The Indie Hour on holiday. That’s me in the caravan wondering when the broadband man’s going to come and hook up my gaffe with some internet access. Not really though.
So I didn’t have access to THE INTERNET on my travels and am now catching up on what was going on while I was away. Here are a few choice cuts of what our Irish bloggers were blogging about on the em blogosphere. Blog.
Gardenhead giving out about Lidl and Big Brother on Asleep on the Compost Heap. Choice quote “They are the shit that falls steaming out of of the elephantine arse-ring of our celebrity age” Read the blog to find out if that’s directed towards Big Brother or Lidl.
Matt Vinyl plagiarised a press release about the upcoming Underground exhibition in Road Records from the 27th of June til the 6th of July. That’s ok though, he’s a contributor to the exhibition so he’s allowed to copy and paste press releases. He also gives his two cents about Jape’s new album Ritual, which was released yesterday.
Off Her Rocker posted the video for Eyes Closed from Carly Sings album Glove Thief, which was released on Friday. This is my favourite track of the album – the melody gets into your head and you can’t stop singing it for the next two days. Which isn’t such a good thing if you’re not as lovely a singer as Carly.
Jim says Bon Iver were great in Tripod on 2nd of June – Thrill Pier says ‘Meh’. I was also glad to hear via Thrill Pier that Bon Iver will be back in October, as I missed their set at Primavera because I was…asleep. They were playing at 4pm opening up the festival but we’d only arrived home at 7am that morning so….I look forward to seeing Justin Vernon on 7th of October in Tripod.
UnaRocks went to the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival launch last Wednesday. HWCH will take place on the weekend of the 12th of September, back in its original home of Temple Bar. I enjoyed the festival in the POD venue last year, but I’m happier that it’s returned to the mix of venues so that we can all get some exercise in between enjoying some quality music.
The New(ish) Journalism reviewed Sex & The City. He’s obviously just a sexist who has no comprehension of the ultimate importance of Jimmy Choos. I haven’t seen the movie yet but I intend to go with a gaggle of giggling girlfriends and drink cosmopolitans from a coke cup in the cinema while wearing a SJP inspired impractical outfit, all ruffles and bizarre hats. Bah to all you naysayers.
Be back in a few days with those podcasts for you…
