We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Light blogging, good music

Not much time to blog today… blame AnorakLight, Lynch Rider Lulu and Victoria Hume live at the Troubadour. Well recommended.

    I went to see Half Man Half Biscuit last week.
    Some of the cleverest observational humour and finest live music you could hope to see, although judging from the average age of the audience, references to obscure 1980s minor celebrities (e.g. “Nero fiddles while Gordon Burns”) have yet to win them a more modern audience. But who cares?
    Would warmly recommend their 2005 album “Achtung Bono” for the title alone.

  • I have seen Victoria Hume quite a few times and reviewed her gigs with several of her bands. Ross Richardson is a cracking guitarist as well; last time I saw him he was in about three bands.

    Assuming it’s the same Gordon Burns he’s hardly a minor celebrity lost in 1980s obscurity, at least not in Manchester where he is the prime host of Northwest Tonight on the BBC.
