arctic monkeys were alright just now. the lead singer looks knackered though.
im looking forward to mylo next.
no one on tonight's show that interests me. I might go to bed actually.
he always says things like - we should go and see him live some time ally. I just ignore him. my flatmate last year has his album with tom jones. luckily he graduated in the summer and went back home.
telling my housemate that it'd be worth forming a succesfull band just so that when we played Later.. I could stab Joools in the neck.
singer of the artic monkeys plays his guitar at nipple height, thats another reason to dislike them.
Let me just sharpen my screwdriver.
I really don't understand the fuss around Arrrrtick Monkeys. Someone should buy them some facial-wash though.
a bottle of bleach would do.
well, he could have it on the floor or on top of his head. maybe he could have it on the floor and play it with a brick and electric fan, or that to avant guarde? i'd always been taught that it was what came out of the guitar that mattered...
playing 2nd rate Libertines dross I wouldn't care so much.
Krist Novoselic, thats how to hold a guitar, well bass.
Albert Hammond Jr does it, and he's definately the coolest Stroke.
But does anyone else find it really funny? Its the same each time:
2 Pretty popular indie(ish) bands
1 Famous pop person
1 Awfully strange Avante Garde man who plays his leg or something
And a soul singer or blues pianist
Jools presents you with a small target therfore..I like him although he is never negative about anything.
I thought that the audianve behind Ms Dynamite e hee were great they looked sooo bored, a blonde girl leik, so had to stifle a yawn and fiddled with her jewellrey throughout his interviewing the aformentioned has been.
I thought that the Artic monkeys were funny and it is brave that the two vocalists are the one with the most spots
I was in a posh restaurant in London a while back for my brothers 21st. There was a pianist playing some classical something or other by the bar, which was nice
And then Jools Holland walked in. He and the (fairly young) pianist made eye contact, Jools smiled a sort of awkward smile, and the pianist looked the most scared I've ever seen anybody look
After that, I couldn't help but notice the beads of sweat trickling down his face for the rest of the evening. Maybe he was nervous? Or maybe he was scared by Jools' lack of neck?
saw the blonde fiddling with her necklace.
It was because she was coming out with loads of cliches... 'music is my life' etc...
that sigur ros are on next week ?
is this truth or lies ?
but they're on in two weeks. next week is vashti bunyan, maximo park and *shudders* robbie williams.
I hope Paul Smith takes a novel with him.
paul smith brings a lion with him. and it turns on him.
last night was beyond dire. jools is going senile, i swear to god. why on earth was there an interview with lynn truss? it seemed like a completely pointless exercise to just show a clip of the sex pistols and have everybody applaud.
joseph arthur was dull and derivative, i wanted to ram his sampling pedals down his throat. ms dynamite, DULL. token indian/spanish/etc band, DULL.
arctic monkeys turned out to be the only vaguely entertaining thing on all night. that's saying something.
I only heard bit and bobs but Mylo sounded like lift music unsuprisingly Artic Monkeys had no energy, the others were pretty dull instead I watched bodies on this new teleport thing from telewest it's very clever you know.
Was utterly utterly dreadful. I don't think I've ever heard anything worse than some of the lyrics to her middle song.
And why the fuck did she get three songs? How's she doing for sales? Shite because she is completely talentless and the public's cottoned on to the fact that she is only played because she is: black, a woman and writes politically.
I really hate her so very much...
People might get the impression that you're a bigoted misogynist.
always nice to read the mature views of the DiS crew.
you know rapscalion, a lot of indie bands only get played because *shock horror* theyre white and have fucking stupid hair cuts. and when i say a alot, i mean most.
Not entirely sure how my view's are immature though.
I merely think Miss Dynamite gets overplayed by the likes of the BBC etc, because they feel that she connects with the "Yoof" whilst being embarrissingly, over-earnestly politically correct. In a way, i suppose the other aspects of my moan could be a little ill-judged, but i think that this central sentiment is perfectly valid.
comment was actually related to the wish for ms dynamite to be stabbed in the neck. shouldve made that clear. bur to single out ms dynamite as a key example of the music industry's cynicism is unfair, and a little bit futlile. although her music is admittedly shit, you've made quite a leap to come to those conclustions.
said anything bout stabbing her. and singling her out was solely the result of the amount of sycophancy offered her by Jools Holland. And i'd suggest she's more an example of media cynicism than music industry cynicism.
Jools Holland. He's cuddly.
