Buzzes Like A Fridge

Front up, some new writerly musings from yours truly over at Beat magazine.
Namely Smith Westerns' Dye It Blonde, my full review of The Hidden Venture's Live At St Andrews EP (from my previous listening station) and that vaguely snarky Pearl Jam from a few days back (featured here). Also, it may have got missed in the last couple of days' rabid posting, but Al's Music Rant is appearing as part of the Comedy Festival - details here.

What causes fatigue and is currently all over the interwebz? (aside from pop-up ads)
...that's right, Radiohead's new album The King of Limbs. It seems you can't throw a rock into the digital landscape without hitting someone who has something to say about it. Hell, when it comes to conducing hype, I'm no better. But I'm sort of enjoying this over-saturation. Surely there have been, and will be, bigger things to happen to the world than 37 minutes of new music, but there's something exciting but the circus of it all. I've actually got a 'proper' review in the can and ready to go, but for the sake of letting the dust of opinion-forming muster a little longer, I'm gonna hold off for the time being. Speaking 
Anyway, in my role as being not part of the solution but part of the problem, here's the highlights concerning what we'll now code RHLP8 for fear of increasing those Google hit rates.
If it all gets a bit much, just go chuck on some Nirvana, now there's a good old fashioned rock band that wasn't affected by the hype... oh, waitaminute....
