I went into your house and stole all the pictures from the wall.
—A Genuine Freakshow
The last couple of weekends I didn't get around to write "Highly commended" posts because I was just too busy attending shows of wicked bands in England. Here is a band I kinda saw by accident because they played a show with Cats And Cats And Cats: they are called A Genuine Freakshow. They were indescribably good. After the show the band gave away CDs for free, containing the three songs they urrently have on their Myspace page . Listen to them, they're really nice songs.
Talking about England: Last night I finally got to watch Control, the film about the rather short life of Ian Curtis, singer of Joy Division. I actually didn't know any of their music before, but watching the film instantly turns you into a fan. So yea, you have to watch it. Watching actual live footage of Joy Division shows made me realise how accurately the acting of the guys playing the band in Control is. It's such a good film. Go to the video shop now.
