The week ahead – Ben Folds and The View from Tom Jones’ dressing room

with 4 comments

So in another 16 minutes I will be another numerical measurement older and there will be the usual due consideration and celebratory drinks imbibed. Yet these are far from happy times, fortunately i have a plethora of goodness coming up to keep me distracted and with sweet melodies in my ears.

Over the next week or so there will be exciting interviews with the likes of veteran ivory tinkler Ben Folds, a conversation with Scottish noiseniks The View, a pre Ting Tings support slot interrogation with Fight Like Apes, a little laisse faire with french scenesters Nelson and a good old chin wag with Of Montreal.

There will also be record reviews for Rose Kemp, o’death, Windy & Carl and Steve Gullicks fantastic Tenebrous Lair. Incidentally Steve’s been playing guitar for Soulsavers who frankly had the best record I heard last year!

On top of all this though is the clearly surreal possibility of a chat with Welsh lothario Tom Jones… apparently back with a new seriousness. All knickers to be thrown should be forwarded to…….

  1. I’d be interested to hear Mr Folds’ take on the whole “Bitches Ain’t Shit” phenomenon!

  2. …true…but first i must learn who won the battle of who could care less and if he got his sweater back. Though maybe he never did…most reviews I’ve read seem to be “Folds is just as pissed off as ever playing the same old song!” But I liked that song!

  3. Wouldn’t that be his “black t-shirt,” rather than his sweater?
