Fun 'Sexy Breakfast' Facts

- I suspect that their single 'Dust' is the only single ever to have stolen bits from T. S. Eliot and 'Atari Teenage Riot'.
- It may also be the only one to include F. Scott Fitzgerald in the 'Thanks' list.
- They describe themselves on www.OxfordBands.com as 'All inhumanly pretty' playing 'loud dirty pop', and on www.LiveClub.co.uk as 'Glam Funk heroes storming around like . Glitter, sweat, suits and riffs, we've got more hooks than the Candyman, only not as scary. Imagine if David Bowie joined Muse and attempted some Funkadelic covers....now you get the picture.'
- These descriptions are reasonably accurate, in a self-promoting sort of way.
- They were described by the May 2000 issue of Drayton St. Leonard News & Views as 'a rock&roll band consisting of 4 young lads' who 'are all quite good musicians, and should perhaps turn the amp down a bit to let their talent show through.'
- There are (currently) five of them.
- Personally, it would be a lot easier for me if their lead-singer was a girl.
- Except tinyjo would probably scratch 'her' eyes out.

aw, buddy...
Quel horrors! The burgeoning music scene! Rock ass! Why can't we have anything like this here? Oh we do, but nobody pays attention.

Love it that you actually do.

Two more weeks, and I'm walking on your soil. Bug archie to show you the e-mail I wrote to him. You're mentioned in it quite a bit.

Wow. This makes it sound like I'm performing a valuable role in encouraging burgeoning musical talent, rather than just being a sucker for a good tune, especially one that's:
a) shared with my mates,
b) played by pretty people,
c) obscure, and
d) cheap.

Two more weeks, and I'm walking on your soil.

Will do. Careful, though: he already fears that I overshadow him. One girl we chatted to told us that I need to shut up and he needs to talk more. She was probably right. This has since become a mantra for us.

PS. It has been pointed out to me that you express an interest in 'extropianism' in your LJ profile. Is that the same extropianism cultlet set up by a certain Mr. Max More (née O'Connor)? Because he's a friend of a friend, actually. Or, perhaps more accurately, an ex-acquaintance of a number of Oxford people that me and Archie are friends with, though I believe they kind of lost touch with him when he went off to be a loony/guru/whatever in the mythical land of Americaland. Still, we know a great 'renegade cryogenicist' story about him...

T'weren't me that brought it up. Maybe poor guy's got a complex. Told him that having a pint or some coffee together would be keen, and he delegated the possibility of it to you, for reasons having to do with his life being overly full of caretaking at the moment.

S'okay. It'd be cool to meet any of you. No intention of dissing one for the other.

As far as extropianism goes, I'm interested in it, but I'm not a "frosted flake". However, the guy's quite famous amongst a subset of friends of mine, and the very idea that you guys casually know someone who a certain person I know practically worships is just hilarious... small fuckin' world, ne?

Nine more days, and I'm on the soil. I'm horribly excited about the fact that I'm down to the single digits now.

Yer pal,

I say we take Jo to one of their gigs
and see if she would scratch his eyes out anyway. You just like him because he reminds you of you.

Why would it be easier if the lead singer was a girl? Are you uncomfortably attracted to him :) Tee hee hee

And I might not scratch her eyes out - only maybe :)
