Last tuesday i went to an interesting gig, that of Carl Barat from The Libertines, but it was his solo tour. The thing is, when i was at uni, many moons ago now, i absolutely loved The Libertines and also loved Carl, he was the coolest man ever!! So when i went to see his new stuff it was with great anticipation, should i have kept the memories of the past? Yes, yes i should have. He was okay, still got his lovely swagger, messy hair and the tightest leather jacket, yay! but it wasn't a rocking!! the only tunes to get the place moving were the old libertines songs and even they were a bit off.
So should i learn from my mistakes?? Because another fave band of mine from uni times Eighties Matchbox B-lie disaster are rolling into town this tuesday. I loved loved loved them, and still listen to their old albums, so will it be as good? i'm debating this one....

so once again i slipped out of my blog, to where i don't really know?! time seems to have flown by since my last post and i've not really got anything to show for it. There have been hen dos, weddings, lots of going out and not a lot of saving going on!! 2 things that i want to return with our my 2 favourite things of late!
1 being the Low Anthem, if you've not heard of them you must rush out and get the album, Oh My God Charlie Darwin, it's amazing, i went to see them at a local club and they blew me away, from a really quiet acoustic irish shanty song, to a loud southern drawl of a song, if you do one thing today, listen to them.
Number 2 is The Satorialist, which i've followed forever, but i'm just not getting tired of it, or think i will do ever!! Scott is a truly cool photographer and his subjects ranging from workmen to the fashion elite are always interesting, go see here!

If you've never heard of gemma correll then i suggest you get yourself over here and check out her online illustrative diary. It's addictive! She seems to make the mundane funny and having recently got herself a pug dog, it's all got very exciting, everyone's her friend now!! Love it! and Mr Pickles!
