Busted: A Present For Everyone
Nick Southall, Stylus, 15 January 2004
IT IS, OF COURSE, the awkward-looking blonde one who is the genius behind Busted. And rest assured that I don't use the word "genius" lightly. Busted may appear to be nothing more than light-as-a-feather bubblegum teen punk-pop, but their simple formula of buzzing geetars, shouty choruses and peculiarly British adolescent irreverence (Blink 182 run through the streets naked, so what? Busted dress-up as old women and spank each other at fake weddings — I mean wtf?!) has made them very rich men before they're even old enough to shave properly or drive themselves to gigs.
