Jun 12 2008, 13h01 por DrAlexHaleIIIHow I got into my top 20.
My first piece of advice before reading this is that, if you don't feel like sitting through almost 20 "Ben Folds got me into ____ because ______" stories, this is probably not the journal for you. I feel it's worth pointing out here that Ben was the first artist I was ever "really" into, so, while he may no longer be right at the top of the list, he's bound to have had an impact of sorts. Secondly, a lot of these stories I only vaguely remember, so don't shout at me or anything.
The strange thing with Guillemots is that they literally WERE the first "band" (by which I mean a real band, not any of the actors in the pop "bands" my sister used to drag me to see) that I ever saw live. I hadn't heard of them at the time, but they were supporting Rufus Wainwright (who, you will note, is sitting way down at #20 on this list) so they were first on. I remember being pretty impressed (though I wouldn't say blown…
Fev 7 2008, 20h25 por GregKNicholsonThis week's Roundtable featured panellists David Quantick, Daniel Miller (boss of Mute Records) and Martina Topley-Bird.
Judging by Get Over It (played on the programme), Kriss Kross (which you can download at the moment from Polydor's website), Big Dog and Standing On The Last Star (both of which have been floating around on YouTube for a while); Guillemots' second album—Red (more on which at Drowned in Sound)—is rather more poptastic than Through The Windowpane. There's a lot of gospel and R&B-pop type influences, and it's seemingly more in the vein of Trains to Brazil and Annie, Let's Not Wait than Little Bear and We're Here. Topley-Bird's right—this gallops.
The Bears Are Coming by Late of the Pier sounds like an electro-indie band doing an impression of Timbaland. It's energetic and has lots of “squiggly noises” (Lammo's words). It seems a little bit forcibly quirky, as if they're trying too hard to put as many weird noises as possible in there, but it's still fun.

Nov 2 2007, 19h28 por DrAlexHaleIIIThu 11 Oct – Guillemots with City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
I’ve seen Guillemots a million times (okay, five) and I’ve written about how brilliant they are almost as much (…four), so it comes as no surprise that they’re my most listened to artist on Last.fm. Something that did, however, come as a surprise was the announcement in May this year that they would be playing the Birmingham Town Hall with a Symphony Orchestra, in a special one-off show. Of course, upon hearing this news, I raced to the ticket office (website… ahem), only to find that they didn’t go onsale until the day after me and my dad were to see Guster in London so buying the first batch would be a little bit hard. I booked two anyway, regardless of the fact that the show would take place just a few weeks after I would leave Birmingham forever for University, one for me and one for (my then girlfriend) Carolyn. Even though we broke up in August, the two of us still went along to see this epic show. Here’s what happened…
Out 1 2007, 21h51 por minkypinksta... I DJed at the student's association during the inbetweeny bits for a gig by The Pigeon Detectives (pish) and support act Interloper (quite good, in comparison at least, but they don't seem to be on here yet). It was all a bit last minute and shambolic, as myself and my friend Dan were told we'd be needed for 2 hour long sets, but actually it was just a free for all so we dotted between two mix cds I made up about an hour before I had to leave. As a result, some of it flowed quite well entirely by accident, and unsurprisingly some of it didn't at all.
So, the set of random, recorded for posterity, was as follows.
1. Hey Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken
2. Keep Fishin'
3. O, Valencia!
4. Wake Me Up Before You Go Go
5. Virginia Plain
6. Trains to Brazil (the acoustic one, totally by mistake, as the track was re-named wrongly in iTunes... I meant to put on the Supermassive vs Mandy mashup!)
7. Do You Realize??
8. Disco 2000
