Re: Glasgow

The Girls Names gig on Sunday night has been cancelled. Not sure why but it's a bit of a bummer.

Re: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

This POBPAH fan blog is pretty cool. They posted our hey, linus!'s artwork for Kurt Cobain's Cardigan the other day too and gave a mention to Atomic Beat Records.

Edit - the title of the blog makes it potentially NSFW.

I don't think he's got much time for gigging these days. Those windows aren't going to clean themselves.

Re: Glasgow

Are there any good gigs happening soon? Girls Names are playing The Captain's Rest on 26th June but that's all I've got for the rest of the month. July's looking pretty good though with the Heavenly opening gig and our night with Math and Physics Club.

Re: Indietracks 2011 - an indiepop compilation

Is the title of the Hidden Cameras song a reference to the Anorak strapline, or is that wishful thinking?

Re: Scrabble (and related games, for example Wordfeud)

I'm doing terribly against you, Tom and Marianthi. I'm thinking about taking my ball back and going home in a giant sulk. You could hardly have picked harder opponents to start against in Tom and Marianthi - they're both brilliant at it! Scrabble games between me and Tom are like a tennis match bet...

Re: Glasgow

Anoraks, come to the lovely Laurieston Bar tonight. We have convinced the landlord to sell real ale for one night only and there's 72 pints of it that need supped. I could be talked into going to this if anyone else is. Edit - I don't mean anyone other than Sootyzilla. An Anorak mini midweek meetup...

Re: Roger Gunnarsson (Nixon/Free Loan Investments/Garlands..

Does the €8 for the CD include postage to the UK? Sorry if it says somewhere on the website or on Paypal but my French isn't up to much.

Re: last.fm

I use last.fm to keep track of what I've been playing. I don't use the radio function, I rarely look at other people's profiles and, while I'm happy for people to look at mine, I can't really think why they would want to. It's also quite good for finding out about when bands I've listened to are com...

I still haven't got the Zoey Van Goey album, to my shame. How does it compare to the first album?

Re: Albums 2011

I think my favourite so far is the Crystal Stilts album, although I haven't got as many new albums this year compared to the last few years.
