-Bloc Party tear up SXSW (and later release the carnage as a live EP)...get realised as Simpsons characters (by a fan anyway)...complete a huge US/Canada tour.
'Cain Said To Abel'! Amongst all the b-sides released this year, this was perhaps the most reassuring...reminding us that the Bloc could still do their unique brand of frantic angular rock and record possibly the best spoken word bridge in the history of music, like, EVER. [Download]
Other stuff: - 'I Still Remember' UK single released (charts at #20). - Not on your Nelly...BP cover Nelly Furtado's 'Say It Right' in the Radio 1 Live Lounge...download. - Bloc Party get mashed up with Coldplay, Phil Collins, Gwen Stefani et al. The results? Decide for yourself!
