New One From The Streets

I am liking the beat on this advance single from The Streets. And I’ve got a small penchant for accents, esp of the English/Irish/Scottish variety (maybe that’s why I could watch So I Married An Axe Murderer over and over and over again?), hence I like to listen to Mike Skinner ramble on. He’s got a sense of humor (humour) and this track is good times. And, you know, in-depth, thought-provoking lyrics that really make you think, like “when you’re a famous boy, it gets really easy to get girls…it’s oh so easy…”

When You Wasn’t Famous” – The Streets

The single will be released March 27, and the new album ‘The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living’ is due April 10. Thanks to Zombies blog for tracking this one down.

  • cactus limey, you are so right. kind of a misnomer, but it just goes to show that people in the US always just say ‘a British accent,’ and so I guess i never stopped to think what that actually meant. thanks!

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
