It really is terribly exciting. I can't even imagine what a Helen Love live show would be like. Over 10 years since the last one, blimey. I hope this encourages them/her to do more shows.

i couldn't really get on with that europoppy vibe they went for on (the majority of ) the last album

Debbie Loves Joey is ace though, obv

awww, thank you, hopefully that wont be necessary but that's very nice of you. My good lady wife's brother (my brother in law, or Steve as I call him) is coming round at some point this week and he's all about the "downloads" even thgouh he's older than me, so hopefully he'll do some magic in that regard. I really should take notice one day when he's downloading stuff, but if I started downloading music where would it end?

has anyone got it yet?

On a side note and Indietracks related, everybody knows it's not the done thing to wear the t-shirt of the band you're going to see (at a festival its acceptable to wear the shirt of the band you're seeing on the day they're not playing, not that I need to explain that to anyone) but I still have one of the Helen Love temporary tattoos from... 10 years ago? when Damaged were going to do a singles box set which didn't end up happening, whenever that was? is it bad form to wear the temporary tattoo of the band you're going to see?

You're not supposed to wear a t-shirt of the band you're going to see? Who makes up these stupid rules?

so a tattoo is acceptable then? I see.

obviously not a real tattoo, it's not Rocket From the Crypt.

now I just have to find it. I know it's in a 7" sleeve, but which one is anybodys guess. hopefully it's a Helen Love one, that would make it slightly easier.

** Blimey, I didn't know I was going to cause such a fuss with that band t-shirt thing. I was just using it as an excuse to show off about how I've had the self discipline to save my last tattoo for that long. sorry, didn't mean to offend anybody **

ATOMIIIIIIIIIIIIC! New Helen Love single on Elefant Records, what do you think about it?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LolWNDrZUm8

I like it, no doubt about it, but I miss the energy of songs like Happyhardcore, Bigbig kiss or all that... but it's nice, in it's way : )

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM AT INDIETRACKS!




Don't tell your mum and I won't tell my dad

That when we are together it all goes atomic

Just take my hand cos they won't understand that

When we are together, our world turns atomic

Always room to change a bit,we enjoyed making it and that's the main thing,you'll have to wait for the next record for some pop punk action.actually PUNK action,as the Stick It album we canned sounds really rather cool now,very Lo fi and fast.

the albums up for pre order now on Elefant. do I pre order it and hope it comes before Indietracks so I can know the songs or do I wait and buy it from the merch tent as it probably wont get here in time anyway? its a tricky one, I don't want to risk missing out on a tasty slab of white vinyl (its limited so might sell out if I don't get my skates on) but obviously buying a record in cash off a real life person always feels somewhat better than paying through paypal. then again, if I buy at at the tracks I''ll have to worry about carrying it round with me all day, making sure it doesn't get too hot, or the corner of the sleeve gets bent... I think I've answered my own question there.

ORDERED!!!! I'm rather excited now.
