Noisey Talks: Are One Direction Already Bigger Than The Beatles?

It's like Jeremy Kyle but about music.

This week on Noisey Talks, Spector's Fred Macpherson, the Telegraph writer Lucy Jones and the Quietus and Menk hero John Doran give us a schooling on pop culture history as they deify Simon Cowell as the new Andy Warhol and deem that One Direction's recent chart success means they're already bigger than The Beatles.

There's also some handy advice for any new British band looking to make it big in the US.

Watch it here or over at Noisey's YouTube channel.
