So. Tube strike eh? That’s bound to spice things up for a whoolllllllllle lotta people. And by spice up, we really mean fuck up. Having had an in-depth discussion on this very topic with the man/hero Sam Faulkner this afternoon – which involved an intellectual debate on the legality of inacting strike action when you don’t really have a quorum, or indeed a minority of that not-really-quorum (don’t you just feel like a bad-ass saying quorum? CWOOOOORRRRR-RUMMM), then delving into the reasons why such a ballot was being held over strike action (to elaborate, we don’t get to read, watch or otherwise hear about current affairs anymore these days unless it crops up on Facebook) in the first place – we have successfully concluded that this whole thing looks as if it will be a real pain in the dick. And of course we’re very happy to share our pearls of wisdom with you, our adoring readership. We’re glad we could help you out. Much like the rest of the commuting London population, we aren’t really looking forward to traversing what’s left of the underground network; however we are very much looking forward to catching up proper with our buddy and ally Chris Duncan this evening in order to talk about big-boy and emo-boy shit. Our current Track Of The Day – which just so happens to be called Colors, by a band called From Kid – is both calming in terms of dealing with our transport anxiety as it is uplifting in terms of our social engagements in equal measure. We are not sure where From Kid are, well, from. Given a quick scan of the ol’ socials, we detect that these two chappies have a teutonic twang about them. So we’re guessing Germany, or at least a German-speaking country; which is kinda cool given that we don’t think we chat about emerging music from those necks of various woods enough on this-here blog. Also it helps that the music is synonymous with the stuff that moves us greatly; a bit pop, a bit indie, and entirely mournful. To us this sounds like the singer from The Magic Numbers (HANWELL4LYF, and he’s called Romeo) manning vocal duties on a brilliant soundclash between Dry The River and Death Cab For Cutie. The video is mega as well. Watch.
