....Good Evening and Crack In The Paint. Really? You sure about that? Those are two crackingly peerlessly elegant concoctions and any album that those as the least memorable tunes is...well, it's got nothing much to worry about.

kanye reveals both Timba and Jay-Z might be on his record
in other news
what happened to Eminem? did he die?
in other other news
Dre reveals his album sounds a bit old fashioned now. gonna leave it 3 more years until it ripens and becomes old skool. album to feature kanye and snoop.
in yet more news
snoop's new album to feature kanye, timba, dre, jay z and 2pac
special tupac's latest record
"best thing happened my career" is to be a quadruple album and will only feature female musicians. janis, left eye, aalyiah, and oh I dunno, nina simone
nina simone declares "I am not dead, white boy". adding, think I might have that Kanye make me a record.
start press up again
kanye and timba both confess to employing ex members of Michael Jackson to make all ther beats.
Jackson, 74, looking tired announced his retirement, saying "I love those boys and I am proud to have made each and every one of the 563 Kanye joints that have cluttered up the charts since 2003. But enough is enough. I am going back to what I do best. Yaawyy-uh!"
Kanye revealed to be blind and retarded and the product of a bet between timba and Dre in 2002 about who is dumbest
and several of their records
Back In Black
For Thise About To Rock
to name two
once yu get to having four albums they do tend to blend a tad
but there is more rock genius scattered throughout their worst album
all of Biffy Clyro's records
alrighty is right
and any couple of their songs is fine
but they all sound exactly the same
you can sing any one of their songs over any one of their backing tracks
I knew Nick.
Good man. If a bit mad.
One time, me and him walked into famed Rock'n'roll hotel, TheColumbia, looking for a late night drink.
Normally you will find Mogwai or sundry bands staying there and mild to severe partying and good times.
it was block booked by abut 300 St Helen's Rugby League fans, with tatts and rugby shirts and moustaches and sensible haircuts and it was about 1am or so and they were not sober.
A real Slaughtered Lamb moment when we rolled in shouting and hammered.
Nick clocks the scene.
Everyone is looking at us.
He asks them who they are and what they are all here for?
One says it's for a big game that day, which by the looks of things, they had lost.
Nick looks the sky and says in a very loud and clear voice
"I have always thought that Rugby...................................................... is a fucking poofs game"
A little piece of me shrivelled up and other parts of me braced for the inevitable.
My life flashed before me, incoherently.
But, the bunch nearest us, started laughing and soonthey all did.
And then they bought us some beers.
"I knew we'd be alright here"
"Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm,well at least we aren't dead"

I'll tell you what is awful tho
that one with Fucked Up, and who could forget Peter & The Test Tube Babies Xmas 03 campaign
i bought my nuts exclusively from them all thru 2004.
and I like her album
mogwai most obviously
sigur ros for the quieter bits
others from slowdive, ride and chapterhouse on for the swirly guitars and detuned (!) voices low in ther mix
they all sucked
it is just a bit more complicated than that.
Mr Shields IS a geniyuss (props also obv to colm, deb and bilinda) and he clearly feels the music and bends it the way he knows it must go and from only shallow to soon to you made me realise, that is in some very different directions, and he was striving for a particular target each time.
all the copyists' targets were to make it sound as good as MBV;
so they failed.
there are two thinga MBV and MV have in common and that is the letters M and V
1. this album is amaaaazing. tune after tune. it utterly cuts loose and allows the genres that nudged their way in on Z to go to their logical conclusions. i know serious bands arent allowed to be fun and kerrazy guys are not allowed to be po faced, but yknow, fuck that.
2. i like at dawn too. and BoH and FF. but if they kept makng 'at dawn' that would just be a bit lame wouldn't it. y'all'd be "do we'all need another MMJ record, they are cool and all but all sound the same". see also fleet foxes 6th album.
3. loosen up people
except the hype that was not true about The Rising is actually true about Magic, but in an inverted Boy Who Cried Wolf scenario, no-one, myself included believed it.
Funny old world
