Sweeping the Nation "Noughties By Nature"


Just a quick update to let all you all know that "Sweeping The Nation" are presently spending the rest of the year looking back at some of the best tracks of the Noughties, with contributions from other folk included.

Naturally, I've chipped in a few suggestions (starting with David Cronenberg's Wife here) and there's plenty of other people also pitching in with artists as varied as Jarvis Cocker, Girls Aloud, The Avalanches, The Hold Steady, Bright Eyes, and Kate Nash. Plenty to savour there, and also enough to shout abuse at the screen about too, I'd say. What more could you possibly want from a comprehensive list of various tracks which were released in a certain timeframe?

Sadly, no mention of The Vengaboys, David Sneddon or even Howard Brown yet, but I'm hanging on with hope and confidence that somebody will do the right thing.

I do hope that you're joking about The Vengaboys and David Sneddon. Please tell me you are.

Oh right, but you hope I'm serious about Howard Brown? Such twisted priorities...

True story - I once attended a wedding where the waiters arrived with the dinner dessert whilst dancing in a train formation to the sound of The Vengaboys. There were sparklers placed in the desserts, and let me tell you, it was quite a spectacle.

The above anecdote will not be placed on "Sweeping The Nation" anytime soon, however.

Howard Brown is a proper star, you know. I wonder what he's doing now. Sigh. Still working for HBOS?

That must have been some wedding...
