Selfish Cunt in good song shocker
Selfish Cunt-Authority Confrontation
Following the Pete Doherty-Selfish Cunt debacle it comes as no surprise that they, the cunt (as they shall from herein be called), have released a new single. It's abrasive, loud and cocky but at least its listenable this time, yeah 'Britain is Shit' got lots of old saggy journalists salivating over how wonderfully shouty and anti-establishment it was, but it should have been renamed 'Britain is shit so you won't mind if our song is too'. This however is something more, better, I mean they're still not the cultural in your face revolutionary bastards they think they are. But this has raw energy, snot spitting and plenty of attitude even if it's occasionally misplaced. It might also explain the cunt's obvious dislike of Mr. Doherty, the song including the lines begging on my streets, that is not allowed, however I might have got that all mixed up, Doherty's not a street urchin is he?. Buy it here.
The Customers-The Customer is King
I had difficulty deciding which tracks to post from this lot and even after posting 3 I still felt unsure that I chose the right ones. Anyway I know these guys and two of them lived with my ex while we were all at uni. I haven't seen them for a while because I moved up from sunny Brighton a few months ago. I actually only know those two, but as a whole they're a clever bunch of guys. Joe the drummer is a really talented young man, he has a electronic side project and spends so much time just creating stuff. The band rotate between three singers which helps to keep the sound fresh, it's also the reason I wanted to post more than one track. There is quite a bit of variation in this band which isn't to say that they haven't found their feet yet just that they're proficient in plenty of styles. The tracks are available to download from their website along with a generous amount of rotating others. They also released an EP in 2003 called Days For Hoisting Flags on Government Buildings which I highly recommend you buy here.
I have some sign-ups but there's still plenty o' room at the back
Crayola crayon colour cd project
Basically the idea is that I send a CDRW to someone it will have one song and a custom cover with a drawing in my favourite crayola crayon colour. The person it is sent to then adds a track to the CD and their own drawing on the cover in their favourite Crayola crayon colour and sends it on the next person on the list and so on, eventually the CD and complete cover comes back to me, I then send everyone who took part a copy of the CD and complete cover art. So you need to have a CD writer and the will to take part in a nice little snail mail project Here is a collection of the colours of the crayons to give you an idea. If anyone fancys it leave a comment or drop me a line at zzz.www at gmail.com. Inspiration taken from the projects that go on at Nervousness.
