Soft emotional inner core shielded beneath tough girl exterior?
Ridiculous ginger hair?
Uh-oh. Developing a severe crush on Elly Jackson of La Roux. And I rather suspect she's trouble. Especially following Patrick Wolf's claim that her act was signed by his old record company the very day after they'd dropped him. A cat fight I wouldn't like to get in the middle of. The fur wouldn't half fly... (There's enough of it between them.)
Lucky there's room enough in my world for both, whatever they think of each other. La Roux have tunes and she can't half sing. Plus she possesses that indefinable pop star quality of seeming completely untouchable and otherworldly, yet simultaneously totally vulnerable and delicate. And with a pretend French name to boot. Can we get a Jacques Lu Cont remix from the new Thin White Duke Stuart Price please?
Kudos to Patrick though. After being dropped for evidently not being commercial enough, he makes an album with Alec Empire, once of German anarcho noise-terrorists Atari Teenage Riot. This is a very good thing indeed.

If I was gay, I'd have a massive crush on Patrick Wolf too.
