Ganny McVagflaps Posted August 19, 2004 Share Posted August 19, 2004 I've been pimping Ted Leo for around two years now and now it seems that he's finally getting some heat. Spin seem to adore him (yeah - I know what you're thinking here) and Rolling Stone dig him too, and although the whole hipster Strokes crowd may latch on to him I don't care he's the shit. The guy is one of the best song writers out there. Think Billy Bragg, Paul Weller, Joe Strummer and Alex Chilton all spooging into a cup then fucking it into the virgin Mary and you've got it. His new record is coming pretty soon Lookout! have posted a track from it and there's a listening party/gig in NYC on the 25th that hopefully I'll be able t'go to. Anyways - any one else been converted - or even unimpressed by Ted Leo....? so all the way east to novi-sad/where nary a bridge was to be seen but mother russia, she laid her pontoons on down/so i crossed over, if you know what i mean... then on the road to damascus, yes/the scales, they fell from my eyes, and the simplest lesson i learned at the mount of olices: everybody lies. and the french foreign legion you know they did their best/but i never believed in t.e. lawrence so how the hell could i believe in beau gest?
