I dislike the radio. I only listen against my will. But, for the second time in a week, I am listening by my own free will. Both times have been to hear Alessi. I don’t know, maybe there is good music on the radio? Although, when we used to listen at work the only good thing was Alessi. I don’t remember hearing anything else good. Oh actually, that’s a lie… they had Woodpigeon on once. Probably a few other good things too, but mostly rubbish and stuff that makes me want to die (like Kaiser Chiefs ew ew ew). Never any Scary Mansion or Wildbirds & Peacedrums or anything (awesome) like that.
So today by the Bandstand conversation somehow turned to Alessi. Thomas from team Bandstand Busking mentioned Alessi was on Jonathan Ross. I thought that was INSANE and awesome. I thought he meant the TV show, but then it was soon revealed that it was radio. So I voyaged onto BBC iPlayer to hear it. I had to skip through the 3 hour session to try and find Alessi’s part. She’sabout 2 hours and 20 minutes in, after some awful cheesy hip-hoppy track. She does Over The Hill.
Jonathan Ross thinks Alessi sounds a bit like Bjork. Uhm, ok. Listen here.
