Anyone listen to Maximo Park?...I think they are awesome. I can't get enough of their album. And Paul Smith is the hyper version of Jarvis Cocker- Im sure. They are amazing live to. I actually met the Paul Smith, hes a top bloke

suede fanclub t-shirt for sale [19 Jan 2006|03:47pm]

I was hoping a fellow Suede fan might find some joy in this unworn original vintage Suede fanclub t-shirt.
EDIT: Size Large

I bought it through the Suede Information Service (remember them?) last century but never had the chance to wear it.

I was thinking of putting it on ebay but wanted to gauge interest from the fans.

Contact me with an offer if you are interested and celebrate your love and poison for the Suede that is no more!

The Weird Sisters [13 Jan 2006|02:29pm]

[ mood | calm ]

My Harry Potter mention of Ian Brown also brought up Jarvis and Johnny Greenwood in Goblet of Fire.
They're apart of the band, The Weird Sisters and Jarvis wrote three songs (Which in my opinion, are brilliant, I love them, they're my most played songs in iTunes).

If you wanna find these songs without buying the soundtrack, they're called:
'Do The Hippogriff'
'This is the Night'
'Magic Works'

Try pairing them with Jarvis Cocker, Harry Potter, Goblet of Fire, Johnny Greenwood or the Weird Sisters for keywords and they should come up. The song title + Goblet of Fire or Harry Potter seems to work best, at least if you're using Limewire.

Just thought I'd mention it if any Jarvis fans that don't have them are interested because they're fun songs.

PS: I'd upload them myself, but I'm dial up that is slow even for dial up because Broadband isn't available in my area *stabs Telstra*

She's a 20th Century Girl. [12 Jan 2006|04:48pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

WHOA. I think I may have actually spasmed or the like when I found this community, I was so damn excited.
I've always been a Brit Music fan, but it became an obsession recently when I read 'The Last Party' by John Harris (Anyone else read it?). It's focus is Blur and Oasis, but also Pulp, Suede and Elastica. There's a bit of Sleeper, Menswear, Happy Mondays, Stone Roses (The whole Acid House era to give you an idea of what the 90s were beginning as. It's the whole Britpop scene and it's involvment with British politics), The Smiths, New Order, Joy Division... There's more I can't remember I'm sure.

A LOT of Alan McGee who's now at Rogue Trade working with the likes of The Libertines so also if you're interested in him as well...

Drugs, sex, rock 'n' roll and politics. Really. Good. Book.

Pulp, Blur and Oasis have deep sentimental value because I grew up on Pulp and Blur (The earliest music video I ever remember seeing is 'Country House') and 'Wonderwall' is song that connects me to the people I used to hang out with. At one party we all say around drinking, someone whipped out a guitar and we all sand 'Wonderwall' and 'Buffalo Soldier' (Lol not that Bob Marley has much to do with this community). Also Oasis were my first ever paid for live band (The real first being Dandy Warhols, which was free), which was an brilliant show by the way, even with "side impeded view" seats.

I idolise Damon Albarn, I think he is such an amazing musician (Anyone seen Ravenous? The music for that was brilliant).

So yep, just an intro post really. Hi!

PS: Any Harry Potter fans here? In Prisoner of Azkaban, y'know that guy sitting down reading a Stephen Hawking book, twirling a teaspoon around with his finger absent mindedly? It's Ian Brown!

Misshapes [17 Sep 2005|02:23pm]

I always giggle during "Misshapes" because I think Jarvis is saying "we want cheese balls! we want cheese scones!" instead of "we won't use guns/bombs"-

And then during "I-Spy" where he's bantering about how he's imagining a plaque placed above the place where he first touched a girl's chest, I picture some girl walking around with a big plaque bolted to her neck.

Umm, hi.

so this may seem a little strange, but does anyone have that photo of brett anderson where's he's smacking himself on the bum?

it's for ...err.. a friend. i swear.

i would be extremely grateful. i need it to prove that brett anderson is actually more feminine than most females (in the early 90's, anyway).

