Has Dom been moonlighting as a baggage handler at Terminal 5?

of course he has another copy. its just a load of PR gumph aint it.

Was about to say the same. If it was really the case they'd be suitably embarrassed to not issue a fucking press release about it

DJ Mencap, Friday, 4 April 2008 14:04 (6 years ago) Permalink

Perhaps he did a song with Naomi Campbell and she wasn't too keen on it.

Dingbod Kesterson, Friday, 4 April 2008 14:24 (6 years ago) Permalink

Maybe the record label is trying to get extra compensation from british airways

Herman G. Neuname, Friday, 4 April 2008 14:31 (6 years ago) Permalink

That would be hilarious so I hope you're right

Anyone tech-savvy enough to make good electronic music knows to back shit up. What a jackoff.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Friday, 4 April 2008 14:45 (6 years ago) Permalink

yep, he is like some vile British public school James Murphy

Well, this song with Dizzee Rascal feat. Calvin Harris, it's quite good.

zeus, Wednesday, 11 June 2008 10:32 (5 years ago) Permalink

it's awful. the way the bassline so wants to be a classic bounce, and fails by so much, makes me cringe.

the lex is back??? wow.

that deadmau5 dub injects some life into his 'merrymaking' track which is one of those songs that has been completely overshadowed by the remix.

Hey, that Dizzee track is quite good. Calvin Harris revival starts here.

Ismael Klata, Wednesday, 9 July 2008 20:51 (5 years ago) Permalink

im happy that i dont live in the uk and therefore can pretend like the dizzee track doesn't exist

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 9 July 2008 20:54 (5 years ago) Permalink

the dude on the hook is the worst part about it actually

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 9 July 2008 20:54 (5 years ago) Permalink

I'm seeing this guy open for MBV in three months. Hm.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 9 July 2008 20:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

Dizzee or Calvin? I'm not sure either are obvious MBV opening acts

I disagree. Dizzee's vocal is phoned in, he switches between generic "electro" and generic "Indian" music in a way that just sounds lazily tacked-together, his own vocal is a cringe-worthy... it sucks, basically.

Calvin. Dizzee I've seen already, great show.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 9 July 2008 21:09 (5 years ago) Permalink

And what's with the Peter Beardsley do?

Bodrick III, Wednesday, 9 July 2008 21:12 (5 years ago) Permalink

i like his production for seb/roisin's "off & on" much more than i like "dance wiv me"

Keaney Tong, Wednesday, 9 July 2008 22:01 (5 years ago) Permalink

I just noticed Dizzee confessing that he'll "feel like a wally" if he doesn't pursue this girl - how can you hate that?

thought this said Calvin Johnson at first, thought "well, i agree, but it's too late now, isn't it?"

some dude, Thursday, 10 July 2008 13:38 (5 years ago) Permalink

I still like "Dance Wiv Me".

zeus, Thursday, 10 July 2008 15:59 (5 years ago) Permalink

dont mind this song anymore but the hook lets it down a lot.

titchyschneiderMk2, Thursday, 10 July 2008 16:39 (5 years ago) Permalink

ned YOU ARE FUCKING KIDDING ME - this guy is opening up for MBV in LA??!?!?!

a fucking travesty.

BATTAGS, Friday, 11 July 2008 04:01 (5 years ago) Permalink

The album's success led to him working with the likes of Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Kylie Minogue, for whom he wrote the forthcoming single In My Arms in his bedroom on a 15-year-old computer.

does this blurb annoy anyone else as much as it annoys me?

... for whom he wrote (insert song title here) for (Insert answer here) on a notepad he nicked from school twenty two years ago!

Mark G, Friday, 11 July 2008 09:13 (5 years ago) Permalink

i think this bears repeating:

"They have offered about £750 in compensation," said the spokeswoman.

"You can't really put a price on something like a new record."

Er, around £750 then? Also, hahaha that's fuck-all.

CharlieNo4, Friday, 11 July 2008 12:14 (5 years ago) Permalink

Dope zinging from British Airways officials, there.

Noodle Vague, Friday, 11 July 2008 12:17 (5 years ago) Permalink

i think it's kinda funny how calvin harris is all "give me praise! how come people aren't talking about my involvement in the new dizzee single!"
and it's like, well, cos no one likes you and we'd rather forget that you wrote some okay beats for once. plus dizzee's been reeling from his mercury music prize for so long, it's nice to see the fella doing well with one of his less-good singles.
whatever, i'm just bitter cos apparently i look like calvin harris.

horses, Friday, 11 July 2008 12:43 (5 years ago) Permalink

But he gets all the girls, he gets all the girls!
Yeah Calvin is pretty shocking but he's not as shocking as plenty of other artists. I say he should stop making music progressively and then quit altogether.

VeronaInTheClub, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:03 (5 years ago) Permalink

i went to a gig of his at the astoria earlier this year. it was SHOCKINGLY terrible.

(and i felt about 63 years old, which admittedly didn't help)

CharlieNo4, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:09 (5 years ago) Permalink

Why is this Dizzee's first number one rather than the BUGSY MALONE ONE?

People have taste in their arse.

Dingbod Kesterson, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:10 (5 years ago) Permalink

How soon we forget Band Aid 20.

Matt DC, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:22 (5 years ago) Permalink

^^This is true, so very true.

VeronaInTheClub, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:24 (5 years ago) Permalink

Band Aid 20 I excluded on compassionate grounds.

Giving a little help to the helpless

The stickman from the hilarious "xkcd" comics, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:27 (5 years ago) Permalink

Dizzee will never top 'I Luv U'. Calvin will never top losing his laptop.

blueski, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:29 (5 years ago) Permalink

^^Hahaha

But peoples; "There won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time (OH I WONDER WHY THE FUCK THERE WOULDN'T BE SNOW ON A CONTINENT THATS GOES THROUGH THE EQUATOR) Do they know its Christmas time at all?" Sorry that line always fucks me up.
I change my mind, Harris must quit but also Geldof should suffer somehow.

VeronaInTheClub, Friday, 11 July 2008 15:39 (5 years ago) Permalink

Don't get me started on the lyrics of Feed the World, it's disgustingly glib and misleading. And how about all that snow on the top of all the mountains in Africa?

surely not all of them

thought the new single was awful, but kind of coming around to it as i'm forced to listen to it once an hour at work. funny that I first heard it and thought 'how embarrassing, this is gonna tank'. shows what i know.

The Devil's Avocado (Gukbe), Wednesday, 15 April 2009 00:21 (5 years ago) Permalink

i thought this was gonna be refreshed because he stopped making music.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Wednesday, 15 April 2009 00:23 (5 years ago) Permalink

with a number one solo single, you'd better brace for more.
