has a song called 'how say' which is good.
he is from brighton.
i played with him once and he was friendly, but scared of being knifed.
he's a southern jessie.
on the other thread? :)
er, in an attempt to be helpful.. the noisettes were handpicked by muse to support them on their UK arena tour last year. maybe ask them what that was like for such a new band? OR SOMETHING.
Something I can use.
home-produced overnight sensation 'the new mylo' - uses cheap little keyboards to make nicely offbeat shiny not-quite dance music.
biggest hit: 'you could easily have me'
album title: 'pip paine (pay back the £5000 you owe)'
ask who pip paine was and who could easily have him? whether in a sexual or fighting way.
who was discarded just before they got signed was, ironically, called Pete Best
they've supported interesting people so ask about that.
think of something worthwhile and interesting to ask about racism and sexism in indie rock.
well in most of the press stuff that i've read about them the singer gets singled out and described as unique blah blah blah. but i'm not too sure she is unique beyond the obvious minority aspects. she's good, but not unique.
also, when i saw them she seemed to be very keen to play to a certain level of african heritage through costumes masks etc, that was missing from the music.
so, does she encounter racism? or has she used it to mark herself very conciously as different.
or something, it's hard to phrase it in a way that can't be misconstrued.
That Noisettes tune is named after Sister Rosetta Tharpe, arguably one of the first women in rock n roll -- came out of gospel and was a big influence on Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Isaac Hayes and Keith Richards. She was Johnny Cash's favourite singer according to his daughter.
The woman in action linky:
your piss will turn green. This is because your body can safely expel an excess of B vitamins in your urine. Even if you're in Metronomy, Video Nasties or Noisettes.
is famous mainly for his remixes. his like show involves him and two friends playing keys and melodicas and banging plastic lights on their chests.
the noisettes are fucking incredible, but you wont like them cos youre s stupid willy muncher
the singer is awesome and dresses us and struts around like a mental and sings well well
trick or treat was originally an r and b song that he made for a project when he was doing a music tech course or something. it was kind of a happy accident how it came out the way it did - i kind of forget the story - but ask about happy accidents in making music or something - he will say something interesting about one of his songs
for trick or treat features my girlfriend dancing in a badger mask.
joe from metronomy once said he liked my band. he may have been lying.
by Metronomy was/is used on the Channel Five football coverage. And this goes back at least a year to my knowledge. Maybe an interesting tangent on the importance/necessity of emerging artists getting their music out there by whatever means possible?
He has remixed Gorillaz, Sebastian Tellier, Roots Manuva, Klaxons, Magnet, Dead Disco, The Infadels, Max Sedgely and Architecture in Helsinki. Probably even a few more
I missed his set at Bestival last year because my mate wanted us to go and meet his Dad for a pub lunch. Which seems fair enough, but it still grates to this day
"So which strand of their cornucopia of psychedelic mental ness best sums up The Noisettes? That the drummer spent three solid years of his teendom locked in his room playing drums eleven hours a day and never, ever going out? That the guitarist had his own personal school bully and only started playing guitar to impress Jimmy Page? That the singer trained for the circus and once choreographed a burlesque routine in which a woman laid a golden egg out of her vagina? Actually, those will come later: If one thing is to sum up The Noisettes’ anti-conformity, multi-stylistic freakoid upturning of popular music culture* it is that they were formed while trying to sabotage the first ever gig by The Feeling."
(* Good fucking god, what is that statement?)
