Buffet’s Butlins Tracklist

Hope you enjoyed the Buffet Christmas special, which had nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever. Instead we dedicated a whole hour to our recent All Tomorrow’s Parties road-trip to Bowlie 2, curated by Belle and Sebastian. We saw bands we love and have featured before on our show, as well as loads of new (to us) music. Here’s what we played:

The New Pornographers – Mass Romantic
School of Language – Rockist part 4 (as performed by Field Music)
The Vaselines – Son of a Gun
Silver Columns – Always On
The Beatles – Helter Skelter (as not performed by Them Beatles)
Dirty Projectors – Stillness is the Move
Foals – Spanish Sahara
Jenny and Johnny – Big Wave
Phenomenal Handclap Band – 15 to 20
Mulatu Astatke – Mulatu
P J Harvey – 50ft Queenie (Jenny’s fantasy-festival curator)
Belle and Sebastian – Write About Love
Franz Ferdinand – Jaqueline

Our next ‘normal’ Buffet is on New Year’s Day at 5pm. Join us for a 2010 review (of sorts).

Twee(t) Blog – the Buffet Triumverate Visit Butlins for Bowlie

So the Buffet Belles had a fabulous time at All Tomorrow’s Parties’ Bowlie 2, curated by Belle and Sebastian; but we are far too busy to write up a proper blog – so here are our tweets from the event instead.

You see musicians hate to be pinned down and pigeon holed. But on The Show we are all about the holes that the pigeons live in. Thus I have asked a variety of musical guests what they would class there music as.  It seems a common occurrence for these bands to invent their very own genre in effect rendering the pigeon holing technique employed by myself useless, but given the fact they have just made something up they may as well have just used the band name and called it the genre right? The musicians may think they have won, however in order to create something original they have had to go to some lengths and say something like ‘post new wave inspired foke indie’.
