The following 15 songs are f**king great.

Lick My Click

May 15, 2006

Wink, North London's premiere monthly indie rock cabaret clubnight is back on the 9th of June; and from what I've heard about the opening night last month it should be a stormer. Watch the opening matches of the World Cup then get yourself down to the Buffalo Bar.

The best thing on the internet, TODAY. Funny French-accented cabbie BBC job applicant gets mistaken for a IT industry expert and stuck on BBC News 24, watch the video. (boingboing.net)

Ravi Shankar's offspring Norah Jones sticks on a wig and a big red Fender and gets awesome. (villageindian.com)

Learn little Lily's secret of good sampling, i.e. make it obscure. (stereogum.com)
