Swiss Lips
“U Got The Power”

We’ve gone culinarily bonkers here at Planet Killing Moon. No word of a lie. Yesterday we ventured out at the now-untimely hour of 1pm to “do shit” in Ealing Broadway, and ended up bringing back assorted light bites from Marks & Spencer that were matched in their hefty price tags in both quantity and deliciousness – incidentally we also returned with two DVDs from the now pop-up HMV in the town centre (we’re pretty sure it went under when the high street chain was taking a financial bollocking not too long ago), namely Horrible Bosses and The Running Man, as well as the 2012 edition of the Cliff Richard annual calendar (some great poses this year).  Today, we are focussing our efforts on one of the great British past times, namely the beef roast. That was £30 well spent, and we’re now to decide whether we take the Delia or Jamie routes to feed our two brothers, one sister-in-law, and potentially one special ladyfriend, as well as possibly ourselves in the process if there’s time. While we’re thinking about that, Manchester’s Swiss Lips have been putting us in a mood that is a departure from the Come Dine With Me mentality and into a more celebratory scene from White Men Can’t Jump, which is exactly what is needed when one is this exhausted. This purposefully-enigmatic bunch of dudes from the Midlands/North/whatever have been spreading across blogsville like a technicolour dream at an incredible rate for the last month or three, which is instantly reminiscent of how quickly Bastille stepped things up almost exactly a year ago today; indeed, there are parallels to be drawn musically between this and that, with sprogs of Fever Ray and recent TOTD’ers Jethro Fox and Big Kids. You WILL almost certainly be seeing these guys and/or gals playing the big buzz nights in London (straight away we’re going to say White Heat and/or Gold Dust, or any number of blog-run clubs including the one we put on) and you WILL love it. In the meantime, deal with the joygasmic viral below which documents a time when people resolved their difference via dance off’s and not violence.
