Lisa's first words to me this morning were "Beadle's no longer about!". She loves a bit of celebrity death. After her coverage of Heath Ledger's demise last week, I think she's angling for her own obituary column.

Personally I feel more like death warmed up, after very little sleep and a slightly trying day combining the twin joys of Brighton Council and a plumber. As a result, I don't really feel like going out tonight, which is a major tragedy because it means I'll miss this...

Cheese & Whine
Obviously I'll go to any rock concert which offers "FREE CHEDDAR ON ENTRY!", but this one is particularly appealing because it features The Deal Was For The Diamond, who I saw three months ago, and liked so much I plugged them (briefly) in a Kemptown Rag article. They've played a number of gigs since, but their performances have a habit of coinciding with personal crises of mine (what are the odds?) and I never seem able to make it. Which is why I knew the plumbing would go so well today.

Anyhoo, I don't know which advertising agency is responsible for writing the copy above, but I'm sensing it's not Saatchi & Saatchi. Admittedly I struggle to describe TDWFTD's music, but I'm not sure I'd call it "melodic / doom / math". And as for the third band (which I won't be shortening to an acronym), just what is "grindcore catfood"? And more to the point, can I feed it to Chloe? Because frankly she's gone right off Lidl Opticat.

Anyway, I don't think I'll make it to the gig tonight (it starts in five minutes and I haven't got my shoes on) but I can recommend Charlie Uniform's MySpace site. Fans of any kind of melody might be disappointed, but you won't hear better screaming this side of Halloween.
