Top 25 most played

On me iTunes. And at work, too, if we're being honest.

Obviously, I can't sleep, though I have to say, this is a HELL of a playlist.

2. Your Love Alone Is Not Enough- Manic Street Preachers
3. Shoot the Runner- Kasabian
4. Claudia- The View
5. Chelsea Dagger- The Fratellis
6. (Songs For My) Sugar-Spun Sister- The Stone Roses
7. Dance Into the Night- The View
8. Vince the Lovable Stoner- The Fratellis
9. Hung Up- Paul Weller
10. Autumn Song- Manic Street Preachers

22. Fluorescent Adolescent- Arctic Monkeys
23. 20th Century Boy- T.Rex
24. Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is- Jet
25. Round Round- Sugababes



to tomorrow's show.

The Winehouse showed up with her game, sober face on, and the Arctics ripped it up. And I'm in Iowa.


Hope the lads repeat this on Sunday. I am so proud of them.

So there we have it: the definitive lesson in how to rise to stadium-band level whilst totally retaining your cool and not turning in Bono or Johnny Borrell-style dickheads.

Make no mistake, tonight the Arctics were incredible.

Rather than drape the stage in huge set pieces, rely on fireworks and gimmicks, the lads played it like they were still playing the Barnsley Birdwell, standing no further than a few feet from each other and not bothering with a drum riser - a tight rock’n’roll unit blasting out hit after hit after hit. There was no sign of nerves and they looked comfortable in being up there – even after the technical hitch – but were more humble than cocky.

And then, of course, there’s the tunes.

If there was any doubt that ‘A Certain Romance’, ‘Fake Tales Of San Francisco’ and ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ – once scratchy post-Libs garage rock tunes - could work in front of 50,000 people were blown out the water tonight.

North By Northwest

Tomorrow the Arctic Monkeys (featuring The Coral, The Winehouse, a Japanese Beatles tribute band and Supergrass)kick off their 2-night stand of ginormous shows at Old Trafford, continuing the grand tradition of Spike Island and Knebworth.
So as the NME says, "No pressure, then."

I'd like to state for the record, that I am completely unable to distinguish which I find more adorable-

a. that the Sheffie boys wanted a "bouncy castle" at the gig


b. that they call giant inflatables "bouncy castles."

I hope Helders busts out his Spidey costume again. Love that kid.

And hopefully, someone calls Amo off Al. Darling, you're married to the U.K.'s Federline. You shouldn't want to 'Do The Bad Thing' with anyone but him. Back off the Mistah Turner! Stop looking at him like he's a Rickstasy

'Miss Lucifer'

My fav track off Evil Heat.

For Kazza

Since girlfriend is on vacay, here's a great moment in both Thomas and Sergio to torture her, and remind her of her non-access to a non-husband-owned computer......

With added Miss Moss! Hee hee.

I told you I'd get you back for
comparing Graham to Louis from 'Revenge Of the Nerds.'

Mr. Joyce and Mr. Rourke are right

'Pounding' IS a great song....

Pounding, Doves, from the album The Last Broadcast

Mike Joyce: Pounding is used a couple of times in the DVD [Inside the Smiths] because, like all great Manchester records, it never feels overplayed. It's such a feel-good song, and I love the bass. This song was like the soundtrack to my and Andy's DJing tour of America and reminded us of home

Random Ten

1. Driving South- The Stone Roses
2. The Boy Looked At Johnny- The Libertines

I'm going to hell

the worst place in the world!

Why? Because the following came out of my mouth in regards to the pic at your left:

God, Wee Kyle needs to go without a top more often.

I'm not exactly the best Catholic in the world, but I think I need to do at least 3 Rosaries to compensate for lusting after young Mr. Falconer.


Shit, make that 4 Rosaries.

Face For the Radio- TITP

Fwaaaah, Wee The View lads......

Sexy! Yes, yes, yes.....

I've heard this song, which premiered on Chris Moyles's show last week. It features the typical GA bizarro production and insanely catchy chorus....

Girls Aloud are set to release their new single 'Sexy! No, no, no..' on September 3.The track is taken from the band's fourth studio album, which is yet to be named. The group will team up with songwriters Xenomania again, who have worked with since they began life on the 'Popstars' reality TV programme.

Oh, MY! Part 2

Um, Wellah is looking, uh, FIT, in this pic.

Oh, MY

Kazza, you're right. That shirt IS a great moment in Thomas. But you neglected to mention appearances by Carlito, Stanley, My Beloved Noel and The Fratellis in this video. I may have to retreat to my fainting couch. Or bed, as it's a bit late. Whatevs....
