britpop nostalgia day

  • Happy Birthday to the still oh-so-very-sexy Damon Albarn.
  • Pete Doherty admitted guilt to seven counts of drug posession in court this morning.
  • Mike Skinner (The Streets) feels bad for stealing a giant stuffed tiger in Germany.
  • Stream Morrissey's new album 'Ringleader Of The Tormentors' on MySpace.
  • Download Dirty Pretty Things' "You Fucking Love It" over at Stereogum.
  • Oh Cerys Matthews I still love you after all those years. So thrilled she's back. Remember when she looked like this? Sigh.
  • The Hype Machine, an MP3 aggregator (that Thierry introduced me to last night), is awesome. It helped me rediscover one of my favourite teen angst songs - appropriately titled "Teenage Angst" by Placebo.
  • The Smiths/Morrissey Fest! In Toronto! This Saturday Night! Why am I not going to this?
  • Sugababes cover Arctic Monkeys AND Hard-Fi!!!
  • The Sun calls Toronto "sleepy Canadian city". The Sun has clearly never been to Toronto.
  • The Onion: "Franz Ferdinand Frontman Shot By Gavrilo Princip Bassist." Genius!

    hey valerie, thanks for all the oasis news lately. i have been searching for a track by "shack": brits (from liverpool) on noel gallagher's sour mash label. anyway, finally found the track called "Tie Me Down" and I think you'll dig it. check it out on my blog if it sounds interesting. it's quite, quite the funny & naughty little song.

    Your pal Pete, would make a kickass reality show. For once, i'd watch some TV:

    Imagine him going all Bruce Lee while making one of those drunken Cookie Monster on PCP noises he makes (they are on the records after all): "BwahallaAAH ahaAHrgh".
