But that’s pretty much where the similarities end.
Their latest album, From the Word Go, is a bloody brilliant mix of thrilling, catchy and insightful genre-mashing songs and definitely one of my favourite albums of the year so far. ‘Jean is Planning an Escape’, ‘Looking for a Long Term Thing’, and ‘Tomorrow is Too Late’ have been shamelessly on repeat on my iPhone all week. (For a great interview with the band, click here.)
HOWEVER, The X-Factor is also on on Saturday night. I’m also shamelessly hooked on that, and really want to watch it. And I know what you’re going to say – it repeats on a Sunday (or maybe you were going to say ‘You’re a big saddo, get thee to the gig, there really is no contest, MJEX win every time’?), but I have plans on Sunday.
Now, up until this point I was penniless and broke, so the gig was out of the question. But I got paid today.
And here comes the indecision…
I reckon this is the perfect opportunity to try out the handy new WordPress poll feature to ask you, oh wise friends, what you think I should do.
Thank you in advance for your advice!
