A new genre of music | the PC tribute band

A new genre of music | the PC tribute band

Thanks to Wallace Wylie for the idea. Here’s his starter. The PC Led Zeppelin. Sample lyric: “Hey hey mama said the way you move/Puts me in the mood for some consensual sex.” “Communication breakdown, it’s always the same. Our gender definitions , as enforced by the capitalist/patriarchal system, make true communication impossible and only by rejecting these narrow […]

Name and shame | The great bands that should never have reformed

Name and shame | The great bands that should never have reformed

This line. It might be thin, so thin that it can’t be seen by the human eye so I can only give you a representation, but it exists – believe you me. Here. Here’s a reminder. OK. Let’s get on with the chart. Reminder: to qualify, the band needs to have been great in the first […]

It’s a thin line | Bands that should never have reformed vs Great bands that have returned great

It’s a thin line | Bands that should never have reformed vs Great bands that have returned great

Here’s the line. It’s thin. Above it we find bands like Mission Of Burma, The Go-Betweens and Sleater-Kinney. (Wire are momentarily disqualified for not really splitting.) Below it, we find bands like The Sex Pistols, Pixies and Swervedriver. Like this. Got the idea? Good. Now we move on to a more extended pie chart. As Lucy Cage […]

Fevered Dreams – Mike Turner’s Top 10 Albums of 2014

Fevered Dreams  – Mike Turner’s Top 10 Albums of 2014

Above: Witching Waves @ the Hello Goodbye Show. I had been working on this year end list for what seems like weeks. I’d been fighting off this nasty bug since Thanksgiving. It finally caught up with me and I spent what seems like ages in a fevered state so I can’t really feel too bad if […]

Crayon – Brick Factory (HHBTM)

Crayon – Brick Factory (HHBTM)

I regret not knowing about so much music when I was growing up. For instance – where was Kraftwerk when I was younger, when I could wander down the Autobahn and invent some elaborate fantasy plot on the spot? Why did I never tap into the teenage rebellion of Nirvana (In Utero, to be exact) […]

Mike Turner’s 2014 Mid-Year Top Ten

Mike Turner’s 2014 Mid-Year Top Ten

2014 has been a super busy year for me and I kinda stopped following as much of what was going on and the up and coming buzz bands than in years past. My top ten picks of 2014 seems to be made up of older bands making a return or bands that just were just […]

A review of the latest ‘Pixies’ album, based only on its title

A review of the latest ‘Pixies’ album, based only on its title

First, a disclaimer. I haven’t listened to any new ‘Pixies’ material – or even seen any pictures of their artwork/line-ups – since I saw their godawful reunion show at Brixton Academy in 2004, and watched the godawful, money-grabbing and dispiriting tour documentary that came out around the same time. Next, the title. Indie Cindy. Finally, the review. Folk […]

Song of the Day #690 – Cancers

Song of the Day #690 – Cancers

Ella invited me to the show. She found me as many people do – on Facebook, via a mutual friend. (Aside – this is also how I met my current landlord when my previous landlady, a psychotic control freak, was about to kick me out. Through the same mutual friend, in fact. I owe said […]

The Friday Afternoon Playlist, 28.03.2014

The week’s big news, I mean other than Collapse Board somehow being overlooked in the list of the 100 most influential music blogs, was Friday’s surprise announcement that Kate Bush was playing her first live shows since 1979. AND BASICALLY NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BECAUSE I’M SEEING KATE BUSH IN AUGUST It’s the most indulgent and […]

Introducing: Screamfeeder (Singles and More 1992-2004)

Introducing: Screamfeeder (Singles and More 1992-2004)

Well, last week, Everett True tackled the Dirty Jeans comp as well – and GUESS WHAT? Though his was inevitably meatier with context, our two reviews basically agree on two points – a) roughly a third of that collection is dry derivative shit, and b) there just weren’t enough chicks represented. So, guys, I’m pleased […]
