PROTOMARTYR – “WANT REMOVER”
Currently welded to my tympanic membrane: Protomartyr. “Want Remover” was my favourite song of 2014 and I’m happy to see it ‘getting the video treatment’ as they say in the business (and by ‘the business’ I mean music bloggers happily settling for clichés). Anyway: Protomartyr. They are really, really good, ok? You are buying their album on Bandcamp, yes? Ok. Settled.
BLONDIE – “SUNDAY GIRL” (1979)
Current feel-good song: Blondie. No reason, really.
Last year, in June, I stood next to Deborah Harry at the reception counter of the Ace Hotel in London. She was wearing a black and white T-shirt that said: “SELFIE”. No photos were taken of this event.
