gin in teacups and leaves on the lawn

  • Ladies and gentlement, as promised... The 33 hottest bands in Canada! I think its an excellent list - especially since all 10 of my nominees made the cut. Respect to Matthew at i (heart) music for all his hard work in compiling the list.
  • Yessss! Pete Doherty flew to America on Saturday and checked himself into rehab at The Meadows clinic in Arizona where (ex-?)girlfriend Kate Moss was recently treated. He's choosing her over drugs! It must be love!
  • Pete Doherty is no longer #1 on the NME Cool List - Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys is. I think Liam Gallagher got robbed.
  • Idlewild have left their record label EMI/Parlophone. It should also be noted that frontman Roddy Woomble recently got hitched - which kinda saddens me because I used to have a massive crush on him (at least until I met him).
  • Franz Ferdinand play "imtimate gig" at children's hospital. Bless'em.
  • Thierry's famous. He appears in the new BRMC video right after the the first chorus and plays with his hair. It's a very pretty cameo.
  • Yesterday I came across this bad Morrissey comic and felt obligated to share.
  • Whoa! All my really really ridiculously good-looking girlfriends better apply to be Canada's Next Top Model!!!

    What's your Top 10 list of hottest Canadian Bands of 2005? And no matter what way you swing it, should Mr. Doherty make that list. ;-)

    BTW, I like your new photo.

    It's about time that fool go to rehab! But if he is in fact doing it for kate, that's so sweet :).He really needed the rehab anyway though...he has basically ruined his life (and I'm sure other people's lives) with his drug usage.

    I only know bands in that list in the top ten. Broken social scene deserved #1! If the unicorns still existed they would have to go on that list. Oh, and Stars are overrated. I hate the name arcti9c monkeys.

    I am kinda in that video too. I was behind this purdy brunette and next to a lovely blonde. So for 0.8969068408 of a sec you see my ear/cheek/temple/hair at certain points of the video.

    Random G bodyparts.

    mike - Ahah, thanks! My list was pretty basic and included the likes of Broken Social Scene, Arcade Fire, Death From Above 1979, Metric, The Dears, The Organ, Wolf Parade, The New Pornographers, Feist, and *gulp* Stars.

    Anonymous - He just wasn't how I thought he would be. He was alright - just not the personality I expected.

    Sarah - Ahh, its better late than never. And your right, Arctic Monkeys is a rubbish name.

    G - Ahh, I must've missed it!

    Good for Pete, but The Meadows is located Wickenburg AZ, a dull, dusty town, one that I would think would be more likely to drive someone deeper into drugs simply to escape boredom.
