Why is Mike Skinner so pathetic in these video interviews? He's scrounging at straws about his stuff, dropping nonsense left and right. It must have been a white Christmas kind of morning. Now I like The Streets alright, mostly A Grand, but this guy's kind of a mess. Not Pete Doherty a mess (nor Courtney Love, stateside), but more like that guy who does coke and manages to get boring.
Now the Professor Green re-cast (?) of "When You Wasn't Famous" is top notch. Green's riffing on Skinner the whole time for being so arrogant and rich. Unfortunately, I can't find this version anywhere online except streaming it on Myspace (last resort!) Hopefully someone puts it on CD in the near future.

This is one of those times where I have to ask myself: self, why haven't you looked into the Tall Dwarfs before? I keep coming back to these minimalist rock bands; they're bearing and gritting it, bittersweet chocolate in our mouths.
