The band Muse is everywhere in London right now. TV, newspaper, internet, commericals. Its midnight and I am in London, watching a Muse interview on Channel 4. Muse TOTALLY Rocks! Their last album “Absolution” was incredible [see my blog post] and their new album Black Holes and Revelations maintains that high standard. The album is released tomorrow but I have been listening to it for a few weeks, thanks to an early release in other countries. And my mohawked son who will be seeing Muse perform next month at T in the Fringe.
Muse remind me of one of my all time favourite bands – Split Enz from NZ – who also dressed in black and white.
Matthew Bellamy, Muse’s lead singer and writer of much of their material, is an absolute GEEK and I love the guy!!!!! He talks a hundred miles an hour and his music, inspired by sources as diverse as 80’s rock and classical piano concertos, is absolutely unique. His lyrics are risky, bold, and layered beyond the comprehension of mere mortals.
