Crystal Castles on Skins



With music TV dead in the water, maybe this is the way forward. Get bands to play on your favourite TV shows or films. The best example of this must still be Nick Cave's on-stage thoughts during Wim Wenders Wings of Desire which ought to have opened some floodgates. How difficult could it be to slip the odd member of Hollyoaks or Eastenders into the back of an Ice Bird Spiral gig? I'd have thought that the Ice Birds keeling, blurred, unheimlich sound might work really well as a backdrop to the latest Ishereallygoingoutwithher? trauma on the Square and perhaps better still if they played, unmentioned, in the background as a disorientated, blood-drenched, soon-to-be-Casualtied stab victim lurched around in the foreground, knocking over drinks and grunting into a mobile phone...

The Summer Special could always have that dozy pair from Hollyoaks in the City lurching around some Wolf Eyes curated noizefest in Austin.

In other news, Kempernorton's first CD is out now in all good shops (actually, from just the one, less good shop), though the bugger hasn't got round to sending me one to review yet...

Ice Bird Spiral would very much enjoy a cameo spot on "Holby City", preferably playing in the Physiotherapy Department - out of focus; barely in shot; almost inaudible.

We would also be up for playing a 5-minute set in the Children's Home on "Tracey Beaker." I'd also like us to appear in a re-run of "Robin's Nest."

Expect a collab. with Kempernorton at some point, soon as we've blunted our accordians.