Art Brut Battle of the Franchises Vol.I

Headlining THE ROCKS
+ Space Peacocks
+ The Sam Assortment
+ The Criminal Housewives
+ LeboviciAB84
+ DJs Pom Pom and Confetti Girls
+ DJ Gertcha

16th September, The Luminaire, 311 High Road, Kilburn (Kilburn tube, Jubilee Line) Check out www.theluminaire.co.uk for a map and more information. The Rocks headline the first of these Art Brut Franchise gigs compered by Xfm's Marsha Shandur, supporting brave new artists from the Art Brut forum. The first of many events aimed at bringing these talented youths into the limelight. The Rocks bring their gritty London sweat-rock, ‘If the Strokes were made of cheese, you'd only have to mention a grater and they'd cry. The Rocks , conversely, would wiggle and squirm, wail like Jagger, and fight the grater tooth and nail. They'd lose. But they'd lose like naked writhing beasts. Which we think is important.’ The Fly, to the first of these indie rock extravanganzas and with this headline act (fresh from their recent torrent of London gigs, including Koko and The Barfly), not to mention a 2am club night featuring Pom Pom and the Confetti Girls, the evening promises to be a gig you will never forget. Each of the four Franchise bands, are talented, raw and vibrant in their own right, spurred on by the success of their friends and supporters Art Brut. Also be ready for a secret special guest band (providing some Reef but no Gas) to be revealed on the night. To celebrate the birth of this red hot new indie night, £3 guestlist tickets can be obtained by e-mailing full names to pompompromotions@gmail.com. Be prepared to rock... hard - Doors 8.00. £5/£3 via guestlist, e-mail name to pompompromotions@gmail.com

GIVEAWAY Dead 60s, Sweet and Tender Hooligans in Los Angeles [04 Aug 2005|11:53am]

Friday, August 5; 9 PM; 21+
The Dead 60s, Drunk Horse, Morningwood @ Spaceland (1717 Silverlake Blvd, Los Angeles, 90026)

Trivia Question: British band The Dead 60s have opened for what legendary compatriot, whose work has spawned many a cover and tribute band, including one that has a forthcoming appearance at Spaceland?

“We’re not rejecting the traditional Liverpool sound” explains Charlie. “We’re just tapping into a different kind of history, which is just as relevant. It makes sense to us to sing about things people can relate to their own lives, like buildings getting knocked down to be replaced by car parks and the effect it has. Or how bad new towns are, and how difficult it is to get out of them and create your own life. It’s the sound of growing up surrounded by concrete, in a city where it’s always pissing down with rain…” --Paul Moody

Email your answer along with your first and last name to contest@spaceland.tv by noon on Friday, August 5th. Enter “Dead 60s giveway” in the subject line. The fifth person with the correct answer will be put on the list for the show. THIS SHOW SOLD OUT ONLINE, BUT A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIX WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR THE DAY OF SHOW.

Saturday, August 6; 9 PM; 21+
The Sweet and Tender Hooligans, The High Dials @ Spaceland (1717 Silverlake Blvd., Los Angeles, 90026)

Trivia Question: What sixties pop star sings on The Smiths’ songs “Hand in Glove”?

“Formed in 1992, the Sweet & Tender Hooligans have gained local and international attention. The band also received recognition as “Best Cover Band in Los Angeles” in the L.A. Weekly’s “Best of 2003” issue. Sweet & Tender Hooligans have also gained recognition by Morrissey himself, when he kicked off his 1999-2000 “Oye Esteban” world tour by announcing “Hello, we are the Sweet & Tender Hooligans” at his first show in Tempe, Arizona.”

Email your answer along with your first and last name to contest@spaceland.tv by noon on Friday, August 6. Enter “Sweet and Tender Hooligans giveaway” in your subject line. The first and fourth person with the correct answer will be put on the list for the show.
