Meeting No. 6 – 2007 Faves

To brighten those dark January nights, a QUIMS evening was convened at Dr Ps with the subject being your favourite tunes of 2007. Can we have stuff we first heard in 2007? put the cat amongst the pigeons and led to The Whos Baba ORilly making a surprised entrance (Roger bought it this year for £3.00 in Tescos) and a 70’s track by Gregory Isaacs (re-issued this year). After take away curry, there was a bracing start from Nick Cave (and the Grinderman boys) lamenting his inability to get a shag – topped later by Tits of death what a name for a band! My fave of the night was Daft Punks Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger especially after seeing this you tube video pure genius. John and I both brought along Siouxsies Love and Alchemy to play which has a wonderful gothic northern soul quality, and all the others brought along different Kings of Leon tracks.but none got played..Bob the Chiropodist

There was (predictably) nearly a riot in our house whe the troops found out that there was no Kaisers played so…… Bobs Family album of the year was the Kaiser Chiefs ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ which has had a permanent residency in the car stereo for all of 2007. Sally (2 and a half years old) shouts for “Rubbie Rubbie” any time we set off anywhere. Matty (4 and a half) loves the chanting in ‘Angry Mob’ but we have to fast forward it to 2mins 55secs cos he always shouts “This isn’t it” until the chanting kicks in, Lee (40) shouts along to ‘Heat Dies Down’ and Marisa (10) likes all of them – Me (43) I’m with Marisa. Saw them twice this year, Glastonbury and M.E.N. – excellent both times. Roll on Elland Road! Was just playing ‘Try your best’ in the car on the way back from the park in Otley and Sally says “This one is called ‘Monkey Jaw'” (!) – Great name for a band!
