Great album. Hope he gets well soon.
Or am I just hallucinating wildly?
But I bet this gets more entries than the last two comps combined.
Just loaded with good stuff. Kutmasta Kurt... Nice.
is someone I have a completely irrational hatred for.
I'm not alone in this, I'm sure.
secret dancefloor dynamite.
Especially if you want to see 'The Spastic Preacher' performed in its natural environment.
Going to have to sort that one out.
The riff to the title track, absolute classic.
I love the cover.
It seems a shame to waste a bullet.
Time for a decent Marc Bolan biopic, I think.
Everyone has different reasons for doing things, and if you can justify it to yourself, what anyone else says doesn't really mean shit.
If Pink Floyd reform, I'll be doing the same.
was really great until Bobby Gillespie smacked my brother around the head with a mike stand.
Five stitches, four hours in casualty. Tons of fun for me, but worse for him.
But the only way they'll beat the touts and demand for those tickets is by playing a lot more shows and selling the majority at the venue on the day of the event, with names put on the tickets to stop transfer.
Card restrictions don't work very well. the Glastonbury festival uses the same system, and it doesn't seem to do much to stop touts.
That'll fucking do!!!
working with Bowie on something?
Very clever. Very... modern.
That record should have come out two years ago! I thought it'd just got forgotten about.
I'll buy a pair of tickets for it though. God knows what the baby boomers will pay for those little babies...
The Cure will do Reading this year.
If they don't do any Curiosa style gigs, it should tie in nicely.
I'm going to have to dig out 'Live at Cold Rice' now.
Great, great record.
That G'n'R album sounds like it should have been released six years ago, that the high notes are only hit by autotuning the shit out of Axl's now utterly fucked vocal chords.
I'll put an acca on the tour being a Spinal Tap in the 21st century disaster, too.
have just won the highly coveted 'best band name' title. And their records are alright as well.
The man... He got me!
1. Spoon - Gimme Fiction
2. Bright Eyes - Digital Ash
3. The Constantines - Tournament of hearts
Still don't see how Art Brut can fit in the top ten (it made the Pitchfork one too). Top live band with a couple of great tunes, but there's a lot of filler on there.
I thought they'd ceased to be.
Playing Margate, too. Might go down to that.
is superb. Great chiming guitars, lyrics with a predictable tang of sado-masochism. I think you can download it from their website, too.
I have a near-mint 1975 Gary Glitter annual.
Best page is page four 'Gary talks to the fans'. He's surrounded by kids. It's so wrong.
Just now I was thinking 'Wouldn't it be good if Myspace did comps?'
They're always just one step ahead.
in thinking they've gone off the boil.
Sonic Nurse may be my least favourite album of all time, especially when you remember what they're capable of.
It's a shocking effort, and no mistake.
It hurts to say it, but sometimes Great bands really can go Bad. I'll cross fingers that the next one is good, but I really don't hold out much hope.
