Re: Anoracats!

Funnily enough what Dan's described right there is a very succinct account of how Saturday mornings usually play out. Mave plops onto my chest whilst I'm still in bed, nice as you like, full stretch, big eyes, purring winsomely and hoping for a massage. This she then gets, as I oscillate thumb and f...

Re: Sheffield, 9th Feb: Milky Wimpshake/Rosey PM/All Ashore!

Smiling all over this morning! What a splendid evening's entertainment that was. There are few more joyous affirmations of life than Tonieee in a band, and that was a great debut from All Ashore! last night. I can't remember who it was next to me (probably Penny) who reckoned the track where Tonieee...

It'd be especially nice if you stay up at the expense of the illegitimate franchise.
Losing to them three nights ago courtesy of a ninetysixth-minute winner was assuredly not part of the greater plan. Botheration, sod and toss.

Re: Anoracats!

I can't believe I've never posted any pictures of Mavis on here before now, considering she haunts about every post in three in my Facebook account. Half moggy, half Norwegian Forest Cat and 100% prima donna, Mavis is the last cat that my fiancee Linda's late father bred (she was the only kitten of ...

Re: Your Indietracks 2017 Wishlist

I tried to make a list with bands that - I think - have never played Indietracks so far... St. Christopher They played on the outdoor stage one afternoon in 2008. I think me and my brother made up about a quarter of the audience, and I felt sad. "Where's everybody f***ed off to?", queried Glenn Mel...

As well you should :-)

I just about stopped myself doing Clap Clap Clapclapclapclap Fish at the end of it, as that'd have overegged things.

I got Sleater-Kinney, a fortnight after finishing off reading Carrie Brownstein's autobiography. Subliminal, yet fitting.

Re: Pete Green!

That was an amazing set at Indietracks, good sir. Think moving the a cappella track further into the set worked just as well as you hoped it might. And I loved how the church swelled with the sound of the field recordings on occasion. Golden Goal caused some leaky eyes on our pew, I don't mind repor...

Ohhhhhhh, what a splendid Indietracks aperitif this was. Not sure how I'd managed not to embrace the sublime Maggie8 before now, in particular.

All these exiled Grimbarians among my indiepop acquaintances, and an Owl for a girlfriend too. What heady days are these.
