Today's Post in Two Parts
Cathy Davey-Clean and Neat
As there are so many Mp3 blogs out there now, I'm really not sure if this might have been posted by someone else, obviously I had a look but didn't see her crop up anywhere-but you know I can miss these things so apologies if I'm lapsing. Cathy Davey is an Irish singer songwriter.....no......wait.........come back...............She's not armed with Dido lyrical angst muddle guns or Norah Jones keys of slow dull death, she's sprightly and sweet. A bit of folk under one arm whilst strumming some girly Britpop with the other Davey's sugary sweet vocals complete a catchy indie pop number that pleases with it's joyous simplicity. Buy single and the album here (price in Euros).
Gold Chains & Sue Cie-California Nites
This song is the kind of thing I thought Gold Chains was always aspiring to be but never quite got there. On his forthcoming album When the World Was Our Friend from which this is taken, he has collaborated with singer/producer Sue Cie. It works fair to good for the most part and the album is a grower but aside from this track I was still left feeling a bit unsatisfied and wanting to change little bits of the songs that would make them that much better. The album is released in October on the ever productive Kitty-Yo.
Tragedy in Songs Chapter 1
Jimmy Cross-I Want My Baby Back
I've decided to do some occasional posts on tragedy in songs, so here's part one. Really this song is pretty humorous but it definitely teeters on the edge of insanity. The bereaved Jimmy talks most of the way through and finishes the song, well...you have to listen to it to find that out. A true morbid tragedy rock 'n' roll classic.
Go to Sniggle.net the culture jammer's encyclopaedia, lot's to explore and the musical spoofing page is particularly entertaining
August bank holiday is always an excuse for people in the UK to get wreaked and completely over do it, to be honest I doubt it'll be any different for me what with friends birthday celebrations and the high possibility of attending the Cross Central festival.
Considering using Adwise through blogger but
a) I probably don't get enough hits for it to be worth it
b) Of the the people that do read my blog really I can't see many of them clicking ads.
c) Would I then be 'selling out'?
d) Not really likely the ads would be that relevent
1) I could really do with some cash to help with hosting
2) I could really do with some cash full stop.
Probably not then...
