Kiss with a Fist

I’ve been listening to Florence and the Machine’s CD in the car a lot … it’s quite dark but very good indeed.

What could be better than two-minute, three-chord rock & roll? (OK, one-minute, three-chord rock & roll, but Dylan’s ‘Jet Pilot’ isn’t available.)

  1. Hi Brendano; how’s tricks? Not sure about this Florence babe; she’s sort of like a Tori Amos, who I love, but in a more steely, sturdy version. I loved her performance on the Brits with Dizzee Rascal though. πŸ˜‰

  2. Hiya Claire. Tricks are very good. You?

    It’s a beautiful day here, but I have too much work and will have to work all weekend, and possibly all next weekend too. But never mind. Mustn’t grumble (as you English people say ;-)).

    Can’t say I ever listened to much of Tori, but what I heard was good, I thought.

    Here’s one by FATM you might like (embedding disabled).

  3. Thanks, Brendano. Btw, that “well I never” sounded quite Welsh. πŸ™‚

    Happy Saturday. Have a bit of Christina Aguilera. Love the gospel vibe on this. Just going out to play and this is the first on my current bike playlist. For a white woman, she sounds quite black – which is a compliment!

  4. Thanks, Jan … I enjoyed that. Now that you mention it, I can hear Scott Quinnell saying ‘well I never!’ in my mind’s ear. πŸ™‚

    Hope you enjoyed the biking. I’m stuck inside for most of the day, but will probably do a spot of messing about in the garden.
