Menswear are a 90’s Brit Pop band. Some may argue that history has been unkind to them. Others will say that they don’t deserve kindness, since they were essentially a manufactured guitar band with an emphasis on the ‘pop’ part of Brit Pop, arranged for the members good looks and rumour has it they were discovered in the menswear section of a shop.
They had one song though that many hold dear to their hearts, and that is ‘Being Brave’.
I am nostalgic for the 90’s. Despite the fact it had a lot of problems and I was no older than 10 by the end of the millennium.
I often use quotes from The Simpsons, or song lyrics as a way of saying what I want to say.
I often say the chorus line of the song Being Brave, which is ‘I don’t believe in being brave’.
Being brave is tough. And I am soft and malleable. I am pathetic and weak. I am incapable of strength.
The future is bleak. The future is black.
