Firstly, check out the Little Flames website . Mat, their guitarist, is lovely and also does all their art work, having been in art school when the band started up (in typical rock'n'roll history fashion). They also produce very listenable and high energy music and their new single has a hilarious name.
Secondly, I really want to go see 9 songs in the student cinema when it's on. I've heard so much about how shocking it is and isn't that I just want to go and see for myself now!
Thirdly, let me just remind you to get the Arcade Fire album Funeral in case you've forgotten already and also to get hold of A Certain Trigger by the tantalising Maximo Park.
A bound-to-be-a-classic that you might want to add to your collection is Ben Folds Songs for Silverman which, for your info, comes in a very kitsch CD/DVD package in the form of a hardback book. Ben Folds and a piano also comes to Warwick Arts Centre in the near future in a sold out show.
Also, a curiosity, did anyone watch Eurovision last night?
Poor Javine got very few votes, 8 of her points, surprise surprise, coming from Ireland. I feel really bad for her, not least because the song that won, from Greece, was practically exactly the same song: same style, same delivery…same dress!
A question: why is Eurovision voting so political? It's not as if it really impacts on anything at the end of it all.
