    Incidentally, anyone heard their newest effort? I personally quite like the other two but only in a 'this is decent' way.
    Actually thought there were some rippers on the third album, fourth is same as the second for me, ok but not stunning.

    Haven't listened to the third in a while, found it in a box of CDs the other day, moved about a few times over the last few years and had about 100 albums unaccounted for, that amongst them. Will probably blast it at the end of the week. Remember preferring it to the second anyway.

    Is This It was also amongst said box btw and have enjoyed playing it over and over and over and over since, after not listening to it in about three or four years

    Haven't procured the fourth LP yet, but think I prefer the second to the third from memory. Another band who made an unimpeachably manificent debut and never quite matched up to it again.

    Anyway:

    Run - Stephen Fretwell

    AKA the Gavin & Stacey theme. Chap has a great, soulful voice. Mates with Elbow, so keeps good company.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I wonder if diehard Strokes fans get as annoyed by that label as some of the diehard oasis fans I know do

    TBF most people prefer Oasis' second album

    They're wrong. "The earth is flat" or "Ravi Bopara is a test bastman" wrong.

    Meanwhile:

    Emily- Stephen Fretwell

    Beady Eye - Wind Up Dream

    Liam's 'woo', Gem's harmonica solo and Liam and the band's 'aaahahhh's at the end make this a song to die for. Listen to it. NOW!

    Good Thing - Fine Young Cannibals

    Hard band to pin down. Pop, soul, blues, ska all in the mix. Gift one of Britain's most underrated vocalists too.

    The Ocean - Richard Hawley

    Lushly orchestrated gorgeousness from Sheffield's own Scott Walker.

    Radiohead - Motion Picture Soundtrack

    Utterly glorious is this. Maybe if you could hear what Thom was singing it could be improved, but bar that, it's totally perfect.
