It's nothing like my own (in fact, I've only heard one of the top 10) but I really want to hear some of these records now.
I haven't listened to the Manics much in the past few years. I really want to now. SO I WILL.
That 'On and Ever Onward' song sounded great when they played it at that live thing.
This is going to be at least two kinds of awesome.
This band really excites me, but I've only heard like two or three of their songs, because I am LAZY.
Seeing them on Wednesday though. I am stoked. (My mum saw them supporting Keane. My mum has out-cooled me. )
I am mighty impressed with them.
lots. Now I'm just adrift and moorless on the internet. There are few reference points.
I think I'm going to start re-reading all the back issues. There must be a lot of stuff I missed or have since forgotten.
Thanks again, Plan B. And good luck to you, kicking_k, always one of my favourites.
Also, I like Chris Cohen's singing.
I guess it's likely that if you're not enamoured with all the detail of this album, you might get a little bored. But I love the care taken over every note.
I liked "a dusting of Springfield in Torrissi, and a sanding of Shaw" though.
I'm rather looking forward to their album.
look exactly the same.
because it hopefully means Marnie Stern will play some other shows while she's here.
I missed them this year, because I am a fool.
is entirely joyous.
Gawd, I hope they come back to play the UK next year.
1. Marnie Stern - This is It etc etc
2. Abe Vigoda - Skeleton
3. Ponytail - Ice Cream Spiritual
4. Why? - Alopecia
5. Mount Eerie & Julie Doiron - Lost Wisdom
6. Rings - Black Habit
7. Cryptacize - Dig That Treasure
8. Deerhoof - Offend Maggie (probably, only listened to it once)
Take that, Norfolk.
how Radio 1 is celebrating all these things it believes made it a great radio station over the past 40 years but no longer embodies any of these aspects. I don't have time to elaborate on this but it is definitely true.
EXCEPT, one example: they go on about how great John Peel was despite the fact they treated him really badly in the latter part of his career.
p.s. Huw Stephens is ok but plays some terrible stuff sometimes.
escape death about once every couple of months?
and it's taken until 2007 for someone to have the guts to say it.
Architecture in Helsinki and Deerhoof on those Robinsons adverts.
As you said, increased exposure from adverts etc never lasts. It just promotes the band as a disposable novelty. Or something. I expect people will get bored of the Gossip soon, if they're not already.
It's quite good really.
The last single was great. I'm sure this one can't be that bad.
was one of the best albums of last year.
like Lily Allen.
Look what happens when Madonna opens her mouth:
I wish I lived in Norwich.
Or that there were more trains.
I can't wait for this album.
"Yes. But presumably something else people should learn in the first grade is that it's wrong to kill those who don't agree with you and to gas people until they die," he said.
the Blood Arm live once and they were rubbish.
The guitarist was inept.
The singer spent the duration of the set in the crowd.
Weird Robin Hood intro.
And so on...
and Lil' Chris went to the same school donchaknow.
As music videos are purely a promotional tool, I don't understand why Universal would care so much about them being viewed for free. More people watching = more good, surely? I don't have Sky so the only time I see music videos is on Popworld (it's still good) or on Youtube. Perhaps they're just stuck on auto-litigious mode.
I am baffled. Maybe if I reread No Logo?
the set had loads of new songs in it, why did that Channel4 V program only show them playing songs from OK Computer/The Bends/Pablo Honey? To annoy me?
