Too Much Too Young 30th December 2009

So… the noughties are almost over. Time for a review show!

Tonight we paid homage to some of the best artists of the year with songs from the likes of The Wave Pictures, Julian Casablancas and Blue Roses.  We also played one of the My Latest Novel tunes form their 2009 BCB session.  Plus KC’s films of the year and of the decade (number 1 was My Sassy Girl).

We also looked a bit further back and played a track from one of the classic albums of the past decade (A Postcard to Nina from Jens Lekman’s “Night Falls Over Kortedala”) and played an even older song (Why Bother? by Weezer) which sort of looks to the future as there is a Weezer tribute act called Stinkerton playing at the 1 in 12 club on new years eve. Though there is competition for NYE party of the year as at the playhouse there is also a “Decade Dance” event which looks ace. And there’s loads of great stuff happening in Bradford in the near future.

Bring on the tenties!
