Hey, so, our gig is like tonight and stuff.
A brief summary on the rules for our new songs.
Tom has introduced me to my new favourite song and a new spiritual leader.
You may remember that I posted my favourite albums of 2010 on this very blog, and as my levels of self-absorbtion have increased through being a humanities student with too much time on his hands, I started a Tumblr dedicated to me (as did Massey, but I can’t find his at the moment).
As a manboy with journalistic (?) inclinations (have written for magazines and websites here and there) I thought it made me vaguely qualified to pour my opinions into your ears (it doesn’t). So without more ramblings, here’s a list of my 15 favourite albums of 2011 (click the link).
Thought I’d write about my top 20 albums of last year. It’s been a lot of fun listening back to all the albums I’ve really liked this year and putting them in some sort of order. That’s probably because I’m a massive geek. However, I’m sure there are plenty of albums that I haven’t been able to…
Hello to our good friends and followers.
We are currently in the process of writing new material (which stem from some of the best riffs I think I’ve ever written) and have a ‘comeback show’ in our native city of Bath tentatively scheduled for Friday, 6th April at St. James Wine Vaults. This is great news as I’ve been itching to play a ‘rock show’ with some of my best friends for quite some time and St. James has consistently been great to us, and is my favourite venue to play.
Sadly, David decided he was done with playing with us a few months ago so this will be our first gig as a one-guitar band, and we’ll play it by ear from then-on out. There’s no animosity as he’s in the process of sorting out uni stuff and I’m sure he’ll be writing some shredding songs of his own very soon.
You may notice I’ve put a pie-chart which appears above this post, and I’ve posted it because:
Sorry for the lengthy rant dudes, just something I felt the need to say, and if I can’t say it on the internet (land of the free, home of the brave, lair of the porn) then where can I?
Hope to see you in April. Let’s drink beer and high-five.
If you click back a page or so you’ll see the first instalment of these playlists.
Basically, to celebrate the fact we’re a functioning band again, I made a playlist (though it’s not really of a celebratory nature, it’s just really rad).
These tunes are on it (in this order):
Bustin’ Surfboards - The Tornadoes
Peg - Steely Dan
Back In The Saddle - Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
Dig For Fire - Pixies
Paper Thin Walls - Modest Mouse
Derailed - Joyce Manor
Bring Back Breakfast - A Great Big Pile Of Leaves
Loop The Loop - Wild Beasts
Ready For The World - How To Dress Well
Secretary Song - The Go! Team
Shelf Wobbler - Mr. Scruff
Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson
I’ll Come Running Back to You - Sam Cooke
You Used To Be A Sweet Clover Shaker - Robert Pete Williams
Game Of Pricks (Alien Lanes version) - Guided By Voices
German Bigflies - Port-Royal
If you enjoy the songs by any of the above artists, go out and buy their albums/t-shirts/tickets!
I hope you have a good time listening to this.
Normal service will resume here soon.
ps. Total radness.
THAT WAS OUR LAST GIG FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
