Stoked that Jonny G and Tom Skinner are working together. Not so thrilled that it involves Thom and Nigel.

I think this could be another thing where I end up wishing they’d got a different vocalist

Haven’t heard them yet. Do they sound… smiley?

I’m guessing no?

Supposedly they’re an acid house / funk ensemble

Really weirded out seeing some Facebook comments going “I hope Thom doesn’t try to stop Jonny from ROCKING OUT like he does in Radiohead!!”

Like have you heard Jonnyboy’s movie soundtracks? He is fully on-board with any weird shit that happens to be going down in the studio pal

Worried I know exactly what this is going to sound like.

Very King of Limbs vibes in my head, esp if they have one of those young London jazz wankers that they have now* tickling the skins for them

*not meant as a slag off, I just enjoyed the wording

Well, we’re 20 mins from finding out on the now free-for-all stream…

(feel a but guilty but have been to Glastonbury 20 times, including a ticket for next year, so Greenpeace/Water Aid/Oxfam have done OK from me…)

Bet they suck
