Let's hope the much hyped internet based 'music revolution' isn't just post-Libertines/Babyshambles/Arctic Monkeys media babble and is a genuine movement towards a fairer, more diverse music industry.
On a side note, don't you just adore how they iterate that, "I'm doing it for my friends, family and my 2 twin budgies," when really they're doing it for themselves in the most egoistic way, and why shouldn't they?! Sod sucking up to the fans! If they like it they'll buy it.
The fewer syllables spent on about Shayne and X-Factor, the, frankly, bet---...!
The Loretta comeback, though, is one my albums of this admittedly-young millennium so far... Ten times as cool as any grandmother could hope to get, surely..
Being a fan of the White Stripes and alt.country, Van Lear Rose was always going to appeal to me but I didn't expect to like it as much as I do. Fantastic album. She's not as cool as Emmylou though...
