New Article at The 405

A few days ago, I had the feature space on The 405 homepage with my rather short article on Crossover Artists. You can read it here, at The 405, or hold on for my most recent review in a couple of weeks. Finally I've got an album worth reviewing, LoneLady's new release Nerve Up, so that will be going up at some point. Hopefully, I'm starting my Guide To: Sonic Youth once I've given Confusion is Sex and Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star proper listens, and read the biography.

I'm shameful to announce that I do not have any more gigs booked at all. I've been waiting for The Strokes/Carl Barât/Belle & Sebastian/Sonic Youth to tour Britain for a long time, but I've been unlucky, it seems.

The Libertines' fanblog 'Breck Road Lovers' seems to have gone dead since Christmas. I hope the woman who runs it is okay, and coming back soon: she fueled my obsessive following of Carl & Pete with daily titbits for about a year, and it would be a shame to lose that reliable and eclectic news source.
