Here I Am, Rock You Like The Remnants Of A Former Category 2 Hurricane Now Classified As A Tropical Storm
…Just doesn’t have the same ring, does it? Isabel has turned out to be less of a chain-smoking, fishnet-wearing, crab-infested dirty hoor than a drab librarian-type with mismatched socks, a slouch and questionable personal hygiene.
I have no idea what I meant by that.
Belle & Sebastian will be releasing a new single to follow-up their fifth proper album, Dear Catastrophe Waitress, out on the 7th of October. They are breaking from form, however, but using an album track as the lead song for the single. One of the best things about B&S was their penchant for releasing EPs of all-new material, often containing some of their best material. I understand the need to have a charting single to promote album sales, but I am still a little disappointed. Thank you, Rough Trade. The Step Into My Office, Baby single should be out on November 4.
Ever wonder what batch of fifth-graders though of Radiohead? An interesting experiment involving 10-year olds, Thom Yorke, pencil and paper. Some fascinating results. From Donewaiting.
Monty Python & The Holy Grail – The Musical? I dunno, sounds dodgy… but if Mike Nichols and Eric Idle are involved, it could have merit. I dunno.
Lead guitarists rank 38 on Nerve.com’s Unsexy List. Well shit. Uh, I don’t think of myself as a lead guitarist so much as a guitarist who plays a lot of, uh, single-note melodic rhythm… yeah… Fuck it. Like I need a list to articulate my ineffable unsexiness.
