No news

No news to report here.

Anyone who doubts the ability of newspaper proprietors to entirely dictate the pace of public discourse will surely be revising their views today with the contrast between Coulston / NoTW hacking 1,000s of mobile phones (yesterday's news!) and long sagas of Damian McBride talking about the possibility of a bit of political black-baggery / BBC having to deal with a bit of over-the-phone rudeness to an ageing actor.

Kinda makes the previous post here look a trifle optimistic, dunnit?

So, instead, here's a link to The Boomtown Rats' 'Someone Looking At You.' They were actually a not-bad band towards the end. The whole Mondo Bongo LP is very good, and quite overlooked perhaps because it's bookended by the bigger selling earlier hits and Geldof's post-Rats big noise.

Hurts Hurts is standout from that one.

Might get interesting again if anyone gets them into a court room, though.
