TOLSATD are brill
Good to see them getting more coverage over here.
Los Camp! need to re-issue their Monster Tshirt, in blue, in large...
(well perhaps not "need", but I'd defo buy one)
Really looking forward to it!
but, what a great interview.
Burrows seems to be genuinely nice, and in it for all the right reasons.
I'm going to try and buy this.
Reading this put me in a really good mood!
his voice reminds me of D'Angelo and the music reminds me of Add N to X or something...
really like it
They're one of those "super-bands" to me. Kind of like Trail of dead or the russian guy they cant kill in snatch.
I always forget how brilliant they are until i listen to them or see them.
Whenever I've seen them play, they just cut through all the rubbish...
And their DJ sets are the best ever.
I just whacked Young Team on itunes and it's pretty superb. 'Yes I am a Long Way from Home' reminds me of the Chemical brothers for whatever reason...
but less heartbraking.
5Anyone Can Play Guitar
9Pop Is Dead
11 How Can You Be Sure?
12 True Love Waits (dunno if they have rights to a decent version), if not Palo Alto or Sulk maybe
13Everything In It's Right Place
14A Wolf At the Door
15Life In A Glasshouse
but I bet a Tori concert there will have attracted a lot of mid-late thirties types keen for the social occasion...
I dunno if she's better off waiting until the end of song to politely ask them to sit down before chucking them though...
"Serve the Goblins" is amazing
I do something fairly similar here:
I got in there first
all points above noted, but it's billy Corgan playing Pumpkins songs, which I've never seen due to not being into them at the time.
on the same bill as Ghostface and Snoop, they were amazing.
They truly are the Nu Metal Coldplay, a bit wallpaper, but quite charismatic and surprisingly likable live.
comes accross as a bit of a cock, but not quite enough to elevate him above the nondescript. A shame as it appears a bit forced.
Dunno what their music's like tho...
When I went in the sheffield one last week I was pleasantly surprised though...
Maybe I'm just getting old
And might go down the Digital Hardcore route. It'd be like a soul Patrick Wolf hopefully...
I like the Go! Team's debut a LOT, but as said above, what a twattish attitude. Should have played it down.
I dont really care for Craig David's music that much, but he always seems sound in interviews.

bands like these are the reason the enemee(magazine rather than example of said type of band...) always come back begging Oasis for copy. And bands like this tend to say they like Oasis, (and avoid slating anyone established who can use big words or rant well), because they know the Gallaghers would rip them to shreds in a verbal battle.
is that the blokes achievements are obvious and the defining thing about him.
a lot of bands/music wouldnt sound quite the same if he hadnt bothered with music.
Invisible Invasion has some good moments too
Would like to get 'Nightfreak ' at some point
A good band.
the thing that really affects the good record shops (for example, off the record in sheffield, which is brilliant, and a 45 minute journey from my work, but i havnt been for over a year), is the second hand marketplace on amazon. I can order practically anything, with all the browsing capability i want, for a price which is generally cheaper or comparable.
That said, if I lived near OTR (its at least a two and a half hour experience going, factoring in travel, a lot of browsing, other shops around it and misc), I'd practically live in it.
Emusic is the best thing to happen to happen to me this year music retail wise.
Lets all chase him with a scythe so I can take it back
looks like Paul Weller but made out of rubber, and sounds like a cardboard cutout of a twat.
Half the"working class" jobs he talks of are now the preserve of students and middle class who dont care.
He wants drowning in a vat of marshmallows.
cant fault them really
a large percentage of "indie" students would have gone to crasher had they been around eight years older.
so how is the building today?
going past this at 520 this evening. Quite a few bellends wandering round with camera phones. I presumed it was the matilda centre burning, which despite the crusts, was ace as a C90 venue.
Never been to Gatecrasher...felt I should have when it was still a big deal...not too fussed now.
