Tim Booth

I always knew George W Bush was only joking about being President…

Well, it amused me anyway. (I found it on author Peter David’s weblog.)

In other news, I ordered the new solo album by Tim Booth, former James frontman, today. James somehow passed me by in their heyday, but I’ve got really into them recently – mainly the classic albums Laid and Seven, which have some outstandingly good tracks on them. Hope his solo stuff is, well, any good.

I’m very bad at buying new albums, and especially at buying artists I haven’t tried before. For some reason I have a near pathological fear that I won’t like them, and will therefore end up with a crap CD in my collection. No idea why this should be an issue – half my collection is crap already. 🙂
