results tonight - Tonight:Franz Ferdinand
UK double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve.
2009 release, the third album from Glasgow-based modern rockers. Tonight: Franz
Ferdinand sees them taking a step back from the Post-Punk revival sounds that
gave them their breakthrough. With Tonight: Franz Ferdinand, the band are seen
to incorporate more disparate influences such as Jamaican Dub and elements of
Electronica. What remains of the old Franz Ferdinand is their knack for locating
a danceable rhythm and their gentle, deadpan humour. The choice of Dan Carey as
producer is in keeping with this new direction, the past credits of whose
include CSS and Hot Chip.
11/9/10 - Football and Me
Hair note: Don't know WTF was going on
tonight. Note to self - Check hair regularly during photo shoot! I bought
this film today. I have seen it previously through means that are, let's say
'shady'! To people outside the UK, it is a film based on English football (or
soccer, yuk!) manager Brian Clough and his turbulent 44 day spell managing Leeds
United. It is absolutely brilliant and I recommend it to you, even if you don't
like football. Michael Sheen is probably my favourite actor currently living. He
really has the vulnerability, arrogance and charisma of Clough down! For those
who know me well, it may come as a shock to you that I was absolutely MAD about
football as a kid. I was fucking hopeless at it but I ate, drank and slept the
beautiful game! The moment I fell in love with it, was the 1990 World Cup in
Italy. It was absolutely magical to me as an 8 year old. Then my Dad told me
that Southend (a nearby town to where I grew up) had a football team and were in
the 3rd division. He took me to see my first match on Boxing Day 1990. Southend
United v Bolton Wanderers. I remember watching for about 20 minutes before I
plucked up the courage to ask Dad which side was Southend! It was a bit of a
boring 1-1 draw on reflection but it was amazing to me at the time! I continued
watching Southend regularly until after a string of disappointing results in
1991, my Dad got fed up of having to lift my sad face! A few seasons later, I
asked Dad if we could start going again. Southend had been promoted to Division
2 and the new season was an exciting prospect. We enquired into getting tickets
for the opening game against Middlesborough. Dad nearly hit the roof when he
heard how much the ticket prices had gone up! As far as we were concerned, no
football match was worth much more than ?15 a ticket at the most. Even though I
wasn't raised in a typically working class family, we had been priced out of the
game. That was the beginning of the end. Unbeknownst to me as a young kid,
football was undergoing a radical transformation. Sky would soon be a dominant
force in the game, injecting staggering amounts of money into the industry.
Footballers would stop being accessible and their wages started rocketing up.
The introduction of the Premier League was the final nail in the coffin for me.
It still makes me wince hearing it to this day. The shameful money grabbing from
all sides of the game killed it for me. The magic had gone. The Damned United is
a wonderful reminder of a bygone era! If anyone was hoping to see some
outdoor photos today, I apologise. The weather was bloody awful here!
