Moz loves Young The Giant - TrueToYou update

  • 33,549
  • 87

Having suffered with relish so much yes-but-no new music, I could break down with happiness at the new - debut - CD by Young The Giant. I will be kneeling with gratitude on a hardwood floor for many years to come. It is the whole thing ... it is the perfect tone ... and Sameer's voice is unbreakable.
If there is any justice in the world (and we all know there isn't) Young The Giant will own most of it by August. It's so easy to fire out remnants of snobbery where new music is concerned (in fact, I find it VERY easy), but once every three thousand years, a band comes along who restore that precious component of faith. Had I the gift of adequate words I would express more than mere thanks.
Instead, I shall leave it at that.

Courtney Love's "Morrissey kick"

Q: Happily, you seem to have gotten over that nunnish phase.

A: [Laughs] Yeah. After I stopped doing drugs I started to f*** like a bunny! Before that I suffered from years of celibacy. I was on this whole Morrissey kick, no masturbation, no romance, no nothing! The store was completely closed. My self-imposed chastity was only scheduled to last for two years, but it went on for three years, eight months and six days.

Thanks to Dickie for spotting this on Twitter.

This may not mean much to non-UK people, but he's well known as the bad boy of English football, and his favourite song is a bit of a surprise...

There's more in this post by Boethius here, by the way, from a couple of weeks ago, which I'm ashamed to say I missed:

"....(Uncle) Tom ignited his nephew's passion for music, and Joey has fond memories of lying on a bed, listening to the Smiths on Tom's stereo."
