New Music (For Me Anyway!)




Isn't 'early adopter' a marketing term for people that are on the ball?   I like to think that I'm one of those, pioneering trends before the masses catch on.  Ha!  I don't think so. It's only in the last week that I  discovered The Libertines.  They've only been around since 1997. I think that I must go around with my eyes (and ears) closed most of the time.  Sure I'd knew about the dark side of Pete Doherty but didn't realise that, if I delved beyond all  that paparazzi stuff about his troubled life,  I'd discover a superbly talented songwriter and musician.  Here's a song.  Maybe I'm particularly taken by this song because it's angsty tone is a good fit with my current mindset!

  1. A tad too much angst in there for my taste; I go for up-beat.

  2. I really like this band, it's easy for people to have a go at them but they make enjoyable songs and that's what it's all about. If I avoided artists because of what they did in their private life then I wouldn't visit many galleries or listen to much good music.
