The guy was a Coventry legend, no two ways about it.
I used to be able to hear Dion Dublin having saxophone lessons in my neighbour's house. He was pretty good. He's also the only person whose penis has been described as "magnificent" by Sir Alex Ferguson. Er, to my knowledge.
what Electro-Shock Blues would have sounded like had it actually finished with 'PS I Love You', Hilary Swank on guest vocals
My friends wanted me to come over and play GTA4 the other night, but I just went out and massacred hundreds of innocent civilians before arbitrarily awarding myself monetary rewards for dangerous driving. Much more rewarding.
I could really do with knowing.
"We wanted to get a flying saucer/jetpacks/a lifesize model of Saturn, honest"
Great live band, but this is a tiresome running gag of theirs.
says that you are incorrect.
With all this anecdotal evidence you are really spoiling us!
I enjoyed his set at Glastonbury. Quite a lot. But for every song where his voice held out, there was a song where he was distinctly - at times even painfully - offtune. I can appreciate why people are celebrating these gigs, but his voice has (understandably) deteriorated noticably.
Also - THE BRONX
Appeals to the kind of people who thought that the funniest kids at school were the fat, unpopular ones who sat in the corner saying "BADGER" to each other in a wacky voice in lieu of humour.
FOR THE GREATEST VICTORY OF THEM ALL
Although I can't help but feel that this interview was a little bit partisan, especially compared to previous DiSbands.
looks like a LOT of fun. Wish I could go.
That'd be more dates than Tool or Beastie Boys ffs.
It'll be insane enough as it is if they do two nights, I'll be (pleasantly) surprised if they sell out one.
the long-winded sequel to Ooh La?
that that grabs me so far. Not sure if I'll go this year.
If it is a joke, his delivery is fucking terrible and it's been repeated enough times to quickly be getting old. Much easier to say he's just tangled up in his own bitter elitism EYE EMM OH.
This really manages to make him sound like a stuck-up dickhead.
I particularly enjoyed it when he whined about how he can't develop an interest in someone who doesn't share his taste, and then one track later devotes an entire convoluted song title to some bizarre attempt to categorise people as morons because they don't automatically associate such conventions with two relatively obscure indie artists.
if you gathered up your mum and the family dog, got her drunk, took her to a fancy recording studio and told her to knock out a cover of The Prayer in an hour.
I saw this article somewhere else, like, ages ago. I don't know why it's turning up everywhere now.
Choking at Partyshank btw, comfortably one of the worst 'acts' I've ever had the misfortune of sharing air with.
Yannis' mum uses out of date coupons at Subway - and gets away with it!
Tim Harrington's brother leaves less than 10% tip at family restaurant!
Eddie Argos' dad's dog befouls London street!
WITH YOUR FEEDBACK
is in the Reptilia performance, where we see the world's worst stagedive on 0:47, which is then immediately beaten by the even worse one on 0:56.
A LIKELY STORY
nme.com made the mistake this morning, and DiS often lift stories from there, so maybe that's it.
are performing their Nite Versions covers live these days. It's really really good as well.
They're so far above shite like Hard-Fi it's untrue.
and my god, was I bored.
...a sex criminal
I'm choking everytime I watch that.
Were you actually being serious with that rant just there?!
I'd definitely go otherwise.
I can't see it catching on.
Good review though, definitely worthy of a 9. Wp all.
a third of listeners gave up by the end of the album?
Think she's currently faffing around with some dangerously Spinal Tap-esque rock fantasy comic book film type thing-ma-doodle.
another Auf Der Maur album in my life. I really do. The first one was fantastic.
Still have a soft spot for Version 2.0, even if it's probably quite dated now. I can't even remember what anything after that sounds like, which is almost definitely a good thing.
The first paragraph of this review made me laugh quite a lot as well.
at the Oxford Union, not the Bodleian/University?
Or am I just being similarly tactless?
write some good Simpsons episodes again.
SORT OUT YOUR FUCKING GRAMMAR GROENING
wasn't as good as the Smashing Pumpkins' effort.
an Elvis Presley cheeseburger stand.
Maybe even a picture of Jimi Hendrix to warn against the dangers of vomiting and motion sickness.
This is one of the most impressive singles all year for me, and I really expected them to flop.
but saying that people from Texas are backward?! And that Americans are dumb?! I need a lie down.
it's almost as if they're TRYING to be difficult. I mean, it's not that bad, but the logo change is nuts.
