...I was wrong. About music. Again. (I'll ruin my reputation if this carries on.)

So yesterday we're in the Purple Turtle and between the reggae and the small boys trying to be punk and the truly awful gurn-metal cover of 'Enter Sandman' there's suddenly this song that sounds like Goldfrapp being seduced by a group of guitars (and then thoroughly fucked and thrown out of the hotel room afterwards, no less).

I'm impressed. And, well, kind of embarrassed. Heh.

The song's 'Do It Again', if you're curious. It's really quite good. ~s~ Oh well, I suppose I can't get everything right...
