I’m going back to London tomorrow, for a holiday (that’s Eltham Lido in the picture, big up the SE9 crew) for a week.
So, any tips for gigs or cultural activity are much appreciated!
Also, if anyone needs the keys to ‘Spill Towers whilst I’m away, just holler and they shall be yours!
**edit** Also, also, also; this song has just blasted into my psyche-
It’s more of the Xiu Xiu madness (a continuation of the 16bit Boy Soprano video I posted a while back, I tried to embed the video, couldn’t but it’s worth watching here) but now with joy division synths and a chorus Interpol would kill for, not to mention the blink and you’ll miss it Morrissey reference at 1.40. (or is the whole song directed at Steven Patrick?)
Xiu Xiu have never written tunes this big, and I’m loving it quite frankly – it’s still the same messed up craziness but a bit more focussed than before, a bit more depth and a bit more romance. Heck yes!
More London stuff after the jump:
Two songs, both called “London Town” – you can have brutal grime from the streets of East London with Kano – or you can have the very early londoncentric single from Laura Marling that she soon ditched in order to differntiate herself from the Lily Allens and Kate Nashes of this world. Which one do you prefer?
