4.0 out of 5 stars Going For Gold!, 23 Mar 2009
This review is from: Santogold (Audio CD)
I bought this on the strength of having heard a couple of tracks on Santogold's MySpace page and have not been disappointed.

The album kicks off with one of the best singles of 2008, 'L.E.S. Artistes', and manages to keep up the pace throughout.

It's an intelligent mish-mash of musical styles (and even reminds me of Musical Youth in places!).

I highly recommend this, as it's one of the best albums of 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars DeadSexy, 29 Oct 2008
This review is from: Aching to Be (Paperback)
This is an amazing book! As soon as it arrived in the post, I started reading and I couldn't put it down.

I bought this as a fan of Scarce and learned a lot I didn't previously know about the band. That said, I don't think it's just for Scarce fans - I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in music biographies.

If you're looking for the car-crash quality of a good rock 'n' roll biography, then this has it all (bar the all too predictable, premature death - although Chick's brain aneurysm comes pretty close).

Overall, I think the book is really well written (although there were a couple of typos) and Joyce's account is honest and raw.
