The Hobbes Fanclub and Kay Burley's second ringpiece

Ain't technology grand? For, if it were not for electronic mail, and the like, then we wouldn't have a band like The Hobbes Fanclub, who make the sweetest indiepop you'll hear until next Tuesday.

Seems like this band are based in Bradford and San Paulo. Has there ever been a band based in these two cities? I very much doubt it. Still, tapes pass backwards and forwards over continents and Leon Carroll and Fabiana Karpinski manage to make pop music that gives you the sort of defiant feeling that you only come close to when listening to music. Also, 'Outside Myself' features perhaps my favourite guitar solo this year. Top of the pops!

You better know it immediately.

And if that isn't good enough for you, then you can watch Murdoch's favourite puppet, Kay Burley, getting a second arsehole ripped by fucking Chris Bryant, of all people.
