Odd the things you find now that humanity is dumping its combined knowledge of useless ephemera online. It’s as good a place as any for it, I guess. Exhibit A,  the video for the song “Nowhere Girl” by flash-in-the-pan band, B-Movie. My roommate Nick Mellor and I obsessed over this one in our study at

Magic Numbers – Kentish Town by rbanks. Well. It was good. We had to leave at 10:30pm, unfortunately, because our crappy train service finishes too early in the evening, but what we did saw was great. They’ve really grown to fill these larger spaces.

I’m excited to see The Magic Number tonight at the Kentish Town Forum. This will be the third time seeing them. We saw them at the same venue about a year ago, and before that at the much smaller Borderline, off Tottenham Court Road. That first gig was well before the buzz about them had started, and
