Right, Cex then

Posted: June 11th, 2002, by Chris H

Saw him at Sleazy’s on sunday. He’s good. Go see. No sitting at a laptop playing minesweeper. HipHop for folk who don’t own guns. Songs in praise of bikes. And funny. I liked it. Random Number, too, but his sound wasn’t as good – needed more punch on the beats. Maybe he needs a better soundcard. Computers, eh? Not rock and roll. “Love the songs guys but you need more, more ooomph…. here take this NoisyBastard 666 card.”

Back to fretting about the state of the world: Whither Glastonbury?, and there was an excellent report on suicide bombers in The Guardian this morning too. But I am smiling and care free because I got to use the word “whither”.

Chris was hit by a brick as a child and lost the popular culture part of his brain. This affliction means he is only able to listen to obscure japanese noise bands and watch films with overtly complex storylines. His other interests include skulking, editing documents, taunting policemen and entering undecipherable handwriting contests. He lives in an enormous underground laboratory where he spends many hours trying to un-invent television.
