Re: Tender Trap and Standard Fare - The Library, Leeds, 9th

Epic bump - I'll be internetless until a few days after this happens, so this is one of my last chances to do some kind of "promotion".

Re: This Many Boyfriends

#1 is the shaping up to be the song of the summer. Does the chorus of IDLY(CYDLTP) mean that he doesnt like the person he loves is because they don't like Pastals in an opposittes attract kinda way. Sometimes i spend minutes staring into space trying to navigate through all the double negativey gra...

Re: Dan Treacy and the Television Personalities

The new album arrived on my doorstep on Saturday, so I'm just giving it a second listen now. If anything, Dan sounds WAY more together on this than anything he's done for years. She's My Yoko is incredible, and My New Tattoo would have been amazing if it were a proper song, rather than 90 seconds of...

Re: This Many Boyfriends

If it's any more enticement, I've seen the fanzine that comes with the EP (Richard asked me nicely to write down what all the chords to the songs are). It's definitely worth the fiver on its own. The fact that the fanzine comes with badges, stickers and...like...a CD as well makes it all the more wo...

Tender Trap and Standard Fare - The Library, Leeds, 9th July

Howdy! I've not posted on here for ages (as in literally years), but I felt obliged to resume communications for a little bit of a plug. Myself and Richard Boyfriend have taken it upon ourselves to bring Amelia Fletcher to the north of England. Details as follows: TENDER TRAP + STANDARD FARE + two o...

Re: Things I am listening to now then

Morrissey "Roy's Keen" I've listened to Maladjusted about three times in the past couple of days. I've owned it for about a year and a half and it's the most I've listened to it since I bought it. Maybe it's a subconscious reaction to the remaster/reissue they're putting out, which takes this song ...

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey

All these are signs I'm too old for gigs. Even gigs featuring old people. Great line! Gotta agree with you! I do have to quote something funny I read from someone over at solo (credit to FDR): 50 cancellations since 2002. Recently toured: Robert Smith, 49. About to tour: Dave Gahan, 46. On tour: Br...

Quite a lot. I've been watching (and quoting) 'The Thick of It' almost constantly in anticipation.

Re: Bruce Springsteen global pop tribute

Tell you what though, that Bonnie 'Prince' Billy/Tortoise version of Thunder Road is shite, isn't it? I can't imagine Kevin Rowland doing it. Was it on My Beauty ? Yes but only the early promos. It never made it to the pressed version (can't remember what legal reasons were, possibly licensing). It...
