i survived hobo camp '06

  • I'm baaack! I had a a great weekend camping up North despite the chilly/wet weather (yeah, it snowed)! I totally recommend the park we stayed at and living like hobos for a few days!
  • Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson was hit by a car over the weekend but escaped with minor injuries.
  • Arctic Monkey's bassist Andy Nicholson is pulling out of the band's upcoming North American tour due to exhaustion. Nick O'Malley of The Dodgems will be filling in.
  • Babyshambles have been dropped by their record label Rough Trade. Apparently, Pete Doherty is "difficult to deal with".
  • Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" is the most successful single in the UK in over a decade. Not bad for their first single.
  • Jamie Hewlett, the artist behind Gorillaz, has won the won the prestigious Designer of the Year award. That's a nice bonus.
  • The new album from Phoenix, 'It's Never Been Like That', is out today. Listen to it in full here.
  • If you haven't heard it yet I suggest you rush and download Willy Mason's brilliant song "Oxygen". It came out like over a year ago but its still good.
  • The Guardian looks back on the birth of the Manchester music scene 30 years ago.
  • Torr posted some Stone Roses studio demos.
  • Dodge posted a bunch of covers of The Smiths "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out".
  • Take Your Medicine wrote a funny little piece about classifying MP3 blogs.
  • I've added my site to elbo.ws (an MP3 blog aggregator) - even though this site is more links to music news/entertainment. Just so ya know.
  • That's all for today folks.

    Gnarls Barkley is the quintessential overnight success ten years in the making. Two guys who have been banging around in hip-hop circles for over a decade (at least in Cee-Lo's case, and close for Danger Mouse) get together for a wierd little side project and get shot into superstardom.
    What's really "Crazy" is that the people who seem to like this song probably never would have bought a Goodie Mob album eight or ten years ago.
    Also, the Artic Monkeys' bassist looks like a guy that gets winded easily, so I'm not surprised he's exhausted.
    Oh, also, sorry I didn't get to post a new show like I wanted to, I have crazy writing deadlines right now. Soon, ideally this week.
