Big Gay Out. LOL.

so, it's that time again, and the first BDO announcement is upon us. here tis:

Neil Young
The Prodigy
Arctic Monkeys
My Morning Jacket
The Ting Tings
Bullet For My Valentine
TV On The Radio
Simian Mobile Disco
The Living End
Sneaky Sound System (i thought these people were dead...)
Tiki Taane
Headless Chickens
Elemeno P (hopefully they'll play all ten versions of that telecom ad song, love that shit)
Luger Boa
The Black Seeds (get your barbecue reggae on)
Cobra Khan
Nesian Mystik (as many smokers as possible at the front of the stage for that one, please)
The Datsuns
Ladi 6
The Naked and Famous

Hopefully it will get better rather than worse with the other announcements, it could only possibly get better, right? If I just imagine that the only people there are Neil Young, Simian Mobile Disco, TV On The Radio and The Naked and Famous, I'm quite excited.

But just WHY do the Ting Tings have to come? God damn it, i just hate them so much. Yes, i know, hate is a very stron word, and hate leads to anger, anger leads to the dark side etc but i'm borderline assassination attempt on their asses. That was a joke, i ain't no killah.
My mum likes the Ting Tings, she'll probably want to come. I want to motherfuckin raveraverave to Simian Mobile Disco. Damn straight.

go forth and download awesomeness. then buy some vivian girls anyway.
Where Do You Run To and Tell The World-----

and this one too, a cover of a daisy chain song (that's also a euphemism for group sex involving more than three people)

mmm, metronomy remix of lykke li's i'm good i'm gone,+I%27m+Gone+(Metronomy+remix)

and some Hatebeak

i think that's it for now.

yee har.

i think Onanon + Ed Gains should make a children's TV show. it would rule.
chick's hotel was fairly awesome last night, a sweet little jaunt out to the port. if only S-C didn't turn up EVERYWHERE and give the general vibe of ruin. i have enough general vibe of ruin as it is. now the task of finding something to hold my attention span this evening. rampageous behaviour is probably on the cards.
Lucky Dragons are playing at backstage tomorrow night, you should head along since they ruuuule. if you wanna check that shit out.

girls who like tape echoes

so, girls who like tape echoes rule, huh? for those of you who don't know what in hell i'm talking about, here's some things that wiki sez about tape echoes.

The first delay effects were achieved using tape loops improvised on reel-to-reel magnetic recording systems. By shortening or lengthening the loop of tape and adjusting the read and write heads, the nature of the delayed echo could be controlled. This then extended into the use of
delay processors based on analog tape recording, such as Ray Butts' Echosonic (1952), Mike Battle's Echoplex (1959), or the Roland Space Echo (1973). These days we have some damn fine (and also some terrible) digital pedals capable of faithfully emulating the tape echo sound, which tends to decay at the end of the echo.

but enough waffle. i'm going on a hunt for bands' blogs and stuff which have GWLTE. acronymised! have to be honest though, i'll probably run out of attention span and just turn to finding bands with GWLAS. (girls who like awesome shit).
