Right people, vespa.org.uk has entered a new era. One where bands actually approach ME and ask me to review their latest album. Who would have thought it?
I've been contacted by an unsigned band from Ipswich called The Blind Poets who have just released their 3rd album. They quote some of their influences as The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. I haven't heard the album yet, but I've listened to three of their older songs on the net and while they're very good, I'm not sure if it's the sort of thing you scooterists would like.
Do me a favour and have a listen yourselves; if you give me positive feedback I'll obtain the album and review it.
Lads, thanks a million for the feedback. Funnily enough, when I listened to the three songs, the first two words I wrote down were "folky" and "Beatles". I had a feeling you'd think good at what they do, but not our cup of tea as well, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't way off.
Oh well if the Blind Poets read this, hopefully they'll appreciate that we appreciate them, but that we're just not their target audience.
Scotty I noticed those other links, mainly because of the name Manga Girl which caught my eye. Recommended listening then?
Hey I've just seen the Arctic Monkeys for the first time (I'm not very down with the kids) on that hit parade show on the BBC. They really are rather good, in fact, I'd go as far as to say they're the b*ll*cks.
Well done to Paul Weller, Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys for picking up awards at The Brits last night. Commiserations to Ian Brown for losing out to James "Rhyming Slang" Blunt in Best British Male.
Very impressed with The Zutons on TOTP this week, and I'm loving the new Franz Ferdinand song The Fallen. Which is the first one of theirs I've liked much at all. It has nothing to do with the new Mod haircut the lead singer's sporting either.

This week I am mostly listening to Arcade fire, Bright Eyes, Broken Social Scene, I Am Kloot, TV On The Radio, Ryan Adams, The Walkmen, The Sleepy Jackson and Wolf Parade.
Some Spanish bloke at the Nou Camp ticket office told me I look like James Blunt, it didn't go down to well with me (though my girlfriend at the time found it hilarious). He did redeem himself slightly by then adding Liam Gallagher to the list when I bumped into him later, but still James Blunt .... Tw*t.
