Hypernova

When did it become so awkward to paste a URL into WhineJournal? :(

Anyhoo, the URL above should take you to the splendid video for Hypernova's song Fairy Tales. Hypernova are no-shit indie rock band from the Islamic Republic of Iran. Now, rock music is considered by the Iranian government to be un-islamic, and thus is banned. However, acording to a CNN report this week, Tehran has a thriving underground indie scene. Their report featured the up-and-coming Yellow Dogs, but mentioned Hypernova as an Iranian act that had already broken through in the US. So, while I trackdown a Yellow Dogs video, please enjoy Hypernova and give them lots of Youtube hits.

Ryan Inglis

Ryan Inglis is a singer-songwriter we saw performing last night.  He was the interval act at Vamps Comedy Night in WsM.  His style is laidback acoustic guitar and bluesy vocals.  I bought his album, worth way more than the fiver he was charging.  Frankly, he was the highlight of the evening.  I'm looking forward to catching him at The Bottle Bar over the summer.
