There is something wrong with my internet again. I’m stealing the neighbours wifi but it’s slow going. Please bear with AMP during these testing technical times.

Tania Branigan reviews the singles of the week, 13th July 1996

God it’s a chilling thought that this ‘new’ incarnation of Suede is now 13 years old. I still remember the début live review where Richard Oakes, the new 17 year old guitarist, was described along the lines of looking like “an awkward teenager in Boots trying to buy condoms” and all I remember thinking as a 25 year old was, fuck; he looks sooo beautiful and perfectly cool to me. I wish I could have looked like that at 17. Or indeed 25. And obviously I wish I could look like that now at 38. But so does he probably. I only hope he’s fat and bald now so I can enjoy some retrospective solace.

And who the fuck is Tania Branigan? Well a quick Google tells me she’s migrated to The Guardian and seems to have dropped the frivolous world of rock and pop music journalism for serious political commentary. Well done Tania. And your hair’s better these days too.

Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

Mother of fucking God – look what happened to Melody Maker. Why didn’t they just set the title in Comic Sans and  have done with it?

WHO THOUGHT THIS MAKE-OVER WAS A MOTHERFUCKING GOOD IDEA? WHO!

This issue in response to a request from Paul in Leeds. Bennun’s interview to follow with further shocking Look-In style album reviews etc. following that.
