Damn it The The

I'd forgotten just how damn depressing most The The tracks are – if you think the Smiths are depressing just go listen to The Twighlight Hour from Soul Mining – ooh that just puts me in the wrong mood.

Next up, Waterfall by the Stone Roses – aah, that's much better thankyou…

Andy Williams must be pissed

Caught some crap on the Beeb on saturday night, a Swing revival show.

Two things struck me – firstly it was nice how the beeb forgot to mention the real attraction of swing to many people these days – the gambling, whoreing, infidelity, drugs, drink, mafia connections, associated violence, racism and all the rest – I am sure Robbie Williams loves swing for the music and not the lifestyle.

Secondly, how pissed off must Andy Williams be – one of the more successful crooners of his era – to be down the bill, beaten to the big lights by that minor irritant Tony "please go away" Christie – Amarillo Shmamrillo. I am sure Andy loved that.

Enough with the Swing, Abbatastic, 70s flashback crap shows – actually, maybe I'll just go to the pub instead…
