Peaches Geldof - Disappear Here Editor

Peaches Geldof - Disappear Here Editor

It’s no surprise that this particular story has got our goat at The Scribbler.

But most in the print media should be annoyed by the news famous for being nothing ‘indie it girl’ Peaches Geldof has been set the challenge of launching a magazine, whilst the MTV cameras follow the sordid charade (watch at your peril).

Peaches has described the magazine, Disappear Here, as “underground and anti-mainstream”, Sugar Ape anyone?

The program has been met with a lot of negative criticism, largely due to a daddy’s girl waltzing into an industry that many will spend years toiling in just to get a byline.

Another major criticism of the show has been Peaches highly unprofessional approach to others. Editor’s naturally have a degree of authority on a publication but let us not forget that Peaches’ only experience of writing was a poorly written column in The Daily Telegraph (How did she get that job? – Ed).

Put simply Peaches looks set to offend a lot more people with her new program (for as long as it runs). But at least we can take heart in all the little attacks on the show and its trumped up offensive protagonist.

One blogger put it best with this simple equation: Geldof + no clue + posse of idiots = turd sandwich.

Of course what’s even more disturbing is that Bloc Party‘s name has been tarnished by the show. Disappear Here is lifted from one of the Brighton band’s tracks.

To see the band talk about the track Song for Clay (Disappear Here), which is also named after the character in Bret Easton-Ellis’ Less Than Zero, glance below:

Yes the show aired on MTV One back in October but as it’s just been aired on Freeview friendly TMF we thought we’d run this little number.

Expect a full scale rant in the next few weeks as the fate of Disappear Here is revealed for our viewing pleasure.

Discussion:
Has anyone seen this hideous brand of broadcasting? Is anyone surprised Disappear Here is an MTV One production? What did you think of the show?
