able to utilise my skills and optimise my flexibility to take me forward in the world of pop.
