Every artist has a selling point, from Pete Doherty (smackhead) to 50 Cent (bullet-proof) and even Train (blandness). What separates them from the William Hung’s of this world is that their shtick does not outweigh their abilities as artists. Melbourne’s Rudely Interrupted, a band whose members suffer from a range of intellectual disabilities, play a brand of Killers-esque pop is so catchy that you quickly leave your preconceptions at the door. You may also start to question your own potential in life.
