So Tough! So Cute! feat Ben (Fire Escape Talking, UK)

Ben Fire Escape Talking Länk till Last.fm event Fin indiepop för flickor i Lego-frisyrer, polkadot klänningar och för mycket böter på sina bibliotekskort! Kaxig girl-group för pojkar i alldeles för oregerliga luggar som aldrig lyckas få flickan till att fika som en flicka och inte bara som en vän! Kvällens gäst-DJ är Ben från London som beskriver sig själv såhär: "In a music journalism career writing for the NME and Melody Maker among many others, Ben was pinned to the floor of a London hotel by a naked "Evil" Jared Hasselhoff from the Bloodhound Gang after calling the bodybuilder and guitarist a "pussy" for biting the heads off dead animals rather than live ones; he was once wrestled on a sofa by all three members of girl group Atomic Kitten; and a young lady of the genus "indie" offered him sex if he gave Terry Bickers' (ex-House of Love) band Dark Star a good review. Ben declined. He has high standards in music. Or what Tim Hopkins of The Visitors calls the "best record collection of indiepop in England". Since leaving music journalism for a proper job with a regular income, Ben has written Fire Escape Talking, what Harvey Williams of Another Sunny Day describes as "the indiepop blog most widely read by the coolest kids". In his spare time, Ben trains hard in the expectation that drinking will one day become an Olympic sport." -- Tack allihopa som kom!
