I thought Alan McGee had completely lost his shit and signed 359 artists to his record label. Bit disappointed now.
just then, remembering that he existed. holy shit: MISHKA
Mishka could have been the face of white-man-with-dreadlocks-reggae until Newton Faulkner came along and stole the crown.
If I recall, I think Mishka was actually related to McGee in some way.
you better fucking check your facts before accusing me of buying a cassette tape single of "Give You All The Love I've Got" in 1999 from Borehamwood Woolworths, before playing it in my red E Reg Sierra. REALLY don't appreciate baseless conjecture of that sort, man. Just saying.
CHRIST that Mishka song was dreadful... everything about it sounded stoned, it even seems to trail off into blissful incoherence halfway through before remembering it was a song.
My brother in law makes Newton Faulkner's guitars.
tweet McGee to say that Mishka has another album in him.
I don't even know who Mishka is but I like the idea of McGee blocking everyone
But I can't believe that Alan McGee has a sense of humour, let alone one good enough to pull that off.
the photo of the guy on the steps
given he was single-handedly responsible for giving the world 'Loveless' - aka the go-to album for stage two bedwetting plebs.
Loveless is boring anyway
given the amount of time he spends slating MBV as the worst thing he ever got involved with.
Who gives a toss about the price of a chomp going up. I can write a song in my garage for nothing, put it on the internet and get half a million hits on it, knowing if that translated into sales I would be no. 1 in America and the UK. Trust me, that makes a 20p chomp taste like a 10p one.
I was on the dole 3 months ago so life is great now. I got to go in and do that belter thing everyone wants to do, tell her”I’m signing off, I’ve got a record deal, see you later”. The woman was sound though so it was an anti-climax really. If it goes tits up I’ll just go to another job centre so it’s all covered anyway. I won’t look like a knob.
he definitely won't look like a knob, not at all
this guy sounds like a fucking legend.
the fact that he's got you all so irked's great.
it's been quite a furious week for me really
With Ocean Colour Scene and Bonehead already fans of his work
I see life as three parts and I think I write around this area. Sometimes life is great, sometimes it’s alright and sometimes it’s shit. At the end of the day it’s never a bad thing to enjoy the great moments as they might not last too long y’know…I think we get this as we get older and wiser if we are lucky enough to have an open minded experience and opinion.
It just so happens Oasis were doing good stuff at the time so they were on peoples lips. Unfortunately I am really good at it, probably better than Noel at his own tunes, still to this day because of it.
1 - isn't the old fart meant to be retired ? http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/news/20081029_alan_mcgee.shtml
2 - odd choice of name considering he went out of his way to grumble at me, and I went with CCCLX (360 in Roman numerals)
3 - BIG MAN RECORDS woulda been a much better label name. All caps, obvs.
when i realised that the article wasn't written by jon robb himself. bit worried that the writer's, like, 17
no need to get so sneery guys.
but the bits that aren't do read like they were put together by the work experience kid.
