What are yours??
Is ummm what IÂ´m listening to right now I guess, MorrisseyÂ´s beautifully written, delightfully barbed and darkly bitter "You Are The Quarry". HeÂ´s right - the world IS full of crashing bores. I bloody love Morrissey for ripping into the policemen, policemen, silly little taxmen and pop-stars pop-stars thicker than pig shit. He says it so well. HeÂ´s really not just full of bile though, you know? ThereÂ´s more to it than that. ItÂ´s like this almost noble balance between a scathing eye cast over everything, and this boredom and despair, but also an eye for beauty and good things and pleasure.
Words aren't much cop, either.
What is Morrissey good at again?
and cashing in on past succeses?
playing up to his own cult?
but as a whole package, I'm hooked.
And as for Sean's criticisms, I disagree. He's just making albums and having a go at everyone, like he always did. If carrying on your own career is cashing in... then um what isn't?
Beautiful seizure. Amazing!
thatÂ´s why all the letters are coming out weird. ItÂ´s laid out differently.

I Know You Are But What Am I?

Didn't grab me at first listen. I will have to have another try soon.
Lords - This Ain't A Hate Thing, It's A Love Thing is getting me all wet at the moment, it's awesome.

words can not describe the emotions this soaring funk masterpiece gives me.
I have just had the pleasure of taking in the Arctic Monkeys album. I think one of my favourite part of listening was realising that the lyrics aren't the most poignant, funny and acurate barometer of modern British life - they just sound like it next to the Kaiser Chiefs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the complete lack of groove coming from any part of the band.
I also enjoyed having every song not only sounding similar (which is excusable) but following the exact same template (which is not).
But I think the best part was the bit at the end which made me think of a band who are a lot like every print journalist in the country has persuaded themselves the Monkeys are: Million Dead.
The lyrics of Million Dead songs are funny, poignant and intelligent - unlike Arctic Monkeys, and their musical style combines a lo-fi production with a degree of technical competence - unlike the Arctic Monkeys.
However, Million Dead have broken up and their last record was ages ago, so my actual record of the moment would be the two Battles EPs that came out a little while back.

hooray for frantz and weymouth.
guillemots - from the cliff e.p. is sooo good.
it's the sex.
it's an absolute classic and that may just be OPINION but i BELIEVE IN IT WHOLEHEARTEDLY.
also, Spank Rock.
and the entire Royal Trux back catalogue, but that's well old.
Thanks for reminding me about that. Knew those Virgin vouchers would come in handy...
my favourite song is the one about how beating kids is good.
ghostface never sells records because his lyrics are a bit too odd for the general public.
he had a really sickly R&B song 2 albums ago that was horrible musically and had Jagged Edge or someone on it purely because the label wanted money, but then he went and said "bitch, i had you sniffin' my boxers" and radio didn't play it.
i love ghostface.
look at the size of his chain!
he is hard as fuck though, he's built up this web of intrigue around himself over possible CRIMES by saying vague things in interviews and on record.
ie. "5 rappers got stuck that night, yo thanks for the ice"
no one else gets away with quoting themself either.
and he once cried on record and didn't look ghey.
THEY SHOULD COLLABORATE.
made me LOL
Tool single, Vicarious, has just been played for the 10th time today in my house. It's, just, brilliant.
the new albums by spank rock and the fiery furnaces! and i am very excited about the imminent new dresden dolls cd.
Welcome To The Monkeyhouse. It got relegated to the bottom of my collection cos I wasn't overly impressed with it. But I stuck it on in a moment of compressed madness, and it's like the Killers only not shit.
but I'm listening to 13 tales from urban bohemia. the first two tracks are possibly the strongest openers I ever heard.
also had source tags & codes by and you will know us by the trail of the dead.
that album is criminally underrated.
want that Rumah Sakit album, I have that sorta split live album he did with the WONDERFUL Sweep The Leg Johnny, I miss them...they had the best song titles i.e. 'Sometimes My Balls Feel Like Tits'
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - Etiquette
but it's the Bttls EP for me, it's a bit good innit. Or perhaps the This Heat compilation box set thing.
and Deathset - To
Gravity's Rainbow. Like Hot Chip covering "its the new thing" by The Fall. Nelson Mandela made it Single of the Week in the Cape Town Metro......
wolf in sheep's cloths

Their record is brilliant.
I heard The Nocturnal House which wowed me, but the other tracks I've heard weren't as immediate. Is it anything on the new romance?
