Daniel and Lauren’s all-time favourite songs, September 2014

Daniel and Lauren’s all-time favourite songs, September 2014

Noted Australian music critic Jake Cleland paid a fleeting visit to our house the other day while he was in town for Big Sound: stopped for a beef curry and a muted chat, you could tell he was in the middle of industry convention lock down mode and the change of pace threw him some, […]

A response to ‘For Whatever Reason’ | A photograph of Plan B and Careless Talk Costs Lives magazines from 2001-2009

A response to ‘For Whatever Reason’  | A photograph of Plan B and Careless Talk Costs Lives magazines from 2001-2009

My Facebook feed has been full of commentary following my repost of Annie Gardiner’s excellent ‘For Whatever Reason…’ (Access) (an installation of copies of NME magazine from 1989-2008). My response is above (the piles lying: male-female-both). This, I feel is WAY more representative of music being made during the 2000s than that piles of NMEs. But who […]

Editorial from The Legend! #4, 1985

At the start of this year, I started a Tumblr blog and began posting recollections there – half-remembered, faceless – of events that had happened to me in the past. My friend Vincent Vanoli drew some wonderful illustrations to accompany the vignettes – being French, occasionally a word would become lost in the translation but that […]

The return of Everett True | 52. Los Animalitos Del Bosque

More recommendations from the promised city, Barcelona. I mean, Jesus fuck does my contact there have my number or what? This description of his kills me. I was prepared to make this a Song of the Day before I even listened to a note. LOS ANIMALITOS DEL BOSQUE: they are like Ramones or Barracudas for […]

The return of Everett True | 51. Sleaford Mods

I’m a bit slow here. Loads of people been making noise about this bunch for quite a fucking while. Here on this very site, for one. Held off, didn’t I? Not a fucking sheep now, innit? Fucking door nail. Dead as. Bang, bang. Course I love this. How can’t I? They’ve really got my fucking […]

The return of Everett True | 50. Eight Rounds Rapid

This is is is great. Art Brut meets ATV, with a touch of the old Wilkos. With a smattering of all those (rather scary) old ruffians: The Inmates, Nine Below Zero, Dr Feelgood. All that crowd, but in 2014. You need to understand. I’m an Essex boy. Some of me grew up on this music. And aggression […]

The return of Everett True | 49. Violet Swells

A little diversion away from the main frame. I hope you don’t mind. A passing fancy, an object so slight and ephemeral that if you stand at the wrong angle you might not see it at all for fear of the sunlight glancing off its sides. Yes, music has sides. On one level, it’s deeply in […]

The return of Everett True | 48. FKA Twigs

You see, shit like this really puts me off artists. For New Year’s Eve 2013, Young Turks threw a special party in Tulum, Mexico. Here, FKA twigs performs Hide amidst Mayan ruins. I mean, how’s this any better than promoting your local Australian music festival with Native American imagery and saying it’s cos you’re drawing “inspiration from a […]

The return of Everett True | 47. Perera Elsewhere

I like this description. I think it must be from the press release, it’s popped up in so many reviews. The 12-track Everlast focuses on “the corruption of organized religion, gender discrimination and technological advancements leading to human over-dependence”. I like this a lot. I like the album even more. It has an unsettling, darkly […]

The return of Everett True | 46. Maid Of Ace

There was this. And while I can’t vouchsafe for this, I can’t deny that the occasional public acknowledgement – once every 10 years, right now – does buck me up for a few minutes. I sometimes think about what I’ll say when Everett dies. Only ‘cos I’m obsessed with death. Or more acutely, what comes after and what’s […]
