Yes, that’s right. Back next week. Which is a huge improvement on last year’s effort, isn’t it? That’s hard work and dedication for you.
Seriously, thanks for bearing with me while I make some necessary alterations. I hope you’ll like them.
I also hope you’ve voted in the Triple J poll. If you tried, but found that you couldn’t submit your details, enter ‘7000’ as the postcode and be sure to state that you’re from overseas.
And don’t put it off, do it now. Voting closes tomorrow.
Here’s my list (with links to a few MySpace, Facebook and Last.fm pages, should you fancy a listen):
– Augi March, ‘Lupus’
– Coldplay, ‘Violet Hill’
– Elbow, ‘Grounds for Divorce’
– Fleet Foxes, ‘He Doesn’t Know Why’
– Kings of Leon, ‘Sex On Fire’
– Little Red, ‘Witchdoctor’
– Metallica, ‘The Day That Never Comes’
– Razorlight, ‘Wire to Wire’
– The Rocketsmiths, ‘Boy Who Cried Misery’
It was actually quite difficult keeping to ten, in the end. (Had to squeeze ‘Echoes’ from Gdańsk in, naturally.) I’d love to discuss these tunes with you sometime. Note to self: open comments ASAP.
I’ll be asking for your Best and Worst of 2008 lists soon (song, album, concert, DVD, book, etc.), so have a think about that.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and I’ll see you at the earliest opportunity next week.
