LONG TIME COMING
So last night I went to see the Delays with my exboss. I had made the mistake of saying "they sound like stevie nicks crossed with MBV" which was totally off. Basically, I need to stop listening to the same track "zero zero one" (which does sound like the above mentioned description... actually more cocteau twins, so i was TOTALLY OFF) over and over again. They were fantastic. The singer's voice carried over the crowd like a wave of mutilation. I stared in awe as he yelped like a crazed voice with an uncommonly fantastic voice. At times, it reminded me of JJ72 (remember them? i loved them).
My brother Lawrence has started an amazing new company called RentBid. It's like eBay but for apartment rentals and it's totally fucking unreal. You dont have to pay a brokers fee or anything. The site just launched last week so there aren't that many listings, but I just found a 3 bedroom rental in harlem for $1500. No fee! Czech it.
She's lost control.
Does anyone have the new Midtown record? Their "Aremageddon" vs. Muse's "Apocalypse Please"... it's like STP vs. Pearl Jam, but for one fucking song!
Lastly, I don't know if I've mentioned this yet, but Alex Chow's band, Madison Strays is playing tonight at the Mercury Lounge. They sound like the Psychedellic Furs. They're also playing with everyone's favorite disco punk bands The Flesh and The Moving Units. All three are fucktastically awesome bands. Probably your new favorite!
