Apologies for the lack of substantial and nutritious content on SWSL of late - I'm not trying to make you feel like you're on the blog equivalent of a Slimfast diet, honest. It's a combination of work, evil heat and late-nights propped in front of 'Big Brother Live' that's turning my head into a sort of pulpy mess. I've written some whimsical stuff about amputation and runover cats, but I don't think the wider world deserves to be subjected to that.
So, just hang on in there. Next week promises a shift of gear with a major and more serious post that I'm currently concocting with a little help from some friends. There should also be reviews of the new Sonic Youth and PJ Harvey albums if they arrive in the post, as well as long-overdue thoughts on The Icarus Line's Penance Soiree, Explosions In The Sky's Those Who... and Broken Social Scene's You Forget It In People. In the meantime, take a peek at Kenny's views on Sonic Nurse and Uh Huh Her (as well as Morrissey's You Are The Quarry and The Streets' A Grand Don't Come For Free) here, and at Josh Timmermann's slightly disappointed review of PJ's latest.
