DJ Shakes_2006-04-18 (Brit rock)

http://hbshakes.blogspot.com
theme: mostly Brit rock

After going theme-less last week I felt like playing some Brit rock this week...and you'll see one French band sneaks in (I bet you cannot guess which one) and a partcular Irish one that I like (much easier to guess)

As an interesting sidenote, the Belle & Sebastian song "The Boy With The Arab Strap" is a bit bizarro because it's about the lead singer (the "boy") of another group called the Arab Strap. So it's literally a song about a another singer. Kinda weird. Moreover the Arab Strap guy wasn't particularly pleased about it.

If you're trying to guess which song is by a French group...it's towards the end, Phoenix. If the song sounds familiar it was also used in the movie "Lost In Translation." Cheerio mates! Enjoy, and remember, always Mind the Gap.
