This week marked the first live edition of Too Much Too Young since the dissolution of The Dream Team (a.k.a. my good self, Joel and Pat). In an unprecedented step I spent a week notÂ ectstacially enthusingÂ about, nor playing, anything related to young Bradfordian heroes No Garden, One Dragon.
Instead, with the help of my colleagueÂ Matthew Blakey, the show looked at the positively 80s feel of cinema offerings this week – the actionÂ movie parodyÂ The Other Guys, theÂ 25th anniversary of Back to the Future andÂ the sequel to the seminal 1987 film Wall Street.
Music-wiseÂ TMTY tried to stick to the remit set by Joel White during his five incendiary years of helming the show by mixing fresh and upcoming acts with more unusual and obscure choices. The running order for this week was as follows:
Hello blog world!
This week, Katie and Jen of The Show spoke to Rory from bright young thingies, The Kabeedies. He was very tired and in a miscallenous Travel Lodge (oh, the trappings of fame). We mostly talked about Twitter, which is always entertaining as neither Jen nor I really ‘get it’. The Kabeedies are playing at the trend central venue that is Nation of Shopkeepers in Leeds on Thursday 7th October – they are a most excellent live band with enough energy to keep a medium sized town (perhaps Ipswich) alight for at least 2 hours, i.e they are rather good.
sometimes they wear more clothes
We also talked about the AMAZING Constellation Festival happening over 2 days at Leeds Uni on 13th and 14th November – excellent line-up featuring Local Natives, Liars, Fout Tet and Broken Social Scene.
Here is what we played –
– Kap Bambino – ‘Red Signs’ (Single, 2008)
– Musuem of Bellas Artes – ‘Watch the Glow’ (Single, 2010)
-Kabeedies – ‘Palindromes’ from the EP ‘Ten Animals I Slam in a Net’ (2008)
-Broken Social Scene – ‘World Sick’ from the Album ‘Forgiveness Rock Record'(2010)
-Young Blood Brass Band – ‘Nuclear Summer’ from the album ‘Is That A Riot?’ (2007)
-Kabeedies – King Canute’ from the EP ‘Ten Animals I Slam in a Net’ (2008)
The Show goes out at 6pm on Saturdays, is repeated on Tuesdays at 1pm and will see you soon.
