- Found this out while standing in Tower Records (if you’re an employee of Tower Records reading this, I’m sorry I stand around in your shop whenever I’m waiting to do anything for any amount of time up to an hour) – for some reason I assume to be related to the release of The Sound of The Smiths, a shitload of Smiths 7″ singles have been re-released. I’m going to buy as many as I can find next time I’m in town.
- Kevin Barnes interview hangs in the ether – last Thursday, went to ghostly answering machine. Tonight, he answered, but very nicely asked to reschedule due to soundcheck. As the old saying goes: don’t try to do a phone interview with your heroes.
- Don’t go to the Analogue site, it’s afflicted with some sort of virus at the moment.
- The programme on TG4 with the Kerryman who talks to his paintings while he teaches you to paint is my favourite programme.
