Tweet There's a small stretch of road near our local pitch n putt club that is a death trap for hedgehogs. Every other week, one of the poor spiny fellas gets turned into magpie fodder. Yesterday, I saw a young lad drop kick the most recent hedgehog corpse at one of his mates. It seems the youth of Kells will find plenty to keep themselves occupied during this recession. MP3: Robert Pollard-Subspace Biographies Here's an MP3 from the master of lo-fi rock Robert Pollard. It's taken from his first solo album 'Waved Out'. Robert is on my stereo a lot these days. He formed a new band called Boston Spaceships with a Decemberist among others. Although every new Bob release gets wishfully hailed as a return to form in some quarters the fact is that most of his post Guided By Voices output is hot runny shite. However, the Boston Spaceships gang sound like a proper band and their songs, while not scaling the ridiculous peaks he once climbed with ease, are solid and fun. Here's a good 'un from their new album 'The Planets are Blasted'... MP3: Boston Spaceships-Headache Revolution There's a great night called PANDAmonium! returning to Dublin after being on holiday for a while. It will in Spy on Friday and I will be DJing there intermittently. Lolo is the captain of the ship. Expect a very eclectic mix of music, old and new, from Steve Winwood to Zomby by way of Elephant six. Oh, and those ten euro bottles of wine on promotion 'til nine are far from shite...they go for around eight quid in spar and are very drinkable. A forthcoming blog will be a round up of the Irish stuff I'm listening to at the moment. If there is anything you would like to point my ears towards send it on.
