Red Red Wine
Oh my head. Anyway, apologies if it's been a bit quiet around here of late. Blame Christmas. Be it parties, shopping or exhaustion following them, it's a testing time. Anyway, thought I'd just do a quick rundown of where we are, and what's bothering the Bandito brain this festive season:
Futureheads - 'Hounds Of Love'. NME single of the year, and quite rightly so. I was worried it was a little gimmicky when it first came out, but I now think it's guaranteed classic status. Oh ohoh!
The Muppet Show. It occured to me when I was Chrimbo shopping in HMV. The TV's were all showing clips from a Best of the Muppet Show DVD, and I suddently realised: it's rubbish. I mean, A Muppet Christmas Carol was great. And don't get me wrong, I do like a lot of the characters, but the show itself is always a massive disappointment. Ironically, the show's younger sibling Sesame Street is almost always superb, and Cookie Monster deserves his own show, based on the already superb Monsterpiece Theatre. I could watch that all day. But The Muppet Show itself is always crap.
Pizza Hut pizza. It's my favourite and always has been. I know it's not "real" pizza, but so what? I like it more than traditional stuff. It's just nicer. and ideal hangover food, which is why I'm eating it as we speak. Hawaiian, since you asked. And for anyone who says that fruit on a pizza is wrong, i have only one thing to say: tomato.
Time Out's North/South issue. Of London, naturally. Which side of the divide are you on? They say it's grim up north, but I'll always be a north Londoner myself. South of the river? Not at this time of night... A desolate wasteland. Sorry.
Hemel Hempstead. As someone who grew up down the road, I've been saying for years that someone should blow it up. I never throught they'd actually go through with it...
2005 Best ofs. I'll be doing some soon, I expect, probably with a long list of songs I've enjoyed this year. Top 10 doesn't really seem enough, so it might be more like 40 or 50. Sorry about that. I'll try and be as witty as possible for people who hate music. New York, London, Paris, Munich, everybody talk about pop muzik.
