My Internet Junkie Overdose August 17, 2006

Posted by alexd in Music.

RIP Data PanikHaving been away for 2 weeks, cut off from the ever moving, ever hyping, ever flaming internet world. I had been suffering withdrawal symptons. But now back in blighty i was able to feed my unending addiction. And have just recovered from a fit of vomiting and shaking uncontrollably around on the floor with my eyes rolled into the back of my head, having scanned my bloglines feeds. I have also been trying to cut through all the podcasts I’ve missed, ridiculous amount of emails and soon the 3 episodes of Lost I missed.

Cuba by the way can be summed up in the way that for breakfast you could regularly find croissants (or what looked like) made of bread. Looks like very similar but tastes a bit more wholesome/healthier/different. The people do seem pretty happy (ignorance is bliss) though. the old throaty cars are brilliantly disfunctional antiques. We took a Taxi to Old Havana, and following lunch, walked past the same Chevrolet pulled up at the lights, with the old driver investigating the cause of his smoking engine.

Anyway, I have missed loads, and really can’t tell you everything thats happened. So here are the headlines:

The catchy synth poppers Data Panik have split

Beck’s Album is out in October

Albert Hammond Jnr From The Strokes Is Going Solo

I think the above will probably be rubbish as he always plays the simpler bits in the Strokes Songs. Nick Valensi always had the better bits.
