Football and spotify

Just rearranged my study. Brought in my amplifier and two speakers, which had been redundant since iPod and Bose Sound Dock arrived. Combined with the wonderful spotify, this means I can work with music, and a wide variety of music, too. So, dear readers, what should I be listening to?

Played 11-a-side football today. We have an occasional team made out of the Wednesday night five/six/seven-a-side group I play with. I started off as sub, but came on after 20 mins to play right midfield. With the game at 0-0, a minute before half-time, the ball broke to me outside the area. I'm not short of self-confidence, so I had a crack at goal. To my amazement, the ball rocketed into the top corner of the goal, from fully 20 yards out, Gerrard style. Awesome. We ended up drawing 2-2, which isn't bad. We got thoroughly beaten by this side last year.

Nice goal! I know that feeling well -- played defensive mid for so many years, and scored probably 12 goals all told. But one I remember was from far outside the box -- in truth I was just looking to put one into the danger zone to test the goalie -- but I really ripped it and it careened off the cross bar and into the goal behind the goalie's back. We beat that much better team 1-0, and needless to say drinks were on me for a week.

For listening, I suggest Boards of Canada "Campfire Headphase" and one of those "Best ofs" from The Jam. Cheers.

Bob Harris' Radio2 Saturday night show always comes up with inspirational new music for me. Idlewild, Muse, Marc Cohn, Porcupine Tree are current muses.

If you're after widening your range (step away from The Feeling), recent records by the Jim Jones Revue (insane, rowdy old school rock'n'roll), Reigning Sound (louche country influenced rock from the US), your SW London namesake Jamie T (somewhere between the Clash and Lily Allen, if that makes sense) and the prog-disco of Phenomenal Handclap Band are all worthwhile in their way. And if you like noisy guitars and catchy muffled tunes Dinosaur Jr's 'Farm' is as good as I've heard in years.
And then there's the new F*ck Buttons album- splendid.
