    I spent most of the weekend listening to The Gutter Twins who were streaming their album on myspace. Greg Dulli (afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers) and Mark Lanegan, cracking. Now I'm champing at the bit for the cd to arrive.

    I'm sat up feeling violently ill and staring at two pills I have to take and know they'll probably make me feel worse. You may think this makes me not the happiest bunny in the world. However, you would be wrong, because it's impossible to be pissed off when you've found Kermit the Frog singing NIN/Cash's Hurt on youtube.

    This is why the internet exists.

    Saw Portico play last week. Lyn Heineman's musical writing skittles make me happy. They released their last album not six months ago and have almost another fully formed/tightened album going. Considering they lost a guitarist in that time, I find it pretty impressive.

    I hear Holy Fuck is even better live, apparently some of their equipment caught fire before their set in Vancouver and it didn't stop them one bit.

    K'Naan - The Dusty Foot Philosopher always makes me happy.

    It was love at first listen.

    Concurrent with the brilliant "Sad Kermit" song above, today was lots of work at the computer with NIN playing, finally getting to digest GHOSTS I-IV and "Year Zero Remixed".
    Also:
    Bill Nelson: "The Love That Whirls (Diary of a Thinking Heart)": If you like your old school synthpop with feeling and imagery, it don't get much better than this.

    @Ben - That's pretty impressive. Of course, it would have been even more impressive if they'd kept playing while their equipment caught fire on stage ... then again, perhaps that's already been done.

    see: I DONT GIVE A FUCK or THE MONOTONIX. their show together in phoenix last november involved much fire, fireworks, exploding beers and drums being played while still being torn apart and thrown through the crowd. it was frightening and some off the most fun i had last year at the same time.
