Back from InWhySee: Nibbly Bits
First: Madonna live: EPIC. Review coming... Second, I did not create that Bouncey/Marge image above - some clever poster on the Velvet Rope did it. That real album cover is steaming shit... Apparently I was Blogger Of The Week in the Popjustice Newsletter while I was gone, so all the people who clicked for the first time saw an old post or posts about Boulder which they could care less about!...Read an interview with Roddy Woomble, who one wicked fan thinks looks like a "piss-soaked Edinburgh homeless person"...Morrissey is getting the remaster treatment before the year's end, so that's more $ gone from my shallow pocket...Have you seen all these We Are The 80's hits albums? Odd...Two very good places to eat in NYC (both on the UWS): Sarabeth's and Isabella's. Take an Xolondon Vacation...Badly Drawn Boy, who has seriously disappointed me after his perfect About A Boy soundtack, will release a new album on October 23 called Born in the UK...Playlouder reviews Lily Allen and The Pipettes...You can watch a video interview with quirky cute Imogen Heap, who talks about being arrested for stealing cookies...For the oldies, my belurved Lloyd Cole finally finished his album. He's been working on it for 2 years! At 40 mins (with 11 songs), tracks include "The Young Idealists" "How Wrong Can You Be?" and "Rolodex Incident." It's out this fall!..Be sure to read Torr's short piece on Cerys from Catatonia. A Welsh girl talking about living in Tennessee. Excellent stuff...When the fock is that new Scissor Sisters song giong to leaky leaky? It can't come quickly enough (umm, see what I did there?!)...
