It has now been 3 weeks since I gave up listening to Belle and Sebastian for Lent. Precisely why I decided to mark a religious festival to which I have no affiliation, I do not know.
But mark it I did.
I have managed to so far successfully avoid listening to Stuart’s soulful tones, which is quite a surprise as I thought I would miss them terribly. I also gave up listening to Camera Obscura as I thought withdrawal symptoms would kick in. Apparently not.
It has meant I’ve been able to listen to and discover an absolute CRAPLOAD of new bands. So many that my brain is buzzing with the excitement of new sounds. It’s like crack. Beautiful, musical crack.
In fact, I’m quite annoyed that I’m typing this at work and I’m not at home, beavering away on last.fm. GodDAMN.
