I got a band called The Make-Up. Never heard of them, but I rather like this song I found on youtube:

I got Belle & Sebastian. Hmm, I was hoping to get Neutral Milk Hotel, I knew I shouldn't have picked that strange cartoon character girl playing a guitar, I don't even know what cartoon she springs from. I now expect a storm of disapprobation from anorakers in the know.

I mean B & S are OK, I've always liked plenty of their songs but they're a band I just can't fall in love with.

If anybody knows Denisss Wheatley from Pacific he recorded a lot of material just before C86. As an art student there may have been video / film stuff but I do know that he recorded lots of live material.

There's also this from the band I was in. :)



Be gentle. I'm 'Bez'. ;-O

I got Sleater-Kinney, a fortnight after finishing off reading Carrie Brownstein's autobiography. Subliminal, yet fitting.

Found myself quite enjoying the Mercury Prize winner. Something's gone wrong here hasn't it?

Hello Anorak. If anyone's after something to read, I've just published a blogpost.

Quiet or loud? Punk, folk or dreampop? It depends on the background noise. (But the answer is never Hard-Fi.)

Observer piece about 'Anarchy in the UK' 40 years on:

It's flawed but it's a good read.

Thanks for posting that. A good read indeed. (Except I don't understand why he keeps saying that they "could have been The Who", if they'd continued, like that'd have been good thing. If, like The Pistols, The Who had split after their first four hits ('I can't explain', 'Anyway, anyhow, anywhere', 'My generation' and 'Substitute') they would be more, not less legendary in my mind.)

This is entirely correct.

This part made me smile.
Since rock ’n’ roll was the creation of those excluded from the American dream, the least we can do is actively use music to fight for the rights of the disenfranchised and discriminated, blah blah blah, but here’s my new angle:

Sometimes, something doesn’t need to be precisely or even accurately political to be political.
No shit.
