More on the subject from The Grauniad: "The BBC is caving in to a Tory media policy dictated by Rupert Murdoch; Mark Thompson is jumping from the second storey because he fears a new government may throw him from the roof." http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/mar/02/rupert-murdoch-tory-media-policy

What are the people of the nation spending their money on? That's largely what the BRITs tell us. As such it's endlessly fascinating. A bit like my continued amazement that people spend money on The X-Factor's various droids. But there we are. Thusly, when it comes to music awards ceremonies and nominations: - The MOJOs/Qs/NMEs/whichever other corporate music mag: what a magazine decides it wants to peddle in the hope of looking like they influence what people are buying - The Mercurys: what self-appointed guardians of taste think people should be buying if only the people knew about jazz and Gaelic folk instead of Pixie Lott and Taylor Swift - The BRITS: what people actually are buying. Apart from Susan Boyle. And there you have it.

Thanks for all the links to Clash (I hope they're paying you). How about another random preview piece for First Aid Kit's album anyway, on that other site called musicOMH? http://www.musicomh.com/albums/first-aid-kit-2_0110.htm Done. And on...

Oh John. *adds Daisy Dares You to special playlist for El Murph* I like HURTS. Which is why they're decorating the home page. Human League + Tears For Fears influences, yes, but there's more to the one song they've unveiled than just '80s throwbackery. The Drums? Meh. Ellie FTW.
