Re: pop songs with girls talking

I'm glad it's an early start - I'm extremely tempted to skip the WBG's and try and get to Highbury to see Soda Foutain Rag.
My official but not necessarily reliable source says that the Pines will be last, so I don't think your plan will work, Ian.

See you tomorrow!!

Hello, Phil!

It's funny that you posted on this thread today, because today I was discovered on soulseek by a fellow Devoner and indiepopper. Hard to believe, but true. And ever so exciting.

In my memories Clean Monday is always in the middle of March, and usually unreasonably cold. Despite that, half the time the wind fails to blow properly, which leaves me heartbroken. I just couldn't understand how it could possibly not be windy on the one day when you needed it to be. It just wasn't...

To be honest, I had never heard of Starve Tuesday either. Proof that you don't listen to me when I talk, #765... As I have told you before, said Tuesday is the beginning of Lent here in this funny country. I think the idea is that you make pancakes to use up the things you will not be eating for fo...

We had fun too. Phew! Was really worried that the small crowd for the dancing would have spoilt your night. Glad it didn't. Thanks so much for playing the great songs afterwards! We'd be more than glad to have you back for another night in the future. We did have fun. Though I wouldn't quite call y...

Just to remind to Dimitradaisy that there is an Exeter (and Devon) thread on here. Aw thank you Marianthi. I had just found it myself, but you seem to be a little faster with posting. Must be all the practise. I am coming to see you this year, I promise. I want to go to the seaside and play with th...

Oh look, there is indeed a thread about Exeter. And, who would have guessed it, it's been started by my *husband* at that too.

It just occurred to me that I think I know you! Are you the same Martijn who lived in Glasgow? And are you the same Lyns I had cherry beer with, in Aberdeen by any chance? And seeing as this is a thread about books, not about People One Knew Off The Internet Once Upon A Time, I'm reading a book cal...

it's strange to hear that they're disappointing live... from that session they seem like they should be good Johan, I don't know where you got the idea that they are disappointing live from. We went to see them in Exeter a while ago, partly because we sort of liked them, and partly because they wer...

The really long song - which I love - on True Love Waits Vol. 2 isn't on 'It's Been a While' either. Ah, yes. The really long song. That goes up and down and is full of pictures. I rather love that one. Then again, I love pretty much anything Joe has been involved in, so that doesn't mean anything ...

Help! I am getting sucked into this forum! It is addictive!

On a different note, my favourite is 'Bedlam on the mezzanine' and I think I play it next to the Razorcuts a lot, because I fell in love with them at about the same time.

I have to say, they totally reminded me of the Smiths on the day I fell in love with them -- a day when I was paying my OTE bill at Monastiraki (Marianthi will know what I mean) of all things and places! But that's how these things happen sometimes. You have a record lying around for months and then...

As much as I dislike My Space - it's put me in touch with loads of like minded bands. Sure they were there already, but without a common place to go - they were harder to find. Well, yes. Of course. That's what the whole internet is about, and MySpace is just an expression of this. But it such an u...

Sorry.

Few things feel me with joy as much as singing "I'm thinking it's a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned." And for really serious happiness, nothing beats "once we were damned/ now I guess we are angels." Other happy songs: Peter Bjorn and J...
