Playlist: Late-Aught UK Rock

weekthatwas2
(The Week That Was: Just wait until their fans discover XTC)

When it comes to music on the internet, I’m a fan of Seeqpod.  And when it comes to music of the rock and roll variety, I’m also a fan of the United Kingdom. Bless their snaggle-toothed, pasty-faced little hearts for what they’ve given rock music lo these many decades.

But what have they done for us lately?  I try to clear up that question with my UK Late-Aughts Seeqpod playlist.  From the dual-guitar harmony swagger of Lords to the thoroughly problematic Montana Pete to a very pretty pussy named Colin, the meat pies keep coming.  Do enjoy.

    Wow, that’s some great stuff thanks.

    Have you heard of Artrocker? They’re a magazine in the UK that also does a periodic net radio show (sadly not yet available on podcast, only streaming.) They turned me onto Ice, See, Dead People.

    They kick it out in the way only bored angry drunk college kids can.

    Ha, I knew you’d have yr ears on Greggles. Man, how about that The Week That Was – whoa.

    ISDP: they do in fact bring the aggro-spaz, dig it.

    Have not seen Artrocker, but am happy that 1) print isn’t extinct 2) the pejorative dimension to the term “Art Rock” has diminished with time to the point of suitability for a magazine name. Scorn not the art in the rock.