Obviously its a bad thing because fire and property(especially when around living things), are bad
didnt go for a ticket this year (attempting to learn how to drive...& went for connect due to coinciding with a mate, having bjork jamc confirmed), but I'd be dead happy with that lineup
the other stage, new park stage and dance tents all have some ace stuff on, and the Goldfrapp/national youth orchestra has to be mental.
there does seem to be a trend of awarding/putting on incongruously meat and potatoes bands wherever a stage or prize is named after peel... Others "innovation award" and Twang headlining... strange
I'll have a listen and try and find the red house
hope he doesnt clash with anyone
is a brilliant title
Is excellent, once you get past the pantomime veneer
'Empty Cans' is stunning imho.
pretty cool hexagonal(?) head with a button in the middle, and he could turn into a space gun.
Though he may have had a few deep seated personal problems the more i think about it...
I decided to buy a music mag in Spar today. I opted for mixmag over nme. I'm so pleased I did. Mixmag is at least funny in its full of shitness, and seems to have a photo from the Sainsbury's where I used to werk
while he may have a varied level of quality, his best words are spellbinding. I can see JDT's angle in that a lot of his stuff isnt very specific, but my god, the ether...
.all of Disintegration.
(too many brahmas for me.)
Matt said something similar to this four or five years ago, (in NME, before Origin (which makes me think it was 01), with the cover of him with blue hair looking a bit manga sid viscious), he basically said it was a conspiracy theory, before explaining that there was an extra planet, who came down and cloned us to be a fraction of themselves (intelligence and size wise?), and that all of this was somehow instigating global unrest a la 9/11. He was quite keen to point out that he'd been reading up on the subject.
At least he's got interests
For the record, IMHO, there is no conspiracy, just a lack of US Federal govt resources devoted to a n issue which hadnt quite forced itself into the public consciousness yet. That doesnt stop the Bushes, Bin Ladens, Saudi Royals and others from being similar people in similar circles
particularly when on his travels
esp the Jay D mix
but nothing on the other two in DC
especially miss Rowland
by Powderfinger is an absolute masterpiece,
This does sound a bit closer to Daniel Powter maims the Beatles though
...i'll probably like it
listened to it several times,
definitely an interesting band
circa 2002-3 were one of the best bands I've ever seen, never caught them after that due to busyness and locational difference. HAve to say I prefereed the demos to the stuff on Into the Nightlife, but completely understand the intent behind it, and Cambridge girl is ace
They should, by rights, have become Crowded House (an ultra commercial band with actual good tunes and likableness when your not posing)
I'm sure the re-issues of Bury St Eds bands in 2013-18 will get praised to the ground
havent heard anything they've done since In Our Gun, but, nothing against em, were dead good live the twice I saw em (missed Elliot Smith at Leeds 2000 to see them, dont particularly regret it, as they were as ace as he probably would have been, and my 16 y o self was familiar with Gomez)
at the mandela building and Glasto in 03,
Forever Changes is tops
and 7 & 7 is rules
used to be obsessed with the bloke circa age 16-19, but dont find myself listening to him much in the last 3-4 yrs, a few too many octaves, and hyped in a tasteless way through no fault of his own.
but defo a good talent. As I said beofre, reckon Sketches owns grace
defo looks like a certain holland striker though
Van Nistolroy to play buckley.
I think the first disc of sketches is the best thing he releases, and one of the best in the 90s, could have been a human counterpart to OK Comp.
a grave spins
Aki Nawaz just found his backing band
put these two stories together and there's proof that a shit is a shit regardless of cosmetic differences
Anyone heard seven sleepers den by Richard James? I havn't at all but have an inkling i'll love it, partly due to the title and shared name with mr Aphex, but mainly beacuse it sounds like the kind of record I'd expect to be half in 67 and a quarter in 98.
I remember seeing Gorky's at Leeds Festival sometime between 1999-2000. I wasnt ready for em at the time but still enjoyed it enough to stop talking
