i hear this is the name of that alex turner side project thingy.
what's with him and shit band names?
it might be rilly rilly good, or it might just be quite good-ish as per the rest of his stuff
better name than the Arctic Monkeys though
i'm interested to hear it, because it does sound like it could cover a lot more ground than arctic monkeys ever could. i would lol a lot if he did scott walker circa 'tilt'/'the drift' etc.
i also wonder what he'll be like lyrically. i doubt he'll be singing about nightclub queues to a david axelrod-esque backing...
I'M THE ONLY ONE LEFT ALIVEEE
it would be beyond lolsome if he tried to mine the Tilt/Drift territory. Jo Whiley trying to play and explain minimal discordant songs about Chechnya would warm the cockles of my heart
However, i have a feeling that it's not going to be completely boundary pushing. Maybe some swooning strings and groovy drums, but with similiarly down to earth man-ont-street lyrics over the top of it (i doubt he'll be leaving that lyrical style behind). So probably not anything to hold your breath about
i guess you're right. the lad-rock set would probably implode if they thought he was trying to be clever.
there was me pondering if he had suddenly discovered swans, that his cohort in this project would be deploying some jarboe-type screaming, and if they'd be playing so loud as to make concert-goers vomit.
