Morrissey/Moschino mash-up today; two of my favourite things
Had my weave taken out today… Meh. It’s weird to have such short thin hair but that’s what I get for ruining it with bleach over the years, I guess.
On the upside I found my long-lost Misfits t-shirt which I haven’t worn since April last year; so that was good.
Please excuse the hair/roots/general awfulness of the photo.
I don’t really feel qualified enough to be making “outfit of the day” posts unless it’s a special occasion and/or I’ve made an effort (which isn’t very often); as the only item of clothing I find myself buying heaps of, are various t-shirts. I have about four or five pairs of jeans and will usually throw them on with anything. I’m lazy, I know.
So I, instead of of making “ootd” (outfit of the day) posts, am gunna start making “totd” (t-shirt of the day) (or indeed even “totw” – t-shirt of the week – as the concept of changing my t-shirt every day is a little ambitious)
I love the Jesus & Mary Chain. If Scottish folk know one thing it’s how to make good music. I had a bad experience in Scotland when I was younger so there’s a running inside joke between me and my friends that “the only good thing to ever come out of Scotland is undoubtedly the music” (Jesus & Mary Chain, Teenage Fanclub, Cocteau Twins, The Associates, Belle & Sebastian, Aztec Camera, The Secret Goldfish, Idlewild, Arab Strap, etc. The list goes on and on.)
Obviously, the Scottish talent can’t quite match my affection for the English bands out around the same time – especially the Britpop ones – (particularly Pulp, Suede, Oasis, Supergrass, Elastica, Lush, and Blur!) but it comes pretty close. JAMC and Teenage Fanclub are two of my favourite bands of all time.
Anyway. “Psycho Candy” is my favourite, if not my second favourite record by the Jesus And Mary Chain (I can never pick between that and “Darklands”) but regardless, they’re both wonderful. “Automatic” and “Munki” also. JAMC are (I feel) quite underrated, so you should go check ’em out.
