a man in my office just told a 10 minute story about recommending that alice nutter buy some lychees and some grapefruit from his dads market stall, and she was so impressed that she gave him tickets to go see the chumbs at the dublin castle. apparently alice nutter started telling all her indie pals about the excellence of the fruit and then he made friends with Carter USM and got to sing Only Living Boy on stage with them once.
various reactions from young staff members:
"But they only had one song!"
"Carter the what?"
"I liked the Bluetones once, they had a good song"
"That Twang band are quite good though aren't they?"
"I love that new Kooks song, the one about being Naive"
Oh Bam bam why can't you work here?
