The reunion literally no one asked for
use to quite fancy louise wener
I was going to that festival anyway.
Six and a half years ago I wrote this thing about the weird trouble I had acquiring one of their albums:
Genuinely think they were one of the great 90s bands.
Bloody hell. I mean, I like a lot of that vintage… I love The Bluetones for example. But I can’t see the need for this.
Heh. I wasn’t a Sleeper fan especially. But heck, if a lot of people are into it then fair enough I guess.
Sleeper songs I like:
- What Do I Do Now?
- Sale of the Century
Sleeper songs I do not like:
- NIce Guy Eddie
Sleeper songs to which I am indifferent:
Aw, Nice Guy Eddie! The one that kickstarted my (extremely mild) obsession!
I recalled not thinking much of Nice Guy Eddie at the time but just watching the video on YouTube it’s pretty decent. It’s odd to discover she’s 9 years older than me and was 30 when The It Girl came out. I generally had in mind that most ‘brit pop’ bands were about 5 years older than me and all sort of contemporaries.
I once read a detailed description of the extremely complex computer programme they used to sequence the lights in that video, but I can’t for the life of me remember where.
She’s not 64, Theo, ffs. Have a bit of respect, lad.
Well that does sound cool. If you find it, link it.
9 years older than me, not you mate.
One of Woody Allen’s best films. Oh, wait…
weirdly i googled ‘sale of the century’ just now coz someone alluded to the game show and i wasn’t sure what it was
Where do you stand on Alice in vain?
