I have a crush on the violinist with Slum Of Legs, pt 3 | Slum Of Legs

I’m gone.  Solid.  Stuck here, thinking.  Stuck here, thinking that Tamsin can articulate loneliness and hope and the thrill of the dance floor much better than I ever could.  Stuck here, entertained thoroughly by all the shenanigans going on on stage.  Stuck like glue.  Stuck here.  Of course it is sadder not to dance at […]

I have a crush on the violinist with Slum Of Legs, pt 2 | The Glug

I swear, it started like this. Only not so much so. I swear it.  I was not dreaming.  I was idly watching the lady on the merch table smiling, engaging – and this gang of MEN wander on stage, dressed in orange, with an Orange amp.  Six or seven of them there were, and a clown […]

I have a crush on the violinist with Slum Of Legs, pt 1 | The Wharves

Sometimes it’s nice not to have to use your imagination. This is my music.  Not just, of course.  There is a moment when I’m listening to the Wharves’ beautiful spellbound catlike three-part harmonies, entranced by the mirror ball rotating in the corner, noting the orange trainer laces, when I’m there.  Here.  Lost in music, caught […]

Not a real conversation | Micachu and the Shapes live

Hey. Hey. I enjoyed your show.  You rocked, the way only ladies can rock.  I’ve been waiting eight years to see you play live.  No disappointments there. Yeah?  Thanks man.   Loved the fact you only played for around – what was it? – 35 minutes.  No chance of boredom.  Loved the grungy minimalism.  You […]

The return of Everett True | 160. Jenny Hval

The return of Everett True | 160. Jenny Hval

When I operate at my fullest, my writing seduces musicians.  I have never stated this explicitly before but I have never had to write about Jenny Hval’s new album before.  It is the dance of seduction I am performing here, or one of the dances of seduction.  I understand the power of the printed word.  The […]

The return of Everett True | 159. Princess Chelsea

The return of Everett True | 159. Princess Chelsea

I arrive at this song from two directions. First, I research Princess Chelsea – a Kiwi lass I am vaguely familiar with – for a Guardian review.  I had been intrigued by her in the past, and I am a fraction surprised to note she did not reach the heady heights of this series with […]

The Collapse Board finally cracks | an explanation of why we are finally introducing star ratings

The Collapse Board finally cracks | an explanation of why we are finally introducing star ratings

By the Collapse Board Editors (except Lee Adcock, because no one asked her – but that’s OK, I mean she’s not that important anyway) It was inevitable, looking back on it. Despite the protestations from certain staff members here at Collapse Board, and lines such as The problem is that ratings give readers an excuse not […]

The return of Everett True | 158. Membranes

The return of Everett True | 158. Membranes

You see, some of us still remember the secret history of the 1980s. Not me. Most of it is blinding white light followed by blinding white light followed explosions of noise followed by the sound of puke splattering onto the pavement from the side of a taxi followed by useless imagination followed by a stage […]
