I accidentally Pop-Punk’d by mistake.
Anyone going to Think Tank in Newcastle tonight to see TWY/RF, feel free to say hi. I want to meet more people from up here that are into Pop Punk! I’ll be in a grey Seahaven tee and black rimmed glasses.
The new Christmas song by Real Friends is probably the best Christmas song I’ve ever heard! It somehow managed to beat Christmas at 22, Decemberism AND Weak Man Weak Boy (Christmas version), and you know… and all the actual Christmas classics that somehow manage to feel overplayed after one listen.
and in another 15 days I’ll be seeing all three of them live. So stoked.
I don’t care that I haven’t found a house in Newcastle yet. I wasn’t risking this gig selling out!!
I’ve used Spotify for almost three years now and so i haven’t been buying CD’s. But going through my old CD collection has reminded me how much better it is the have the physical copy of something. CD’s that I loved five years ago are still here in my room. But because I’ve used Spotify for so long it means that when I look back in a few years time there isn’t any physical evidence of the bands that helped me through University.
The reason I chose Spotify over CD’s three years ago is because I’d spend £10 on a CD, think it was rubbish and then be pretty annoyed I wasted my money. So I figured now I’d listen to albums on Spotify, and if I like them I’ll buy it on CD.
I’ve started off buy ordering Put Yourself Back Together (Real Friends), Saves The Day (S/T) and I also pre-ordered The Finer Things (State Champs) because… well it’s clearly going to be amazing.
There have been some amazing releases already this year (and some poor ones…) so I thought I’d rank my preferences so far:
1. Paramore - Paramore 9/10 (239 plays)
2. Fall Out Boy - Save Rock and Roll 8.5/10 (190 plays)
3. Senses Fail - Renacer 7/10 (88 plays)
4. Mallory Knox - Signals 6.5/10 (179 plays)
5. The Story So Far - What You Don’t See 6/10 (82 plays)
6. Transit - Young New England 4/10 (39 plays)
and then later this year: Man Overboard, The Wonder Years, CIWWAF, Jimmy Eat World, 30STM, Andrew McMahon and Real Friends will be releasing new material too! Hell yeah 2013.
..to replace the dub step rubbish that had been on before and one of the girls turned to me looking pretty angry and said "you know it’s not 2006 anymore!!"
- what happened in 2006!?
