Napoleon – I Try To Despise The Ugly People (But The Beautiful Ones Keep Turning Me Down)/I Love My Baby (But If Anyone Touches Her I’ll Kill Them)

Peter Beardsley Napoleon Ugly People

As long-time readers will be aware, we here at ILB are pretty much dead inside and experience pleasure in very little these days. The occasionally lingering touch of the hand of some bitch who’s recently friendzoned us, andPhileas Fogg’s Salsa With Mexican Chilli Tortilla Chips, are pretty much all we have left. That and confusions about two bands who have the same name. Read more…

Stuff I should have reviewed earlier #3: Spencer Moore – Spencer Moore

November 8, 2008 Leave a comment



As stated previously on ILB, the life of the freelance music hack is mainly one of realising that nobody gives a flying shit what you actually have to say, least of all the people actually making money out of the stuff you sweat guts over. So quite often reviews get lost to the ether. We at ILB think that’s a shame. We especially think it’s a shame when we’ve been writing the same blog post for three days now as a draft, and keep repeatedly deleting it when we realise there’s no jokes or points of interest in it. Maybe you’ll get it tonight. In the meantime, here’s a review of Spencer Moore’s eponymous debut album…

Albums that I probably should have reviewed this year #2: Tanya Morgan – Tanya Morgan Is A Rap Group

October 18, 2008 4 comments

Those of you fortunate enough to not be music writers will be unaware of how often reviews get bumped, dropping, or simply ignored. This can be for any number of reasons: the site has too much content, editorial confusion, incorrect tone of piece, or just the fact that it isn’t another fucking article about the Foals. Here at ILB we’re happy to present the following review of Tanya Morgan’s “Tanya Morgan Is A Rap Group” which was written for, but didn’t appear in, Drowned In Sound earlier this year. Read more…

Hello Saferide is back, back, back

There’s always a danger when praising the work of Hello Saferide’s creative force Annika Norlin that you’ll slip into the kind of music criticism that amounts to little more than “Please touch my penis, quirky-but-cute Swedish indie girl”. Some people can manager it. Most can’t. Read more…

Make-up and stickers and ponies and the week in Laura Barton #1

September 6, 2008 2 comments

Ich Luge Bullets, recently described a “hideous cunt“, has always been one to shout out the rich tapestry of talented, hard-working, insightful, and completely unwilling to take advantage of nepotism and the school tie network members of the UK music press. But we’ve all got jobs to go to, bills to pay, a hustle to get on: you’re not going to get the chance to read every single piece that gets written week in, week out.

Therefore, we here at ILB are proud to present the latest exciting feature for this soon-to-be forgotten 200 hit a day blog, “Make-up and Stickers and Ponies and”, where we helpfully run down the week’s contributions to journalism by certainly my, and hopefully your, favourite music writer, married-to-the-game bon mot dropper Laura Barton of The Guardian.

Ten reasons that everyone loves Mark Ronson as both a recording artiste and a human being

September 3, 2008 Leave a comment

1. Mark’s an award-winner! Obviously, he’s won all of our hearts with his charming personality and fantastic music, but he’s also the winner of GQ Magazine’s 2008 “Alfred Dunhill Award”. You want to know why he’s won that award? Because he’s a “gentleman of independent or non-conformist words and actions”. You know what that makes him? A motherfucking MAVERICK. Read more…
