A package arrived in the mail today for me, containing the new EP from BAM BAM. (They're that really tight pop/rock band (they call themselves "Swank Rock") from Melbourne, who sound somewhere between Transvision Vamp, 1960s garage rock and a bit of Lush; they're fronted by Kristie Montagu, who wrote a best-selling book about op shops in Melbourne and does other cool things.) I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, though look forward to doing so.

Tonight, I went to Bethnal Green, and caught most of a band called The Kissing Time. They were enjoyable, in a post-C86/Library Records sort of way; they sounded a bit like Tugboat (mostly the vocal harmonies). A few of their songs were a bit bland and AOR-ballady; one of them sounded not unlike 1927. I'm told that this is because one of them is into Coldplay.

Your icon made me laugh.

I saw ninety-nine play at a gig last week and they were great live, lots of energy and instrument swapping. Thank you for introducing me to them.

Thanks. It's one of those small indulgences one can afford when there's an outfit that will make custom badges for 50p around.

Glad you liked ninetynine; they rock, don't they? I hope they do another UK tour at some stage while I'm here.
