Do you ever get that thing where there’s so much to write about, you kinda miss it all. Yes, as do I dear poppers – but today I aim to attack just a couple of things that have been in my mind to scribe over the last week or so. Firstly, to apologise for the very poor showing of Tell Massini, the stupid Alcopop horse who singularly failed to bring home the bacon – but also to let you know about a rather fun podcast, This is Reality, based in Oxfordshire, who seem to be giving us rather a love-in at the moment. Bless ‘em.
Big fans of My First Tooth, and come on now – if you aren’t you should be, it’s noticeable they tend to have a playlist of gold actually – and definitely put the work in… Just the other week I heard a specially created Alcopop megamix which was rather nice, and ith a quick glance to the playlist, one can see they regularly spin the likes of TTNG, Ex Libras and apparently a Hanson cover of Radiohead.. Sure, sure. They also boast a mascot which is a big dog thing wearing headphones… Which is cool.
Also meant to mention that the wonderful Elephants rocked up an awesome London show last week at Matt Horne’s takeover of Shoreditch party thing, wih the likes of My Tiger, My Timing and Jodie Harsh sharing the bill. By all accounts, Elepahnts slayed like tusk-wielding maniac mammals on the loose, which they tend to do in truth… And were pretty much the standout act of the evening.
It was Stagecoach who ventured that opinion too, and the good lads of Coach don’t lie – they’ve been brought up waaaay too nice for that..! (I once suggested to Nick Coach’s dad, whilst discussing his offspring, that he must have good sperm…. True story *cringe*)
Oh and finally, you should definitely check out the new Candle Thieves video for We’re all Gonna Die (have fun) which is coming out on Downtown Records tres soon… It’s magic!
