Calling all Morrissey fans (urgent help needed) [17 Feb 2007|06:08pm]

Last chance to download Morrissey into the charts

As some of you may know Morrissey fans over at Morrissey–solo.com have been organizing a campaign to try and get a track from Morrissey’s latest album ‘Ringleader of the tormentors’, the beautifully haunting, ‘Life is a Pigsty’ into the charts.

We’ve been downloading ‘Life is a Pigsty’ all this week but time is running out and for this to work we need more people to get involved.

So please if you have a spare 79p please download ‘Life is a pigsty’ and help us make this dream a reality.

The chart countdown begins at 4pm on Sunday so there’s less than 24 hours left.

We need one final effort from everyone. If you haven’t downloaded ‘Pigsty’ yet then please do and if you already have, and can please download it again.

Non-uk fans can also take part. For more information go to http://www.getmozinthecharts.vze.com/

Please do all you can to help? Your hero needs you

Please, Please, Please let us get what we want this time. (You see what I did there)

Thank you

Pigsty video

home-recorded sad bastard cover of regina spektor's "fidelity"

[18 Sep 2006|12:17am]

Ожидал услышать в клубе ОДИН что-нибудь попреличней. Babyshambers, Distroer, Gost Digital и подобные надутые полиэтеленовые пакеты не то. Молодые мальчики в узких джинсах отплясывали, нанюхавшись кокаина, деньги на который выпросили у родителей. Пит Догерти может и молодец. но что не сделаешь когда у тебя на это все возможности. думаю через пару месяцев Один превратися в такое же заведение как и новус и т.п. может даже пропадет весь этот пофос. Услышу я наконец Sonic Youth черт его подери.

My obvious love for the Machines [23 Aug 2006|08:47pm]

Okay, I want to know if there are any Secret Machines fans here. I have been listening to them for a while now and I'm just continually amazed by them. I saw them in NY at the Hiro Ballroom in April. They were on a circular stage (or what they call "in the round") surrounded by the audience. It was unique- it felt like I was watching some of my friends play music (except awesome). And the crowd seemed friendlier than usual too. If I had to list the best modern bands these guys would have to be in the top ten.

If there are any fans out there, then you've got to see them this fall, they are playing nothing but 'in the round' shows. I'm seeing them when they come to New York.

If you don't know their music then you should definitely check them out. They have some songs up on Myspace.

Sufjan Stevens - The Avalanche [20 Jul 2006|10:05pm]

Oh my god, another album of extraordinary depth and talent. Can this man do no wrong? He throws out a outakes and extras album and even this pisses all over the competition. Think you dont need three alternative versions of Chicago? Well think again, you do. If you are not familiar with his work I would highly recommend that you give him a go and if you have but dont yet have The Avalance, buy it NOW.

Begging note : I didnt manage to get tickets for the tour, if anyone has spare (for any date) or knows where I can get one PLEASE let me know.
