Their Loss

…seriously, it’s rilly good.


We’re all in this together

February 21, 2011

After today’s news that the Tories are about to privatise everything, I did a little mixtape to cheer myself up.

We’re all in this together.

My votes for this year’s Christmas Number 1

December 11, 2010

That’s what happens now, right? We all pick a song and get it to number one? Well, I vote for any a these.

(I realise there’s competition.)

Thanks to everyone who brought these bands to my attention (including HMV Oxford Street staff for PVT and Gavin for Cloud Nothings!)

Come back, Leos Carax.


My Memory Tape (incomplete, like my memory)

September 5, 2010

I did the lovely Lauren Laverne’s Memory Tapes segment on Friday and I promised I’d turn it into a Spotify playlist. So here it is!

(Spotify didn’t have the Baby Bird, Mary Margaret O’Hara or Go-Betweens track, and I had the second Prefab Sprout number in there by mistake.)
