...I never saw the beach

So it turns out I never went to the beach. Instead I stayed home and played computer games. Like Championship Manager 5. Theme Park [SNES Rom - old school is the best school]. Warcraft III. And... I desperately wanted to play The Sims - who knows why? - but still, I never got to becuase I don't have it. Well, now that you're updated... I'll go post another simple post before I do a decent post on Regina Spektor [hopefully?] and a post on Saddle-Creek and Conor/Matt Oberst [definitely!]. So, let's hand it over to Wiredset again...

Many people will have heard of the Mull Historical Society, I definitely have and I've never listened to their music. But their music always crops up in the magazines I read, and the reviews are always strong ones. Thus, you can see why I found it interesting that I was given links to these songs by them. When I say them, I mean him. And him = Colin Macintyre. Here is what he says of the change of name:

“It’s important for me that my fanbase realises that nothing has changed here on a creative front. They are still “The Society” and I’m still from Mull. By dropping the MHS name I’ve not suddenly gone solo – I already was solo.

“What I’m doing, by changing to my own name, is part of the continuation of my creative journey, and I wont be doing anything differently from the way I’ve operated before, except that I think this change will help me grow more as an artist. For some time now I’ve thought about doing this and now it feels like I’ve shed a skin. But I’ll always play songs live from ALL of my previous albums. And maybe it was also time for me to give the real MHS their name back!” Colin

the beach is a nice place...

*Note: this isn't the beach I'll be going to.

So for the next few days I shall hopefully be going to the caravan, and thus, no posts. When I come back expect a three-part post on Conor Oberst, and maybe a post on Saddle-Creek. Well, that's all for now. Maybe when I take my laptop to the caravan I'll find some music on it which I just have to tell you about. Hopefully...

Note: I also fixed the time-stamp: It now reflects the time that it actually is where I live. Why am I telling you this? Well, now you can see for example why I was tired when I posted the Aberdeen City track ['cause it was 5:15 AM]... Anyway, I like it telling the right time. Kinda handy. Enjoy. Oh... and I've got EZ Archive working for me. Sweet. Expect to hear No Lies, Just Love by Bright Eyes, very soon.

The subject is a lyric from the song Assassin by Komakino. Good band. But this post isn't about them, 'though you'll see the relevance in a minute. First, sorry about the lack of posts the past weekend, I've been rather busy going out/working. Saw three bands this weekend though... maybe I'll post on them at a later date. So anyways, here's an easy post... easy because all the information was given to me. Yup; emails are indeed great. Without further ado, People in Planes:

Originating from Cardiff, Wales, People in Planes have been receiving major buzz in the US – especially after their tour with The Bravery. People in Planes are putting out their debut album on March 28 entitled "AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE..." which is produced by Sam Williams (Supergrass – “I Should Coco”).

If you want to watch the video [which is rather good] click on this link and it shall stream...

There's also the MP3 on it's own...

And then another MP3...
