Every gal and every boy that's born into the world alive, Is either a little Liberal or else a little Conservative (Fa la lah)

[Poll #584258]

Of course, we all know that Boris would really be the best bet. Unfortunately, though, the Conservatives have still not recognised that their chief role in life is to provide light relief to the political process and are running round possessed of the extraordinary notion that they're a serious party which might one day return to government. Tragic, really, when it happens like that...
I'm currently wondering whom I fancy. )

And bats with baby faces in the violet light, Whistled, and beat their wings, And crawled head downward down a blackened wall

On an entirely different note...

I have quite a strong yen to see Hawkwind live again. I don't think I've seen them since 2002, when they supported Motorhead at, oo, Wembley, I think. Notwithstanding the fact that they were absolutely awful on that occasion, I think it might be fun to go again. They're doing their regular Christmas show at the Astoria on 21 Dec, and there'll be dancers and explosions and swirly lights and, well, major hallucinogens and that sort of thing! Fun for all!

I'm in the unfortunate position of knowing that not a single one of you would dream of wanting to accompany me, but I thought I'd mention it nonetheless.

Also, is there truth in these rumours about Neil Innes forming a Bonzo Dog Band line-up for a tour next year? It sounds like an absolutely terrible idea to me, but never mind...

I'm not really here, but I couldn't let this little fashion for posting pictures of bands and then asking the readership to guess them pass by without, well, elaborating on it a little.... You possibly don't remember the column in Kerrang which every week used to picture a rock star of the moment in embarrassing former plumage, but I do...

The protocol (from [ profile] duranorak and [ profile] zoo_music_girl):

The rules:
1. Open a music player.
2. Go to 'all music'/'library'.
3. Hit shuffle/repeat/randomise.
4. Find photos of the first 10 artists/bands that come up [no repeats and no cheating].
5. Have people guess who the artists/bands are.

But I'm at work and don't have a music player, so here are just some more unusual photos of some bands I like... Try and guess, but don't read the filenames! Or just gawp in horror...

Shots they almost certainly didn't want anyone to see... If you like rock bands and want to carry on liking them, think long and hard before clicking on this link )

Gosh. Reissued! And with four bonus live tracks apparently. I really really shouldn't. But, umm, it's got four bonus live tracks...

Do you get that thing where you feel like you're uber-virtuous and a really good person when you actually part with money for a CD nowadays? I really like that little frisson of moral high-groundedness. It's like, people who are good all the time mustn't enjoy it very much, because it's so much better a kick when you only do it occasionally.

Also, somehow I'd missed this: if ludicrous rock gestures are your thang, go to Jizzy Pearl's site, for video from the LA news channels of Jizzo crucifying himself on the Y of the Hollywood sign in an attempt to drum up sales in 1992. Oh dear. Gotta love planet rock, though, haven't you? I think this was some knotted-brow attempt at art. Or something.

Incidentally, I'm gonna buy Vain tickets for the MeanFiddler on 27 May. For whom else shall I buy?

Oo, and another thing: if, like me, you remember the Decline of Western Civilization, but don't actually have a copy, then Faster Pussycat's section is available for download from Brent Muscat's site here. 'So how come you guys are so obsessed with sex?' Complete with live versions of 'Bathroom Door' and 'Cathouse'... Who could ask for more? (hmm, although sound quality might be nice...)

Incidentally, some time or other, I think we should go round to someone's who has a really big tv, and get in copies of 'Decline' and 'Airheads' and 'Detroit Rock City' and any other cool hard-rockin' movies and nostalge.... :)
