For Those Who Have The Means

If it seems like every band that has ever been featured in the pages of NME will be playing at Mercury Lounge in March, you are not too far off. The cluster of UK shows makes sense given that New York is the usual stopover for bands travelling to and from SXSW. Yet I can't help feeling this group of shows is a classic case of quantity over quality. Where are the really exciting new British bands, such as The Kooks and Duels and Morning Runner and My Latest Novel (who you can read all about at Untouched By Work or Duty) and Harrisons and Dirty Little Faces? The tour schedule for Duels has them at SXSW March 14-19, but no mention of where or when they will be playing, and nothing about a show in New York or anywhere else in the U.S. Oh, how they tease.

Finally, a note to Pete: I know you're currently at the mercy of the gaoler's key, but a U.S. Babyshambles show is really really overdue. Let's talk when you get a chance. There's an abandoned warehouse on the Gowanus Canal that would be the perfect venue. It could be the Spike Island of this generation. Think about it. Seriously.

friends and colleagues know her as a fearless mountain climber and nature lover with an insatiable spirit of adventure
But it certainly deserves serious consideration if one is to learn enough from history to stop these things from happening Take your life in your own hands and make your own choices! Simplify instead of complicating life many stages need to be traversed prior to we are able to condition this issue in current terms
