  • that’s from Bob Stanley of St Etienne, http://t.co/wJWnYLEGqp (John Peel was a fan as well)
  • “Caroline has rather more in common with the systems music of Steve Reich than … Foghat.”
  • The Wrestler (2008)
    #IMDb Mickey Rourke down and out as a pro wrestler. Great performance, life true settings. 3* http://t.co/t2tpntzu1M

  • Watching Masterchef via Chromecast. Masterclass in effortless comfort-TV. Ruthless though, start the week with a dozen eggs, crack 10.
  • and catching small bands like White Denim and Warpaint at small venues, bands that later go on to make it big (meaning you can leave ‘em)
  • London, the best for gigs. Psychic TV, Kate Bush, Iggy&Stooges, Iceage, Durrutti Column, Alice Cooper, Young Marble Giants, Yellow Magic O
  • Vinyl is almost worn out, but still playable. Seem like the proper way of celebrating to be one of the lucky winners of Kate-roulette today.
  • One of my first LPs bought as a 15-year old smalltown punk in 1978 #nowplaying Kate Bush’s ‘The Kick Inside’. http://t.co/WmUZ3PY2AU

  • Have to say Eventim performed MUCH (bush?) better than Ticketmaster. Eventim site responsive all the way through the wuthering ticketstorm.
  • Another one: managed to get 2 Kate Bush tickets at Eventim just a few minutes ago! Keep browsing the [1] [2] [3] boxes,singles mostly though
  • ATTENTION KATE BUSH FANS - I just bought normal price tickets on Eventim. They’re still coming through…
  • Seatwave and Viagogo already has plenty of tickets for Kate Bush. Classy.
  • That’s it. No more Kate Bush tickets by the looks of it, not even the packaged ones with hotel. Tough shit.

  • http://t.co/wzzl4CVsuH Music for Supermarkets - “notable for having only a single copy pressed, and … destruction of its master plates”
  • but beaten by Jean-Michel Jarre’s “Music for Supermarkets” by some 30 years. One copy, masters destroyed.

  • Profile of Elmgreen&Dragset on Norwegian telly. A much relaxed Elmgreen compared to the last TV profile (Danish). Separate show in Oslo now.

  • I hereby rename Parcelforce to Farcelforce. Everytime I send something to Norway recorded it gets lost, when express delayed.
  • Guardian’s 1st section today 54 pages. Kate Bush appears on 4 of these, one of them an advert. Looks like there was no need for the advert.
  • “I find difficulty in reconciling my gross habits with my net income”, Errol Flynn (via Christopher Pincher quoted by Ann Treneman, Times).
  • so didn’t like it much. I’ll give it a listen again someday soon, now that the Grauniad is debunking its myths.
  • NME’s C86 as I would have received it the post. Hardly played since. Three small Xs in pencil on inside cover, so http://t.co/8DZD9Ax53E
  • Just finished VS Naipul’s “A Bend in the River”, next up is JG Ballard’s Atrocity Exhibition. Both boks I should have read years ago.
  • Both this series of Line of Duty and The Shadow Line suffered from somewhat limp conclusions.
  • Not as bad as the Police Pension Scheme conclusion of The Shadow Line, but sometimes I think writers go too far in trying to outwit us.
  • Line of Duty S02E06. Bent, clever and criminal cops being used by unknown master criminal to commit murder and frame top cop? OK then.
  • Early Status Quo and Reich are both about serialism (well at least repetition)
  • Bless multitasking. Chromecasting full Biosphere album from YouTube through BD-player/amp/speakers while catching up on RSS-feeds.
  • so when do we get Chromecast support in your app?

  • Knausgaard might look like a well-off grunge star, but his writing is pure Nickelback.
  • missing out on the amazing fact that a collective noun for jellyfish is a “smuck of jellyfish”

  • Line of Duty S02E05. Interview of Dryden “could be the most spellbinding 17 minutes of television you’ll see the year” . Yup.
  • http://t.co/wyQwP0UXhj http://t.co/c1mku4hRvk on digital audio quality (re Neil Young’s Pono).
  • First heard this prog album at a friends in the late 70s, still fantastic. http://t.co/xVVrgAqyZ7 #NowPlaying
  • Whitten being the man that wrote “I don’t want to talk about it”
  • http://t.co/IdeA5rICfp “Young gave Whitten $50 and a plane ticket back to Los Angeles. Later that night Whitten died ” Jeez, that’s tough
  • Weirdly enough I’ve never heard the original until now #nowplaying ♫ I Don’t Want To Talk About It – Crazy Horse http://t.co/aE79xdEWR8

  • “It would be like a naked man attacking a tank”, Ruslan 17 yo Tartar in Crimea on fighting Russians. Stalin-crosses appearing on doors again
  • Lennon not source of Ringo “not the best drummer in the Beatles” quote. Source is Jasper Carrot (Times, Finkelstein). http://t.co/18H4GFY2T2
  • Imagine Met Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) infiltrate yesterday’s walkout ov legal aid cuts by barristers &solicitors. Now there’s a plot
  • Vegetarians&cancer: “rates of early death … exactly the same [as meat-eaters]”, “obesity and alcohol” are the ones to avoid. The Times p5.
  • Relevant to current affairs drama evenings - the equally excellent BBC “Line of Duty” S02 (police corruption) and “37 Days” (European wars).

  • “serious, contentious, questioning and culturally invigorating”, “utterly unapologetic” etc. TV of the year so far.
  • Solid review for Meades’s “Concrete Poetry” by AA Gill: “reminded us how insipid and people-pleasing most architectural show on TV are”.

  • No surprises there - 100% yes vote on Putin asking for use of troops. No way UN or EU can match the Russian’s swift “democratic” process.
  • Russians moving really fast to protect/occupy Crimea. Watching Fed Council Session vote on use of “stabilising contingent” live on RT TV.
  • Jonathan Meades on Brutalism x2 earlier. JM as unapologetic as the architecture on view, as raw as unset concrete on religion. Excellent.
  • Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring (2003)
    #IMDb 4*. Patiently paced four seasons of man movie. http://t.co/JaTPdtbZcP
