Quantum Leap Year
Read post

We’re not really sure what happened. This week the Lollards went back in time to 2007 allegedly trying to rescue Tanya. Tanya herself called FT Towers yesterday asking for an explanation. I didn’t have one and then something strange happe[…]

IHM Lyric Watch – Robyn: Be Mine
Read post

I have already catalogued the extreme and somewhat unpleasant transformation of Robyn from novelty frog chart act to novelty Swedish pop star here. But it has been brought to my attention that even though she can be ridiculed for her po-faced persona[…]

IHM Lyric Watch- Kate’n’Ash – Foundations
Read post

Artistic collaborations are a bit of a mixed bag for me. Clearly Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney making Say Say Say was a black day in my book (though not as black as it might have been in the seventies), BUT it did mean that there were not two se[…]

Read post

a) a wonky eyed singer*

Read post

Yes I am back, and thank you for all your concern. I have been undercover in the Internet trying to destroy Radiohead’s In Rainbows from the inside. Unfortunately whilst in there I ran foul of the Master Control Program and lets just say I tak[…]

Tanya’s Music News Round Up!!!
Read post

In my never-ending battle against the evils of music, I occasionally come across allies who often are unaware of how helpful they are to me. Take the US Immigration services who have decided that The Pipettes are TOO DANGEROUS to be allowed into the […]

Tanya’s Who Do They Think They Are: 1: Robyn
Read post

Everyone knows that the hatchet faced Swede has not burst fully formed on to the UK pop scene with her number one hit “With Every Heartbeat”. Indeed she has been flogging the song for about a year, with the involvement of DJ Kleerup, who […]

  1. I'm not sure those exist. Perhaps a better way to phrase it would be "Happy to see Cerebus discussed again,…

  2. Thanks for writing these. It's nice to see some critical re-examination of the significant virtues of Cerebus, now that Sim…
