Breakfast in Fur

Breakfast in Fur

  • 25th September 2010

The creative juices can flow at the worst times – I’ve irked many a neighbour at 3 in the morning perfecting a few bars of music. Maybe it’s the rush of adrenaline from the fear that an irate pyjama clad person may knock on my door and shoot my face…

Gaggle

  • 23rd September 2010

Choirs conjure up a tirade of stereotypes, usually involving grey hair and cups of 50p tea served in polystyrene.  As a member of London Philharmonic Choir my liver can certainly prove we drink more Stella than PG Tips. Gaggle, the female alternative choir from London, are legions apart from crusty old…

  • 25th August 2010

Sound men at music venues have to listen to so much shit that alongside my sympathy for them I always wonder how aural torture affects their tastes. I’d say they either: Detune their standards until Jedward sound like Marvin Gaye reincarnate. Can pick a cherry from a turdy fog but…

Mines by Menomena – Many Milliseconds of Aural Pleasure

  • 20th August 2010

Portland experimental rockers Menomena have released their new album Mines. It’s absolutely spell-binding. I don’t have much to add over the excellent MusicOMH review of Mines other than this is one of my albums of the year so far. I’m a big fan of experimentalism within pop aesthetics, rather like Yeasayer’s…

The Shadow Orchestra Bangs its Drum

  • 13th August 2010
