Mondays are generally nothing to write home about. Judaeo-Christians say Sunday is the first day of the week but that’s nothing to celebrate either. Sunday is shit too as it’s just a build up Monday.
Once in a while though you have a Monday which is actually pretty decent. Work is a laugh, you manage to get off your arse and do some excercise to rid the Christmas pounds, you make yourself a really decent bit of scran for tea, and you find out that Jaime Lidell is back in the studio. A new video has surfaced on YouTube of him and his and his cohorts performing an untitled track.
If you’ve not heard Jamie’s stuff before I urge you to pick up his 2005 album Multiply. Hopefully with the promise of a new album comes the promise of live dates. I managed to see him at Glastonbury 2005 and he blew my wellies off and it would be great to see him again.
Another thing that has perked up my normally mundane Monday are Bag Raiders. Coming across like a less Gallic, (they’re Aussies after all) Daft Punk Justice Ratatat crossbreed, I hope they make an album as good as their Fun Punch EP.
Available to download at Juno. Just buy it alright. Go on. It’s cheaper than a pint FFS.
