Party report + new 2CD set

I went to the party and wrote a review for the Marquee Moon Mailing List. Sorry, I meant to cross-post it. You can read it here:

(In retrospect, I should have said "erotic", not "pornographic"...)

And yes, the soundtrack was good too! Hell's even been sampled on Amil's "Get Down", which is cool to hear (and, as far as I know, that's the first time he's been sampled... anyone know of any others?)

I've had a chance to read some of Hot and Cold since the party - it's really outstanding. I read "I'm Not That Kind of Girl" last night, and a few lines in there almost made me fall of my chair laughing.

As for the new Matador release... CD2 looks excellent, and I can't wait to get a copy. On the other hand, CD1 could more accurately be titled "R.I.P.-off", but maybe that's just Matador's way of getting in on the spirit of war-profiteering (to tie into some other recent threads on this board, ha ha).

Anyhow, you can read Matador's press release here:

That aside, I gotta say: between the new book, the forthcoming Matador disc, and the new Voidoids track last year, it's really wonderful to see Hell back in the public eye again.

Scotch and soda!
