Re: Hi from a relative Indiepop newcomer and let's play a ga

The CD86 comp from 2006 compiled by Bob Stanley got me deeper into that era. Truckload Of Trouble - Pastels Last Match - Aislers Set With Love From The Hit Parade Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything - The School Only Ugly People Smoke - Nixon Let's Get Out Of This Country - Camera Obscura U...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

Oh I like Stevie's songs. Jonathan David is indeed one of B&S' best and I also love Perfect Couples and I'm Not Living In The Real World. SM wrote all my least favourite B&S songs but all my favourites too.

Re: Belle and Sebastian

Well, my fears about the Somerset House playlist were misplaced. State I Am In, Stars of Track and Field, Seeing Other People, Get Me Away From Here, A Century of Elvis. Only one DCW song, DCW itself and some other stuff not done live often - Mornington Crescent, We Are The Sleepyheads. And the dan...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

Oh come on, If She Wanks Me is a million times worse than Beyond The Sunrise. ISWM is so bland it barely exists but still manages to annoy the hell out of me. I like Beyond The Sunrise, always have. What's there to dislike about it?! The deep vocals? I also like Roy Walker. I will never understand w...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

Anyone else go to the Hydro on Friday night? Absolutely no need for the interpretive dance or two of the worst songs from their worst album (If She Wanks Me and If You Ever Find Yourself Caught In Christianity) but otherwise beezer!

Re: Belle and Sebastian

Perfect Couples has always been one of my favs on the album. Talking Heads is a fair comparison.

Re: Belle and Sebastian

That is a great set. Much better than the Belfast Write About Love tourdate. They were still playing Step Into My Orifice on that tour, shudder. It's like no one told them it fucking sucks.

Little My!

Cardiff's 11 piece twee pop heroes lead by Harri from The School played a wonderful reunion last Sunday at Wales Goes Pop! Their first show since their 2010 split. They're now raising funds to produce an album. You should all contribute because they're awesome... https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/l...

Re: Records of 2015

Belle & Sebastian are definitely my favourite of the year so far. It's so good to be excited about them again.

wait, what? http://pitchfork.com/news/58777-franz-ferdinand-and-sparks-form-supergroup-ffs/ Haha, yeah! I think it's going to be great. It'll give Ron and Russ an excuse to 'rock' out for the first time in ages too. I saw Sparks in LA last month and Alex Kapranos joined them onstage to sing their '...

Re: Wales Goes Pop! 2015!

Liz WGP did a tally and, incredibly, 30 out of 31 of the acts playing Wales Goes Pop! this year have female members! Or, if you count Thomas Truax's homemade female-personified drum machine 'Sister Spinster', it's a full house! Up ye Reading!

Re: Wales Goes Pop! 2015!

Totally forgot to say that WGP! is in a beautiful converted church in Cardiff called The Gate. Honestly one of the best venues I've ever been to.

I'm DJing with my partner in crime Liz School on the last night too. It's going to be amazing.

Re: Belle and Sebastian

*signs up to Team Stay Loose* I'm with you on that. I haven't listened to the new album at all, except for a couple of chance hearings of one song. I'll buy it when I get paid though! I'm half tempted by that Hydro show but I can't get my head around the concept. What's the deal with the Hydro? Is ...
