Howdy folks. Patrick Rex here, filling on for TRex on the Late Late Night post.
TRex really, really loves Amy Winehouse, as he has made abundantly clear here lately.
I can't say I blame him… I have done a lot of session work these past few years. I wouldn't mind playing drums behind a soul singer with a crack band.
I was in London last fall for two weeks, off and on, for a gig. It was fantastic. I discovered loads of interesting music in addition to lovely Ms. Winehouse. A lot of it was being done on laptops, interestingly.
I am completely head over heels over this clip –
I don't really know a thing about these guys, but I love this track. For those of you who need a bit of a touchup on some of the cultural references: NME used to be a great music magazine. Lately, not so much. Stephen Fry is a very witty and arch British Comedian. The reason Thou Shalt Not buy coca-cola products is because of their horrible labor pratices. Nestle does some pretty terrible stuff involving baby formula and impoverished nations, as well.
I have no idea what Hollyoaks is , though it appears to be a television show.
"Is it?" – I have no idea. Same with the spelling of Phoenix/Pheonix. There's a controversy over that?
Anyway, watching this video made me really, really want to go back to London.
