Christopher Hitchens (April 13, 1949 - December 15, 2011)
This one's for you...
Something a bit different this time, what a lovely voice....
No words, just beautiful.....
All we are is wind in the dust...
And there is no law of averages here
If you feel down
Then you're bound to stay down
Everybody's clever nowadays.
From someone who loves you...
Your clothes are alright. You're hair's alright.
Singing is still the best therapy I've ever known, and I would suggest to anyone whose life is rapidly decomposing to open their mouths and sing. - Morrissey
Martin Rossiter posted this in his news feed: "For those of you up late or in different time zones. Stop what you're doing and listen to this..."
I hear a little Paul Simon in there. Anyone else?
Debut network TV appearance on Letterman...
Anyone see a bit of Nirvana in this band? Singer looks a wee bit like Kurt albeit a bit more chirpy, a little cuter, and a little less grungy. But he's got Cobain's guitar moves down pat. Drummer, long-locked and in flannel, is definitely channeling Dave Grohl... perhaps the subdued version. As far as the lead guitarist goes... he kind of reminds me of AC/DC's Agnus young in his school boy digs.
They have a shoe-gaze sound but are not gazing at their shoes. Are they? No, these guys are moving around quite a bit. Anyhow, I'm keeping my eyes on this band.
They do have some Nirvana influences, apart from the sound and looks, their original name was 'Dive' which they named after a Nirvana Song.
I think they changed it to Diiv after some legal issues...something like that.
