for all the lucky bums going to Glasto

NME has a sneak peak at who's playing the Pyramid Stage and Other Stage at Glastonbury...
The line-up is totally amazing of course!

all my heroes are getting old

Happy 40th Birthday to Noel Gallagher today! And props to whoever thought it would be funny to sponsor a monkey in his honour!

"i didn't even have time to get drunk"

  • NME has the scoop on all the Ivor Novello award winners. Amy Winehouse gave the best quote of the night.
  • The White Stripes new video for “Icky Thump”... Exactly what you’d expect.
  • Lily Allen is set to duet with Debbie Harry (and the rest of Blondie) tomorrow morning on The Today Show for anyone who wants to pull a sickie or who, like, doesn't work.

    guess who's back in town

  • I made it home from the great north via Air Canada Jazz on Sunday night despite a delay that I’m happy we as passengers weren’t told about before boarding the plane. My visit to Timmins was awesome and the fireworks over Toronto on Sunday at 9:30ish were spectacular from the view up above!
  • Thanks to Elias for sending me this video of vintage Pete Doherty. Sigh. Now that was the man we all knew and loved.
  • Speaking of, Pete did something good!
  • M.I.A. has cancelled the first of several scheduled North American festival appearances this summer. Visa problems again. Who'da thunk it with all her terrorist talk.
  • As someone who’s been attacked by a Canadian Goose (seriously) I appreciate THIS for noting that they have been known to inflict some nasty injuries. I'm only half joking.

    headin north

  • The Arcade Fire show last night was brilliant!
  • No new posts for the next week... I'm flying up to Northern Ontario tomorrow for a friend's wedding this weekend and I won't be back in town and blogging 'til at least Tuesday!

    kill all seals... j/k... obvs...

  • Lily Allen has realized "there's more to life than being thin" and has taken to bashing some popstar no one outside of Britain has ever heard of. Entertaining!
  • I really like The Cribs new single "Men's Needs" but I had no idea the music video would be so racy! (Totally NSFW!)
  • A bunch of musicians/bands (that don't live anywhere near here) want to stop Canada's seal hunt... Don't even get me started on this shit again...
  • Arcade Fire tonight! I'll be the bitch with the awesome view :)

    hit that

  • Most of my favourite songs ever topped NME's Greatest Indie Anthem Ever poll. Uh, so I guess the moral is either I have fantastic taste OR I'm not very original! Here's the full list.
  • Stereogum has a new track from M.I.A."
  • This made me laugh. Especially the New Order/Joy Division one.

    go rappy-taps!

  • Coachella went down over the weekend Pitchfork and NME have coverage. I could care less - I'd rather not know what I missed out on.
  • The Shortlist finalists have been announced. Yawn.
  • Blur – complete with Graham Coxon – plan to reunite in the studio this summer says Alex James. It better not be a dirty lie Mr. James!
  • Pete Doherty’s completed his first solo album.
  • Stereogum has Jason Collett covering Stars and new music from Interpol.
  • Aren't I too old to be excited by this?
