What is so good is that I'm off on holiday this week and enjoying my rest.
Yeah can't complain, things are rad. I bought some more clothes yesterday.
I have this addiction called Primark - you can anything like a jade coloured polo shirt for under 3 quid...
I also uncovered another gem lurking on a HMV shelf. This time a comp of prog rock songs that were done back in the 60s for a label called Decca. There's some pretty crazy stuff and yes there's an Al Stewart song on it. I love 70s prog - I was brought up on Pink Floyd and Supertramp who were my Dad's favourite bands (he also liked Yes, Quiver and Curverd Air) and this stuff is so clever and awesome.
That's the offical tale of my avatar. Just original... It's a shame heavy metal doesn't learn from their cohorts.
Speaking of originality, I think of VersaEmerge. Their EP has really grown on me and Sierra's vocals are ace and I've seen live clips on YT of them on the Warped Tour this year. Personally I get the feeling that their music does not have much of a punky sound but feels like prog rock (of sorts). I'd like to see what Sierra could do if she could play a keyboard and how that would add to the atmosphere of their music. All of the songs on the EP use effects that sound like they were done using a keyboard... it would be intresting to see. But she's got one hell of a voice and yes... she looks good too. I think the best song on the EP would be 'Clocks' - I love how the majority of the song is done acoustically and the final part is back to the norm. This is a band to look out for and they won't go down the same route Paramore have. I'm excited to hear their full length ablum when it comes out.
And all else is good.
Oh and because I yakked on about VersaEmerge:
