Beautiful clip of Stevie Nicks singing Wild Heart while she gets her make-up done for a Rolling Stone shoot. It’s been going round my head all day… Where is the reason, don’t blame it on me, blame it on my wild heart…
p.s. a note about the highly unpredictable nature of posts at the moment. Another online project I used to work on, called The Multicultural Politic, is undergoing a really exciting redesign and launch, and I’m re-joining the team as Co-Editor. Once I’ve sorted out in my head which posts should go where, and who I want to read what, then things will sort themselves out! thanks for being patient x
hallo! I had an unintended blog hiatus as have been all over the shop recently, getting into the new job, girls’ weekend in paris with my sister, and now have just got back from my first ever Glastonbury! It was immense! I saw so many amazing acts, and here is just a sample of my favourites.
I saw Leon Fender Walker in the Leftfield tent. He’s been taken under the wing of Billy Bragg, as part of the Jail Guitar Doors project and he was brill!
The Correspondents. Great video, great lyrics. Utterly INCREDIBLE live. This guy’s dance moves are something else.
And last but not least, Beyonce. I don’t know what to say. I stood for about 4 gajillion hours in the Pyramid field and through tenaciousness and perseverance made my way to the very front! It was so worth it.
I think… I might be fan of Nicola Roberts. I really like the video, there are lots of boy dancers (watching this made me realise how few I’d seen over the past few years, so let’s hope this gets them back to work!) and the girl dancers are wearing clothes! *yay*
The song is pretty cool too, in an annoying, catchy sort of way.
Cheryl must be so depressed.
Today is a bumper edition, since there is so much good music in the world.
RIP Gil Scott Heron. Most beautiful song.
Was in the pub this week when the Smashing Pumpkins came on! My immediate thought was “Oh yeah, THE SMASHING PUMPKINS”. I couldn’t believe they had slipped my mind for so long. Most beautiful band.
I just discovered this brilliant song by Peggy Seeger yesterday. She’s a fascinating, political woman. Check her out.
I saw Michael Kiwanuka at Secret Garden Party last year and he was breathtaking. This is the only music video of the lot and it is beautifully shot.
Another thing I did this past weekend was catch a couple of things at Brighton’s Great Escape festival. I really enjoyed a set by this girl, who goes by the name Daughter. Visit her myspace for what I thought was her best track, Landfill.
While I was in Japan I burned a load of my dad’s CDs onto my computer, including 2Pac’s greatest hits. Love this one.
