CutOffYourHands-8873web.jpg

I had been looking forward to Friday's set by Cut Off Your Hands for a while. I watched a YouTube clip or two over at Torr's website a few months ago and really liked "Oh Girl." I found their album You & I after a quick perusal of eMusic and I've been rocking the record in heavy rotation ever since. Their record is a bit more Smiths-y than their live show, which is more blunt and reminded me a bit of Iggy Pop, mostly because of the lead singers similar stage moves. The backing vocals were more prominent in the live show as well, showcasing the band's pop instincts. There was a lot to like. Unfortunately the place was virtually empty when they went on, there were maybe 100 people there, but the band played as if the venue was full. Respect.

They are back in town in a few weeks at Iota, opening for Viva Voce, a show I would love to attend but can't. I will hopefully be covering the PJ Harvey show that night before heading up to Philly for the Roots Picnic the next day. Dean & Britta are also at the Black Cat that night. Sigh. I fear it will be ages before they come back. Dappled Cities, the last band from their part of the world that I fell in love with, played a great show at the Cat, came back a few weeks later for a gig I couldn't attend and I haven't heard from them since. I hope history does not repeat. This is a band worth checking out.

They did a Daytrotter session last week.

I'll have some outtakes from Mr. Pink's impromptu photoshoot available on Flickr tomorrow. He's my #1 fan! His bed is located under one of the turntables, and whenever I start practicing he gets in it and lies there listening. It's very cool.

Ahem. OWNED. For the record, we were up by as much as 37 points in that game. Poor wittle Reggie wooked wike he was gonna cry! Thanks for reminding everyone what a punk ass little bitch you are. I will take great pleasure when the Celtics end your career. All the C's have to do now is stay focused, Catchdubs steez. We just need more of the same from Marcus Banks and Al Jefferson.

In case anyone was wondering, Divo is awesome. I taped Dawn of the Dead, Kill Bill Volume 1, The Return Of The King and two episodes of Later...with Jools Holland (one with the Beta Band and Morrissey!) over the weekend. I am hooked.

Don't sleep on all the contests and free stuff out there for you:

Is gmail acting wacky for everyone else today or is it just me?
