Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

to, mostly listening

1. various brian jonestown massacre. ever since i saw the film dig! i've been curious about this lot. i've picked up a few albums and i'm glad i did. servo off the album give it back! is a bit of a fave rave.
2. the life pursuit - belle & sebastian b&s have got their knockers and it's true that they tend towards the sick-making end of cute on occasions, but there are some "cracking tunes" on this one, in particular we are the sleepyheads.
3. arctic monkeys lp it's always nice to be into something that no-one else knows about. there are two or three songs on this where everything fits together perfectly, and a couple where the music doesn't quite match up to the singing. the singer's got a great voice and they record it well, it's right in your face. he's got the knack of writing clever lyrics without hardly ever appearing smart-arse, and that's not an easy thing to do. can't knock it really. nobody can, but i sense that they want to. and they will, eventually.

  • I threatened not to listen to the Arctic Monkeys for at least two years as I refuse absolutely of giving anyone the fuel to call me trendy or bandwagon jumping, but my mate John has gone and got it for me and is raving so I have to listen to it now.
