The Just Joans - Last Night From Glasgow Saturday

Its been a great week with David and Chris of the Just Joans playing every night.
This, this is their final song "Five Beer Bottles"



I was going to shoot a video for it all rain drenched Glasgow streets, smeared street lights and drunken taxi punters. Ach, Blair can do it when the Just Joans get signed to a major. Someone's bound to watch the video eventually.

The thrilling third webcast from The Just Joans
Today its "I hear you're a man now, John" ruminating on how friends drift apart. Time passes I guess.



Feel free to pass judgement on it over at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqb2OzAay7M and if you're all signed up to YouTube already, you could do worse than subscribe to the Last Night From Glasgow webcast channel thing

And if you're really getting into it, check out the secret blog of manc_ill_kid the charming host and creator of the concept, and his ruminations on The Long Tail
Iconoclast? I think so?

A bit of a special one from Images of Mathematicians on Postage Stamps tonight. This one's a corker, I couldn't quite believe it when Robbie pulled out a pair of Casio VL-1 keyboards and thrust one at me.

New Dawn Fade, originally by Joy Division I guess, but done in the now legendary electro-twee style



Feel free to leave comments and stuff over at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPU2tdHf1o0 and if you're MySpace inclines try http://www.myspace.com/iomops to make friends with Robbie and urge him to record the album you've been waiting for.
