So last Sunday I finally went to see Control. And it blew my mind. Almost literally. Seeing it after a night of heavy partying (dressed as Richey Manic, no less). And then very little sleep. And then no food. And then going out drinking afterwards. Not desperately sensible. But then I've never been desperately sensible...
A while back I was suitably inspired by director Anton Corbijn's original shots of Joy Division for the NME that I thought I'd take my new digital camera on a spin around Finsbury Park. You can check out the shots on flickr here. Be gentle...
And as we haven't had one for a while, let's do a Top 10...
1. Rilo Kiley - 'With Arms Outstretched'
2. Sigur Ros - 'með blóðnasir'
3. The Strokes - 'Under Control'
4. David Bowie - 'Sound And Vision'
5. Joy Division - 'Isolation'
6. New Order - 'Ceremony'
7. Interpol - 'Mammoth'
8. The Auteurs - 'Lenny Valentino'
9. Dans le Sac vs Scroobius Pip - 'Letter From God'
10. My Bloody Valentine - 'Slow'
So, listen to those, watch Control and The Mighty Boosh, eat marshmallows and malteser cake and have fun. Love ya!
