The big lad is doing a Rough Trade tour before that.
Listening to the new track, wonder what set up he’ll have
is this new song very bad?
OO, week before Primavera? Can’t wait to hear the song - LOVED the first album and his crazy, different live stuff before it.
The title of the new album (Straight Hits) does make it sound like it’s a record of songs exclusively for straight people.
Cautiously optimistic about this one, enjoyed the songs I heard the last time I saw him live, the between-song patter which seemed to be largely about womanizing, not quite as much.
he wrote these songs with these constraints:
- All songs must have a verse, a chorus and a bridge.
- The lyrics must run 16 lines or less.
- They must have the word ‘straight’ in the title.
- That title must be four words or less.
- They must submit to song above all else.
supposedly he’s got a ‘punk rock heehaw’ album in the works as well
I love this guy a little bit too much. I’ll probably suck up whatever he does, shit or not.
It’s out tomorrow, though the current reviews all seem pretty tepid
Got a message from dice to say that his London show has been moved from Shepherd’s Bush to the Islington assembly rooms. Guess that’s a downgrade, presumably because of low sales? Never been to the assembly rooms - any good as a venue?
Like others have said I’ll take anything I get from JTP.
That said I think it’s a shame tracks like this never got their full release:
To be honest they sound more interesting than the new singles. He had a brief period of playing with a drummer as well and that was pretty good too when I saw it. I’d fully recommend people seek out Live at Hull though. One of my favourite live albums, as in its one of few live albums that aren’t total shite.
