Satellite - The Kills

The Kills, they are under rated. That is all


Baby, Life's Too Short - Dirty Hands

This band are ROLLICKING. They took me by complete surprise last week at Barfly, I hadn't braced my self for such a voice. Tremendously tight and seriously invigorating are Dirty Hands.

SEE SEE SEE them if you can.

Pete and the Epiphany

This blog is mostly about music, because music is the closest thing to magic. But occasionally it also houses my meanderings, wistful thoughts, and of course my adventures.

Today it's for the latter. It's easy to get into habits as a human being, and sometimes they are not for the best. As your life becomes smaller and smaller it can seem like ones options are limited.

This morning, over a delectable brunch at our favourite East End eatery - me and my petal decided. You have to think outside the box you've put yourself in, I am inspired and I am never looking back. I am off to explore, revel with rogues, wink at fairies, do what i feel. Liberation.

On another note, Peter Doherty played a one-off gig at The Macbeth last night. He's lovely. He sang perfectly, strummed impeccably, sweated dutifully and we danced vivaciously.

I'll sever my ties.
Oh I'm so clever,
You're so clever, but you're not very nice.

Vince Kidd @ The Boogaloo

Vince Kidd has the best voice I've heard in a very long time. It is rich, gravelly and realllly powerful. In fact - It's so pleasing to the ear that I could easily give up carbohydrates for a week if it meant I could have his voice for dinner every night. Literally - it's that good.

Last week I went to watch him at The Boogaloo in Archway, and I'm pleased to say his voice is just as thick in real life as it is on record. He's got this amazing American 1950's thing going on - but with a punky twist. Maybe if you mixed Elvis with Sid Vicious (If that were humanly possible) you might get Vince Kidd.

Look at him here!

And you can hear him chatting to me on the Filthy Disco soon!
