Deadman @ my birthday bash

After The Plant She Killed it was time for my new band Deadman to take the stage. We played a short 4-song set before giving way to my friend Javi's new band, Our First Date. It was nice to have a captive audience and I think the songs we played went down pretty well.

Coldplay vs. Joe Satriani

Coldplay are being sued by Joe Satriani for plagiarism and I think after seeing this video it's clear they've ripped him off. I'm surprised that Coldplay even listen to Joe Satriani though, given the disparity in styles between the two.

Coldplay's defence is that Satriani's song isn't very original. But what does that say about them? They're so unoriginal they rip off something that itself is unoriginal. So much for them being the pinacle of britpop, the twats.

Fuck yeah!

It's refreshing to see that Britain's most liberal broadsheet is using API technology in the right way. I'm curious about why 'cock' was big in 2000 - and glad to see that the paper's editorial policy prohibits the use of fucking asterisks!

More in The Guardian.

Holiday in Cambodia Redux

Foo Fighters with System of a Down's Serj Tankian playing the Dead Kennedys seminal classic at some MTV thing in 2007. Awesome, though I'm not sure if Jello would approve of changing "nigger" to "brother" in the first verse. Just not punk, is it? Another sign of the PC times we live in....
