Some things

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.

    The eurovision voting HAS to be political, otherwise most of the fun in watching it would be leached out….I love to hate Terry Wogan's snippy comments when no-one gives england any points, he's great.

  3. Is that 'Get Your Dukes Up Johnny' or whatever it's called? God song but nowhere near the quality of 'Goodbye Little Rose'. Also I would suggest you check the link to the website. A .com/.co.uk mixup can lead to rather unfortunate results.

  4. Oooopsy. I got fooled by the fact that the link is labelled as .com on the SonyBMG website.

    Yes that is what it's called and I agree, Goodbye Little Rose is best. Their set closer is really cool but I've never caught what the name of it is. Don't think it's their new single.

  5. Ah ha, I found el problem. It's either thelittleflames.com or littleflames.co.uk …which is a bit trixie for innocent kiddlies.
