So naturally I bought the album on iTunes. It's called "The Mourning" and it's splendid, indeed. It's a complete mish-mash between music hall, glitch, indiepop and more traditional rock, and it's basically just bizarre and beautiful at the same time. Hell, "Skullduggery" even includes a guitar solo which would've made J.Mascis proud (and that after an intro with clicks and noises and some sort of almost melancholic bossanova!?!). So yeah, hard to categorize, but defo worth buying!

Back to work tomorrow, aaargh, I could do with a week more. Nice weekend, though, went boozing/dancing on Friday, Saturday was spent with the obvious (crime novels :-)), and today I went for coffee at Props and did the laundry. And listened to this (ain't new or anything, just cool).

When you have that many great songs, you really can't go wrong. And The Cure didn't either. But I missed the synths in quite a few songs and I really didn't like some of the programming which they actually used. But they played so many cool songs, so what the hey (Plainsong, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea, Disintegration etc. etc.). And the extra-extra-extras were hotter than hot too. So a so-so concert which made you happy after all. And I'm still on holidays, so now it's back to reading crime novels (hence the Dalziel & Pascoe / Dickens quote :-)).
