So Black Midi are Brit School alumni along with Katie Melua, Jessie J and The Feeling.

This definitely means Kev is a Katie Melua fan.


Don't forget King Krule.

Katie Melua is bloody lovely, aswell.



See, really lovely.

Fucking yes, the Black Midi debut album is fucking immense. I was apprehensive beforehand to see what they would do, lot's of talk of them making it sound completely different to the live gigs etc.. and the two singles released just prior, were definitely a bit more pared back compared to the live versions, I did however grow to love those arrangements. But the album is a tour-de-force and they (along with producer Dan Carey) have managed to keep the intensity of the live gigs but also add enough nuance for it to work as a recorded piece. They kept the two digitial singles off it (Crow's Perch and Talking Heads), which I think make sense and they re-recorded the earlier vinyl only releases (Bmbmbm & Speedway) and both versions are superior to the older ones.

Took a couple of listens to lock in, there's a lot going on, but I love it.

Yeah I love it. Instantly grabbed me but also clearly has so much more to offer with repeated listens. Could be an album of the year contender.

Just imagine what they'd sound like if they'd ever heard LCD Soundsystem!

I quite liked the Penelope Islands lp too. Was surprised to see they're English though as its a pretty American sound.

Quite like what I've heard so far from Working Men's Club. Nothing new but decent post punk in the vein of Gang of Four and Joy Division. Hoping to catch the live at Latitude at the weekend.

I saw them at Great Escape earlier in the year, pretty rough around the edges and the stage was absolutely tiny, but definitely something interesting, worth a watch, definitely.

That new Black Country, New Road single ('Sunglasses') is something else. I've had it on repeat for most of the day. Love the singers vocals.

Never heard of 'em.  Gave that a listen and it's great.  A bit mad, but really good.

Oh yeah, a while back I transcribed all the lyrics because i'm a sad geek. Enjoy!

Good Night
During what was probably the longest two months of my life, after a near death experience, I could not sleep. I was on edge at all times and the only thing that kept me going, was ‘Saw 2’.
My cat died three months ago at seventeen years old, when this song plays I can remember the good old days when I was a kid, how we’d play together with my cat at home alone with my brother, and the good days I had with her, good night sweet princess.
She said have you ever spat cum onto the carpet of a travel lodge?
Unwanted oils. I keep fit running after my kids.
Imagine being able to stack the odds of lasting love entirely in your favour.
How dare you, I’m the best at what I do, how fucking dare you?
Don’t touch me, you stole my childhood CD’s you fuck.
I need you all to shut up, I’m going through a tough time.
Some bitch with a plaster on her face is laughing at me?!
(Good Night)
Friday nights in 91/92 getting the 6:15 Thameslink from Farringdon to Leatherhead with this on my walkman. This songs makes me remember of being at my Grandparents house and the swing I had in the back yard, I must have been 3 or 4 years old.
Sometimes there’s also a particular smell that activates this memory for me, something like the smell of rain on thundery days. Anyway, I remember swinging for hours, trying to reach higher and higher and felt like the king of the universe, everything was so easy, everyone was alive and they looked so happy.
I miss my Grandmother.

New Job
Fa Fa Fa x3
You were listening to me talk about making art and you seemed really interested and then we both went to the toilet and then I came back and you were leaving, I thought you liked me but maybe I was just a captive audience? You did seem a bit bored when I was talking. You had a birthday party and you didn’t invite me and I feel so hurt.
Fa Fa Fa.. Jimmy and Olga, love forever, Fa Fa Fa. Fa Fa Fa.
No, no mate, it’s not that kind of party, we’ve got to get to know each other. What’s your favourite book Steve? That’s a good question, I think it’d be the Count of Monte Cristo.
Can we walk on the tracks? No, no, people can’t walk on the tracks, only trains can walk on the tracks. Who are they? They’re work men fixing them, sometimes they get broken.
Fa Fa Fa.. Jimmy and Olga, love forever, Fa Fa Fa.
Fa Fa Fa.. Jimmy and Olga, love forever, Fa Fa Fa.
The longer we go on like this, the more firm the dinner will be, Paula. You found a pretty plastic indicator lens on the wall to a flat, you give it to me as a gift, but oh yeah, you collect metal, not plastic, it’s me who collects plastic. It wasn’t a snake after all, phew, it was a pile of mushrooms growing in the shape of a snake.

Magic of Meghan
I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly. This beautiful women, tripped and fell into my life.
All the stars were aligned, it’s kept the world gripped, it was just an amazing surprise.
You got engaged on the day I moved out, it’s ok! She’s a smasher, perfectly suited to the role.
Messages from the public, ‘thank you for what you’re doing, we love you, you’re just what England needs, you’re going to change us’.
Whoop!
He’s like the cat that got the cream, he’s marrying for love, it doesn’t matter. She placed a perfectly manicured hand on his chest, an instant yes.
Whoop!
Never has one outfit been designed to send so many messages.
Earrings to empower woman. A bag that helps charity, jeans made in Wales.
Cruelty free coat, with the magic of Meghan.
I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly. This beautiful women, tripped and fell into my life.
All the stars were aligned, it’s kept the world gripped, it was just an amazing surprise.
S’ok! It doesn’t matter.

Traditional Fish
News and mags. Fruits and Veg. Beers and Wines. Pay point.
Cash point, help point, Christmas tree recycling point.
Wine & mags, bakers only past this point.
Westminster Bridge Road (Westminster Bridge Road).
Traditional Fish bar, chicken and ribs.
Bus pass, news and magazine. International calling card
Chicken burger Pizza, phone cards, greetings cards.
Seafood meats and peticare human hair wigs.
Dining set, beds and wardrobes.
Newspapers, magazine. Its Phil to the rescue as Kathy meets her worst nightmare.
Who’s the Bride of Britain? Michelle blasts Mark.
I was shot in the head by my kid. Errrr… Errrr. hmmpff..

Phone Scam
She said she’d asked twenty girls already, I feel really horrible, but also, that she doesn’t have the right to scream at me in my face.
She said I was a horrible cunt. She said I was a bastard,
She screamed and screamed ‘I don’t want to touch it’
Also, no one seemed to be very bothered by the fact that she was screaming at me.
I had the feeling that what she was saying was a script.

She said I was a horrible cunt. She said I was a dickhead,
She screamed and screamed ‘I don’t want to touch it’
I don’t wanna touch it x3
I never said she did wanna touch it.
She said I was a horrible cunt. She said I was a dickhead,
She screamed and screamed ‘I don’t want to touch it’
I had my phone out, she knew I had a phone and moved on to ask me to use the phone very quickly.
I felt vulnerable to her stealing it, I felt very vulnerable that it was some kind of scam.
Because I’ve been conned before.

Conversation
Ring ring.. ring ring.. ring ring.. hello..
I can only live in isolation, fast and furious live.
Followed by another porn account on Instagram.
Am I on a date right now? Is this a date?
I come across strange, you say ‘be yourself, be yourself’.
Better find myself, people think I’m strange.
Jokes don’t land, people just say ‘what’s that?’, ‘Pardon?’
Mmmmm
Brrrrpp Brrppp.. Brrrppp Brrrpp
Hello.. oh hey.. yeah… sure yeah.. that would be nice.. yeah definitely.. see ya then… byyyyyeeee..

Just giving the Dry Cleaning EP a listen now. I know I slagged them off in either this thread or maybe another one, but I'm enjoying it so far. However, the singer sounds like an absolute melt.
