BARR – The Song Is The Single

Posted: May 17th, 2007, by Chris S

Can’t get enough of this, for all the hipster comparisons I read for Barr it reminds me of The Lapse or Pavement. Liking the video too which gives me chance to make my first contribution to the films blog.

Chris S

Chris lives for the rock and can often be seen stumbling drunkenly on (and off) stages far and wide. Other hobbies include wearing jumpers, arsing about with Photoshop and trying to beat the world record for the number of offensive comments made in any 24 hour period. He has been married twice but his heart really belongs to his guitars. All 436 of them.

    Pavement should sue – this guy even sings the word ‘conduit’!

    Besides, you only need one Barr in your record collection, and it’s not these guys.

    I’ll take my Barr without a side order of Dungeons & Dragons thanks. “Yeah, you’ll be singing that shit in the shower in 10 years”
