Mark Gardener Highlight Media Interview (Oct 2014)

Craig Scrogie

One of the world's most terrible bands split today.

So what next for Andy Bell?

An Oasis reformation will happen one day but with Noel releasing another High Flying Birds album next year, it probably isn't on the cards just yet.

In January I celebrated the Slowdive comeback by adding my wish that Ride would follow.

It's even closer now I think.

Mark Gardener talks about the possibility in the last couple of minutes of this interview.

He's distanced himself from it before but clearly not now.

I think the success of Slowdive in 2014 has changed everything.

 

Channy Leaneagh (Poliça) Talks Jessie Ware’s Tough Love | The Talkhouse Music

Craig Scrogie

Channy Leaneagh, for The Talkhouse Music:

The first time I saw Jessie Ware perform, it was on Poliça’s first trip to Australia. I walked up to the stage at the top of the set and was captivated by her energy — her vibe, so to speak. The timbre of her voice and the way she touched each note, singing with ease and deep emotion, felt so good to my homesick soul. She seemed to radiate onto the crowd her love of performing and making music; it had an infectious quality of joy and gratitude. I watched her set one more time in Perth (we were on the same string of festival dates for Laneway 2012) and met her afterwards. Even in our brief encounter, I became a big fan of her as a performer, vocalist and also as a person.

I enjoyed Jessie Ware's first album but found some of it by the numbers soul. Second album 'Tough Love' is very good indeed. Channy wouldn't be wrong of course. 

That Gum You Like Is Going To Come Back In Style

Craig Scrogie

No work of art has given me more pleasure than the two seasons of Twin Peaks from the early 90s. 

I watched every episode 'live', then several times over on video during the following week.

I bought all the books, the VHS, the DVD of the first season, the (Spanish only) DVD of the second season, the eventual DVD box set with all the features, and most recently, the bumper Blu-ray remasters (the first Blu-ray / DVD I've purchased in 6 years).

I don't know where to start in explaining the show's appeal, so I won't. It's just the best. At everything. It touches every human emotion. It's David Lynch's masterpiece.

A picture of the Black Lodge has been my last.fm avatar since day one, there are two Twin Peaks images in my Twitter profile. My obsession with Sherilyn Fenn is well into a third decade. A trip to the Snoqualmie Falls area is number one on my bucket list. 

The new Twin Peaks was announced on the same day that the Juliana Hatfield Three confirmed they'd reformed.

A week on, and I'm still not coping very well with this news.
