Have just got off the phone from a nice chat with [ profile] augstone , who is apparently suffering from a two day hangover and is considering running breifly away from London to see Suede on Wednesday (jammy sod). In contrast, when he originanally rang me earlier, I was in the bath listening to a play about 'misery lit' on Radio 4. When did all my friends become so much more rock and roll than I am? Someone bring me over a large bottle of absinthe, stat! Maybe I should make more of an effort to get back to get back into professional sadism. That was pretty rock and roll, wasn't it? Ho hum. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find myself suitibly inebriated again soon enough. In the mean time, that Radio 4 play was quite good. Not as good as the one they had the other week about the pet rabbit who could read and write, though.

New Goldfrapp album came out today. I have a sneaking feeling I'll be slightly disappointed by it, though I will get it anyway, because I love Alison, and it's nice to have the whole set of albums. Plus, even below par Goldfrapp is still pretty good. I am very baffled by the poor chart showing of the 'Rocket' single, though, as it is probably their most commercial single to date. According to , Radio 1 have only played the song once, which strikes me as very odd- surely it would slot into their playlist quite nicely? Does anyone have any theories as to why 'Rocket' is failing so miserably? And why Radio 1 aren't playing it?

I dunno - I've had a quick listen to the leak and it sounds...old? I can't really think how to put it, but the album sounds a bit dated and the synths sound a bit clunky and amateur - less good than supernature for sure! I think that might be it - plus, apart from rocket, it's really hard to pick out any track which really takes one breath away, which is really, really disappointing.

In the meantime, I heard this the other day, and whilst it screams of "sixties influenced screechy grrrrrlll electro pop" and therefore something I'm guaranteed to like, I though you might like it too! It's by Electrocute and called "Saturn rings"

I'm pretty sure you are extremely rock n roll! you were a dominatrix not a librarian (although being both would be soo cool- PVC under a tweed cardigan and grey shirt)
You're love for absinthe will live longer than i will lol.
p.s. radio 1 is guilty of being shit- joe wiley can lick my clit

I'm guessing Radio 1 aren't playing it because Radio 1 is rubbish?
