MP3(s) of the Day #862: Sivu

By on Thursday, 4th December 2014 at 10:00 am

Your Thursday just got better. Sivu‘s debut album ‘Something on High’, released in October, was a brilliant LP. (Don’t believe me? Read my review of it here.) While he’s on tour this month supporting Bombay Bicycle Club – whose own Jack Steadman remixed his single ‘Can’t Stop Now’, which you can listen to below – you can enjoy the five-track ‘Sivu’ EP for free by simply signing up for his mailing list on his official Web site. He’s a sweet guy, isn’t he?

Live “Gig” Video: Bombay Bicycle Club’s hilarious advertisement for December 2014 Earl’s Court gig

By on Friday, 18th July 2014 at 4:00 pm

I wasn’t sure where to put this on TGTF, as we usually don’t advertise one-off shows, but this was too funny not to share. Bombay Bicycle Club, who earlier this month made the possibly career-chafing comment that they might never play stadium shows again, seem to be doing some damage control.

They’ve gone to the trouble of producing this video to advertising their show at London’s Earl Court on the 13th of December looking back from 25 years into the future, enlisting the help of friends including their lighting tech Squib Swain (in 2039 as a rock historian) and Elbow‘s Guy Garvey, starring as their fan club president. It’s very Rutles-esque. Prepare yourself for belly-aching laughs and watch the video below. Note: avoid if you don’t want to see bass player Ed Nash’s bare behind.

And don’t be confused: tickets to their Earl’s Court show are on sale and are available now.
