Этот пост – о неизвестной лондонской супер-группе Danny Valentine & The Meditations, которая, уверен, будет интересна тем, кто на дух не выносит всех этих заносчивых британцев от Oasis, Muse, Radiohead до Patrick Wolf, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys. Патентованные маргиналы прекрасно меня поймут…)

Danny Valentine and The Meditations formed today in South London. The core of the group is psychotic poet, D.H. Valentine, handsome drumsmith Jesus Hydes and ‘Devil in a Black Cab,’ K. Goff. They have been joined by various visiting musicians and have morphed into assorted insect-type forms and sounds. They make pop music and write poetry and are expert sandwich makers. They live in the 19th century and have a time machine that allows them to put digital things into the digital realm. They sometimes go to Goth clubs or Golf clubs. One of them likes to jump out of planes and one of them is a plane crash.
Danny Valentine and the Meditations released their first single worldwide on January 7th 2008 – it is a double A side of Architect of My Love b/w Killing Floor and is available on itunes and on seven inch vinyl’.
