  1. Reminds me of the year that Caro Emerald was due to headline the Pyramid.
  2. No-one's ever listened to an actual electro-swing album.
  3. Every electro-swing gig is just an hour of the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B with dubstep wub wubs grafted on.
  4. Simz may be due to up her game yet again.
  5. Bah. Can't make the new date. Interesting that they've not just rolled it forward a whole year to coincide with G22.
  6. Let's not overlook the fact that Careless Whisper is also the tits.
  7. Reminds me of Courtney Love's claim that saxophones don't belong in rock'n'roll. Though I think she backtracked on that, presumably after someone played her some Little Richard.
  8. We love to remember when the Stones brought this king to the G:
  9. They're all John Coltrane ever did and he's the GOAT.
  10. Tracks like Everbody Hurts, Losing My Religion, End Of The World, Man On The Moon, etc are good songs - but so overplayed for so long that I still wouldn't actively seek them out. But they're not the full story. Automatic For The People may be emblematic of a certain type of serious and thoughtful "real" music, but its got some beautiful moments on it like Nightswimming and Find The River.
  11. I remember queuing up for tickets for the Monster tour at the Glasgow SECC and a few weeks ahead of release they played the album on a loop whilst we waited. Hoo boy
  12. You could make a pretty dope REM playlist by ditching all the grandstanding rock tracks (e.g. The One I Love) and focusing on their more wistful, minor key Byrdsy moments (Fall On Me, Don't Go Back To Rockville, Perfect Circle, Near Wild Heaven and so on).

  14. Still better than playing Flashbulb Eyes to be fair.
