Swish Blog Playlist Mix 13-09-05

September 13, 2005

Last night I went to an Artrocker night at The Garage and watched Twisted Charm (Nathan's backcombed hair is getting out of control), Black Wire (Dan gets prettier every day... Si is obviously starting to think that he's in Vincent Vincent & The Villains) and Test Icicles (who, whilst playing Boa vs. Python exclaimed "anyone who bought this single is a retard!"); it was amazing...

The Test Icicles album is out soon, and I was lucky enough to get a 5-track sampler thingy of which the first track in this week's mix, Pull The Lever, is from.

3. London Sky Tonight - The Bridge Gang

Yeah! Have you seen them live? I saw them at Metro club two weeks ago. Thought they were quite alright!

Gosh! Arcade Fire cover a YYYs song? Cool! Will listen to the weekly playlist tonight. I'm not able to listen at work. :)

So do you live in London Nicole, or were you just visiting? I check out your blog often, but obviously don't understand a word of it.

hope you enjoy the mix...

Just visiting. Will hopefully move to London at the end of October.

Great! London is a really cool place to live once you're used to how busy it is. I extend a big bloggers welcome.

:-) If everything goes as planned I might be in London from 24th/25th October. I hope I will... I would really want to go to that Adventures In The Beetroot Field festival at the end of October. Especially the one on Saturday at Koko in Camden.

2. I am now obsessed with this song.
13. Sounds a bit like they copied and pasted 'Catch It' rather than going to the studio as said to record the riffs and screams.
14. Thank you! Optimo played this followed by Led Zepplin's 'When the Levee Breaks' a couple Sunday's ago, but I didn't know it was real.
15. Never realised how much she sounds like David Bowie

Me too! It's such a catchy song.

@ http://www.myspace.com/goodshoes are three more of their catchy songs.

that's exactly what they've done i'm sure, it's exactly the same massive bass sound...

And Nicole (and Nilina if you're interested) you can get loads more Good Shoes stuff here
(if you can get the links to work - it's always broke!)

I'm impatient. When the next playlist coming out?

 chris says:

was meant to do it on wednesday but i forgot. looks like it'll have to be tomorrow now - don't fret, it will arrive!

Last night Helenium and I got Rooster and LoveBites shoes for Popstar Feets, woo!

September 23, 2005 11:02 AM
 Nilina says:

Oh no! People are acknowledging LoveBites existance! I'm scared!

September 23, 2005 12:21 PM
 chris says:

LoveBites rock! Helen and I saw them last night and they were really cool; I don't mind a bit of cheese every now and again - even polished media-trained island records cheese - AND they play their own instruments!

 Nicole says:

This is probably not the right place to ask this, but.... Chris (or someone else), do you know where I can get 'Adventures In The Beetroot Field festival' tickets. No one seems to know. :(

September 30, 2005 11:36 AM
 chris says:

Their website http://www.adventuresinthebeetrootfield.com/ has this phone number on it for enquiries/bookings 07802 947253. Try that I reckon. x
