    Great ruins make for greater glories
    It is true that in recent blogs I have been erring towards Grumpy Old Man attitudes. It must get a bit tedious having to keep reading how things ain't what they were in the eighties. To try to retrieve this situation I feel it is time for me to declare my deep, and deepening, admiration of modern pop combo the Kaiser Chiefs. Here they are:

    And in no special order, here is what I like about them:

    They have the spunk of punk;
    the wit of Wilde;
    the park-poet Englishness of Albarn.
    On disk they sound like they're really enjoying themselves;
    and live it's clear they really are.
    They're from Leeds.

    Ok, you can take or leave that last one. But at present I am very gratefully listening to Employment, over and over. It cheers me up.

    Oh ... and my parents love me
    Oh ... and my girlfriend loves me
    Oh ... they keep photos of me
    Oh ... that's enough love for me
