Oh, that just made me well up all over again. It's simply beautiful. And Bart's daughter whooping at the end too. Just wonderful.

Re: Indietracks 2012 Memories and Photos

There were so many moments, but two that brought me to tears and will stay with me forever as being magical, treasured moments: Bart Cummings & Pam Berry on Saturday, and Rose Melberg on Sunday. Most folks will have been dancing merrily to what was no doubt a rollicking set (as always) by Allo Darli...

This is the most perfect slice of melancholic pop I've heard all year.

Re: Game of Thrones

There's nothing in my post above that wasn't covered in the first episode of this new season (and my post was made after it aired here in the UK). You saw the burning of The Seven. You saw Stannis proclaimed as the chosen one by Melisandre and taking Lightbringer from the flames. You saw Stannis dic...

Re: Game of Thrones

I 'think' Stannis was cut from the TV adaptation although featured in the first book (although only as a minor character). Stannis wants to go to war regardless of Melisandre, He believes he is the rightful heir now that Robert is dead (believing that Joffrey is a bastard so to Jaime). Melisandre i...

Re: Game of Thrones

Considering Dinklage is as far removed from Martin's physical description of Tyrion, he plays it beautifully. He well deserves his top billing this season. And Jack Gleeson is remarkable: every bit the snotty-nosed, petulant, vile boy-king that he comes across in the books. Having read the books bef...

Re: Your Indietracks 2012 Wishlist (and actual announcements

That' super awesome. I'm really excited about seeing Proper Ornaments. And Go Sailor, obviously.

If Black Tambourine aren't announced (Slumberland stage + EP out in May), I'll eat my hat.

The gig was awesomeness beyond awesomeness. All three bands were awesome, but Tunabunny were awesomeness beyond awesomeness beyond awesomeness.

In short, awesome.

Re: Shrag + Tunabunny + Horowitz, Nottingham 2nd March

I haven't been this excited about a gig since, umm well Monday at Allo' Darlin/Tigercats/Red Shoe Diaries. Two gigs of awesomeness in one week up 'ere in the Midlands is fabulous. I might go wild and have a shandy. Maybe even two.

Re: Tigercats

Tigercats were simply fabulous in Leicester on Monday supporting Allo Darlin'. Full of nervous spiky post-punk energy and tropicalia. It felt like The Suburban Kids doing early Talking Heads covers and was as wonderful as that sounds.

Re: New musical discoveries

The Tear Talk mini-album is getting countless repeat plays these past few weeks. It's simply incredible. You can stream a few tracks from Bandcamp and there's a track on Youtube.
