Red Card

Money makes the world go round, it seems. The integrity of the World Cup and the FA has suffered a serious blow following the resignation of the FA Chairman after a scandalous revelation by the Mail on Sunday. And as the England 2018 World Cup bid lies in uncertainty, it will be interesting to see what happens in the upcoming matches of the current Euro holders next month. Spanish football is notorious not only for the show it can put on display regarding football skills, but also for the foul play of players when it comes to dives, 'cramps' and general theatrical skills.

Referees were never to be trusted, but this takes things on a whole new level.

Blinding light illuminates the scene

Lying somewhere in the space between a grower and an addiction.

I see a lyrical pattern emerging.

This definitely carries some NIN elements, but I disagree with some hater comments found online that claim this is an old NIN b-side. The lyrics, apart from subtle references to light (both here and in A Drowning) also make some allusions to pleasing others, transitions and endings: the crowd, from NIN to HTDA, and the end of things as they were for Reznor?

Why I might, eventually, get an iPad

Because the iPhone has some pretty decent music making apps. And I wouldn't mind playing with them on something bigger.

well hung

While England remains in a 'hung' situation, and is trying to sort its parliament out, life for average people goes on. Especially average foreign people.

The solution to boredom, grey skies and England's problems (heck, the world's problems) is the following.


and some good old rock/pop in anticipation of the summer:

It's the glare from the reflection

The summer seems promising. Good music coming up, including new material by Trent Reznor and his wifey. Their project is called How To Destroy Angels, and their first released song is 'A Drowning'. NIN with female vocals? Yes please.

Not bad, not bad at all.


Back to the land of utter greyness. Which means, it's time to hit the venues:

13/05 - Booka Shade - KOKO
25/05 - UNKLE - KOKO
27/05 - Sia - Roundhouse
19/06 - Sven Vath - Matter (cancelled)
25/06 - Pearl Jam - Hyde Park

You win some, you lose some.


08/09 - Fever Ray - Brixton
