  • Dare I say the new Morrissey album, and enjoying enormously, though I have yet to fully absorb, strikes me immediately as a very powerful album.

  • Currently wondering which member of the Manic Street Preachers is the Goldfrapp fan?

    Have a listen to the intro of "Europa Geht Durch Mich" from the new album if you wonder why ;o)



    Ahem.

    Ha ha - just spotted this in the review of the Manics album for The Quietus:-

    'Europa Geht Durch Mich' (Europe Passes Through Me) doesn't just sound like Goldfrapp: it plain goddamn IS Goldfrapp, to the extent that you can only burst out laughing the first time you hear that electro-glam schaffel intro, a synthesized klaxon blast every eighth beat, and realise that it isn't actually a cover of the Frapp's 'Train'. Wire can try throwing people off the scent by calling it an "industrial/dominatrix 'Nutbush City Limits'" till he's blue in the face, but he's fooling nobody.

    A million fires before your harvest comes. To burn out.

  • "Europa Geht Durch Mich" ...trying too hard boys!!

    ... also reminds me of this.

    That's the very reason it works for me - that period of Simple Minds (Sons And Fascination / Sister Feelings Call / Empires & Dance) is one of my favourite things (ie before they jumped their own shark) so to have the Manics cross that with a Goldfrapp synth riff is a bit of a non-guilty pleasure!

  • Whilst cycling across a sweltering London village this evening I was listening to Girls! Girls! Girls! by Sailor although only in my head! #earworm. Can't think what prompted that!
    What if the Hokey Cokey is what it's all about?

    Yellow, red, black or white
    Add a little bit of Moonlight
    For this intercontinental romance
    Shy girls, sexy girls, they all like that fancy world
    Champagne, a gentle song and a slow dance
    Who makes it fun to spend your money, who calls you honey, most every day?
    Girls, girls, girls.
    You old romantic !
    The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ.
    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit.
    Shall lure it back to cancal half a line,
    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

    ...still feel Fields missed their massive potential!

  • Queen - I want it all
  • Watched a gig on iPlayer on the train home by Charlotte Church it was preceded by a documentary about the making of said music. The music is out there and original (not sure to my taste) I'd be interested to hear what you think? Charlotte Church
