a single man

i went to see 'A Single Man' the other day. it is official, Tom Ford is a genius. the storyline is incredible and touching and the acting is great. Colin Firth's BAFTA was well and truely deserved, as was, the cute as ever, Nicholas Hoult's win at the Elle awards. this movie is visually stunning and i highly recommend you go see it. x


on saturday SPILL will officially be 1 year old! one year ago is when it all started in The Twisted Wheel. to celebrate yesterday we held a birthday party in the studio for our 2 hour birthday show with special guests Camille and Laura but don't worry if you missed it as you can listen back anytime here x

Futuristic Retro Champions are art students, turned pop music makers hailing from Glasgow forwardslash Edinburgh. They blast out feel good, stuck-in-yr-head-all-day, electro-pop tracks, which come accompanied by a bold Scottish accent from their songstress Sita Pieraccini.

They have supported the likes of Friendly Fires, The Vaselines and Ladyhawke (to name a few) and are well on their way to becoming huge. You heard it here first.

Check out their tracks here;

Recommendation: 'You Made My Heart' - my personal favourite.

Also come along to their EP Launch..

be proud

as well all know, yesterday was valentines day. hope you all had fun, 'cos i know i did. anyway, in Paris yesterday a group of 'peaceful protesters' took to the streets and organised a 'kiss in' as a way of showing their love for their partners, who happened to be of the same sex.

the kiss in was meant to be held at notre dame, but christian protesters found out and were going to interfere and attack the couples because they were gay. wtf? anyway this video is cute as fuck!
