Mixtape: From blown speakers
Big news on PopJustice regarding Lorraine. Hurrah! I agree with everything he says about fixing them.
Reviews coming up soon of Just Jack and Patrick Wolf...git yer Patrique icons here.
That new remix of Yoko Ono on Arjan is really quite marvy. Loooove how he says he "had the pleasure of meeting Yoko Ono for the second time a few weeks ago." Yeah, bitch? Well I fucked her! Just to see the apartment, of course. If you get that obscure reference, you get a prize.
The Jam are reuniting, minus Paul Weller! That makes sense, considering he wrote and sang the songs. Expect a turnout of 10.
The parade of post-Arctic Monkeys spawn marches on with a zillion new grim BritPop bands full of vaguely educated boys who cannot play their instruments or clean their faces. Snowfight In The City Centre is one of the few I have liked.
WinterKids are a bunch of teenagers from Peaslake,wherever that is. I'd like them even more if they'd let the little sister sing everything. Who Am I Kidding? makes me want to sway in a laundrette. And yes, they have lush art direction.
Follwing this, note that I have a Britpop tag, but it'll take awhile to populate it. I also have a Norway/Sweden tag!
Back to Europop, the new Jay Jay Johanson is blah. Sorry! And I don't want to hear Belinda Carlisle warble shoddy chansons du merde.
Also high in suckage is the new Brett Anderson CD. I am sad to say that, I hoped the messageboards would be wrong.
My new lamp!
Matinee Club. Jeebus. More mistakes being made there than Jet Blue (in-joke for the 5 Americans who read this blog). I am not laying down $24 for a box that has the CD single, video and a vinyl set of mixes. Please.
M: The thing is: I'm the fucking boss
Later Wednesday, a sneak peek at the new Lucky Soul artwork and a new MP3 from them...
