Nice to see you around, fitzy.
Thanks. I like to pop in every once in a while.

And they're definitely in my Top 5 favorite bands.

2 of my faves. 'Like Eating Glass', 'Waiting For The 7.18' and 'Ion Square' are my favorites.

I love Bloc, but . . . sorry, not this song. It's not their worst, but for me, it's definitely in the bottom half.

I like Intimacy and Weekend in the City. Don't love either.

Silent Alarm on the other hand is in my top 10 or 15 for the decade.

And Kele's always kept his sexuality ambiguous, no? I remember maybe reading somewhere that he hasn't really let on because it shouldn't be an issue/talking point, since it's irrelevant.

I don't care who he's fucking. Just keep writing good songs.

All I've heard is that Kele is extremely difficult to interview.

I've heard that too. But yeah, keep writing good songs. (As long as BP is backing you up. His solo album sucked)

He was quite talkative to me when I met him. Of course, that could have been the glass of wine he was drinking at the time, and the fact that he didn't know I'm a journalist. We mostly talked about touring, and what places he liked the most.

There. Fixed.

He's released an LP and an EP. The LP was a'iiight. The EP (the little I've heard from it) was not good.

So good to hear this news.

Also, This Modern Love and Uniform are my two favorites.

I've always found Sunday to be a boring song. Still think that the first part is, but man, the climax is breathtaking.

When I'm with you, I am calm
A pearl in your oyster
Head on my chest, a silent smile
A private kind of happiness

There were 22 songs recorded for A Weekend In The City. It easily could've been a double album. Disc 1 - "Saturday"; Disc 2 - "Sunday".


They missed the boat.

The b-side collection, Another Weekend in the City, which I think is fan-made, is fantastic, in my revered opinion.

Not only were there so many b-sides for that album, but they were all pretty damn good, if not great. There really was not a lot of filler. Crazy creative period for them.
