i dont think ive been this excited by a new band in about ten years.
given to me by a girl from Our Price in Eldon Square in Newcastle when she sold me a copy of 'Inescapable' by Cranes, that was the indiest metro journey home i ever had with that bloody display. Ahhhh..
cant wait to see them play at Newcastle Uni. If them cunts as SeeTickets pull their fingers out of their vaginas, that is.
tell her 'coconut' is THE greatest thing ive heard ever ever ever.
And as for selling out? I cant tell you how much your ghetto mentalities piss me off.
i actually really like the cover. Its bound to be one of their arty NY pals.
the song she did on the last Dirty Three record? 'great waves', its a beauty.
she's turned into late period Robert Palmer in my book. I loved the covers record but wasnt that fussed about 'jukebox' other than the new version of metal heart. You Are Free was the high watermark for me.
for ages now, and this wont be it. i actually really liked Lifeblood(!)
i just couldnt get into it, loved The Raincoats though.
,for once again i have been moved to tears by 'pink bullets' by The Shins.
theres gotta be better venues in That London that deerhunter could play.
this guy has the right idea, The Beatles used to release three albums a year or something crazy like that.
'woooooooooomannnnn you are a wooooooomannn you are a real wooooooomaaaaaaaan!!' and so forth.
Burial is going to win, he wont be there, he'll obviously either send a member of his family to collect it, or someone from some 24 hour cafe he frequents to collect it, you know, to give them a 'nice night out'.
did you realise you werent in Saint Etienne after all?
constantly from the ad in the back of the NME, they always had the coolest stuff you couldnt find in the megastores or whatever. When i got my copy of the first Godspeed you black emperor album in the post, there was a sticky label on the invoice that said 'this is something truly special, you will love it'.
A real shame.
on radio 1 played 'up with people' when i was driving back from the Pictures the other night, it was lovely.
they will give it either 9.9 or 6.4
i heard him try to justify invading the stage when he spat the dummy out cos he didnt win an award at MTV a couple of years back. he said something like 'its a terrible thing for me to be ignored in this way as (at award ceremonies) i feel so at home there'. What?!!
is an amazing song, its one of those happy-sad songs you would fuckin love to hear when you're painting your living room.
with the promise of 'new material' by MBV, face it, its never ever ever ever ever going to appear. never ever ever. ever.
that one of my radgie scottish cousins speaks. its a bit threatening 'your da' he's gowwwwnnnnnn'.
how does this fucker not get sued left right and centre? He's just a little bitch with a high-speed internet connection and a big mouth. Someone should remind him she's not long lost a baby as well.
Learn some compassion, prick.
best ever song titles aye
I Love You, I'm Going To Blow Up Your School’
Channel 4 when they were at the peak of their 'fame', they were total pricks to some poor girl who had won a competition to meet them after a gig. I wouldnt even have treated Hitler the way they treated that girl.
oooh!! i'll get me the Post one, the artwork and that on vinyl will be pretty lush i think
brother. i cant see The Pigeon Detectives doin anything similar.
or dollars or whatever is pretty fuckin good rates for someone who still hasnt broken into the mainstream!!
so its NOT laser Guided Melodies 2?
that Uncut CD this month, it was lovelier than expected
album coming out instead? still, good news. 'show your bones' is massively underrated
when they're round your house.
series is really lovely stuff
i hate that paper too, but their stories and editorials ARE so over the top that no one I know personally would take them seriously or be offended by them. its funnier than Viz.
she wont turn up
dont bother protesting about wars and thwarted earthquake relief efforts in communist countries, just march on the most obvious of right-wing tabloids because they dont 'understand' it because they 'dont like it' or whatever.
i thought the three other girls in the band were the Rest Of The Band
i couldnt bear the bum references in reviews if it isnt
the whole notion of 'selling out' has been totally turned on its head because of illegal downloads, bands have to do things like this (although it is a shame.
i cant think there are many bands making any money from music anymore. are all these hardcore people going to pay Sonic Youth's bills and school fees for their kids? no they fucking arent.
that Wind In The Wires song is great in a Bunnymen sort of way aye?
i seem to remember spotting him at a festival and he was dressed like a cross between Bo Brummel and a tellytubby and was rolling his eyes around at the obvious drabness of his surroundings, as they werent pretty enough for him.
they were ripping off Kraftwerk
tune is pretty fuckin Rad though
be a pop culture figure if all you get to do is take drugs and play with Mice. Still though, this is pretty macabre to watch for some reason.
i got the demos of the songs for 'Nobody's Daughter' off SLSK and theyre tremendous, and worthy of repeat listening. The moment has truly passed for this now, no label in their right mind would take her on now.
the dude sounds like the dude from Buffalo Tom.
fact that bloody Animal Collective are mentioned at least 36 times a day on DIS.
