Fascist Dictator of the Heath Davis Appreciation Society
Supporting Petone's Finest since the very start - Iain O'Brien
Adam Wheater - Another batsman off the Essex production line
Also Supporting the All Time #1 Batsman of All Time Ever - Jacques Kallis and the much maligned Peter Siddle.
Vimes tells it how it is:
Broken Hearts Are For Assholes - Danny Pearson
Aside from having possibly the best name for a song ever, this is meltingly lovely. You really want to give Danny a hug.
- As featured in The Independent.
"Straight out of England's Bumper Book of Balls ups"
- Mike Selvey on England's first innings collapse at The Gabba
Between Days - Red House Painters
From their Old Ramon swansong. A lot rockier than the majority of their ouevre.
Elbow - Lippy Kids
Combining Burgey's pet hates.
LCD soundsystem - North American Scum
Been listening to a lot of Spanish and Latin American music recently. So gooood.
Long Gone Day - Mad Season
The grunge supergroup escaped my attention at the time, which, given their members, is rather remiss on my part. FTR Layne Stanley (Alice in Chains), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) & John Baker Saunders (nope, me neither). Helped out by the deific Mark Lanegan on a couple of songs, including this one.
It's reminiscent of all the various members' day jobs, but with a heavy, subtly jazzy vibe & what sounds like a double bass. Recommeded if you like any of said bands.
That one album they made with Staley is pretty good imo. Wake Up is probably my favourite song.
There was a hell of a lot of collaboration in that period, though not surprising given how many of those bands were Seattle based.
Anyway, moving onto to another new aquisition:
Child - The Maccabies
It's restrained, dreamy indie guitar pop. Doves the obvious reference point.
Yeah, liked their third album.
Jake Bugg - Taste It
Could be a forum anthem.
Saw him live supporting Noel Gallagher last month. Wasn't overly impressed tbh.
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Probably too big a stage for him atm. Saw him at Bestival in a little packed-out tent and he was blinding. Has some really good songs, I recommend giving his new album a try.
Bloc Party - Kreuzeberg
Saw them live last night. Outstanding. But they didn't play this
Appreciate Swanneh For The Genius He Is.
Bore off, seriously.
