Looks like Blush and Bashful to me...


It torks me off that someone as annoying as Zane Lowe*, has SUCH FREAKING GREAT TASTE IN MUSIC. He should be a Keane fan or something...

(okay, not so much with the Radiohead selection, but the others are SO GOOD)

The second series of Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show Masterpiece is broadcast next week.The series profiles records the DJ believes are "masterpieces".The DJ will play Radiohead's OK Computer', 'Up The Bracket' by The Libertines, Guns N Roses' 'Appetite For Destruction' and Public Enemy's 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back' in full and talk about the records on air.

*I have no idea why, he just irritates me.

I love her.

Signs that something was up came when Ditto stepped forward and bent the ear of a member of the venue's staff who was patrolling the front row. And as the band launched into their biggest hit, "Standing in the Way of Control", the people started coming. Ditto herself was doing all she could to pull them on to the stage until it teemed with audience members – maybe 300 of them, all dancing like crazy – and the band had disappeared from view. It was tumultuous, and unforgettable, and it rounded off surely one of the most explosive hours of live music London will witness all year.

Yet, for all their forays on to the big screen, it is in music - and specifically the rock and punk scenes - where Converse have become so omnipresent that they are practically a uniform. And hence why, out of the nine icons featured in the ad campaign, six are musicians and another a former music journalist. Think of some of the most enduring rock'n'roll images ever captured and many will involve Converse, from the Ramones' All-Stars sticking out like canvas clown shoes at the ends of their drainpipe jeans, to the Blondie boys wearing them for their chic, monochrome line-up behind Debbie Harry on the cover of Parallel Lines. When the Strokes announced themselves to the world from the front cover of NME via a moody, black-and-white Pennie Smith portrait taken on the streets of New York, they did so in hi-tops.
