There I was all smug because I managed to be on-the-ball enough to get tickets to see Múm at the Old Vic (well, to get Russ to get tickets) the day after I arrive in London. And then I found out about this, conveniently organized for when I’ve fucked off to Krakow. Not living in England any more really sucks.
When something sucks this much, only novelty mp3 downloads can cheer me up, which is why it was fabulous to have found:
- The Darkness covering Radiohead’s Street Spirit (look for the link on the page, I’m not sure if they’d like it if I linked directly to the file)
- 12 different versions of Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice including one by Stephen Hawking’s computer voice
- The Pixies doing Manta Ray live with the “HOO HOO, HOO HOO, YEAH!”s high and querulous rather than the rather more muscular tone they have on the record. (Okay, the last one isn’t really a novelty mp3, but I just generally have an insatiable appetite for all things Manta Ray.)
(I can’t exactly remember where I found the mp3 links, but I’m pretty sure they were from largehearted boy, which I increasingly realize I can no longer live without.)
