11:43 am: Gigs
Probably going to see Brendan Benson on Tuesday. Am sorely tempted by the Soundtrack of Our Lives (who I missed the last time they were touring due to illness), on the Tuesday after that, the 1st. But this clashes with global warming! What is a girl to do?

tankgirlinblack told me to go see the Haunted on the 2nd (Wednesday). And I do want to see The*Ga*Ga*s on the 3rd. Help! fox_in_snow, please tell your boss to book worse bands!

And I see Queen Adreena have been booked for Monday 18th April.

Saw Queen Adreena the last time they played The Charlotte. Excellent, excellent band.
They really should release a new album.
Like now.

They will! "Butcher and the Butterfly", it is called, and the first single, "F.M. Doll" is due out 21st March.

Curiously Amazon.co.uk already have a single for sale by them by that name.

whereas that is very good news, it's still over a month away which isn't technically "now" or even "like now", unless you're viewing time in the overall scheme of things since the big bang which, frankly, I'm not inclined to do. ;P

I was responding to your 3rd sentence, ignoring the 4th. :)

Looking into that single, it appears to have been a non-album single released back in 2002, soon after Drink Me. I guess that they are re-releasing it now means they got dropped from/left Rough Trade - which explains where they've been the last 2 years.

though in fairness "excellent, excellent band" and "like now" barely qualify as sentences.

and yes I am in full-on pedant mode. always good. :D

I did nearly write "sentence or sentence fragment" but decided it would be too sad. You win a cookie!

mmm cookie.

this reminds me, like most things, of an episode of The Simpsons - the one where Lisa criticises Linguo the Grammar Robot for correcting her by using the phrase "sentence fragment" because its also a sentence fragment. funny as.

Yes, you must.

I think I've seen them before (2001ish), but not properly. Either they were supporting a band I wanted to see, or possibly the reverse.

If you hate the haunted, it not my fault, I was telling everyone to go see them cos i was drunk ;-).

I've got tickets or Mortis as well now. Are you going to that?

Yep, already booked. I also have acquired some of his back catalog and am listening to it. Interestingly varied!
