Go turn off your computer and do something less boring instead.

Now, The Guardian is a newspaper that I place a lot of credence in, but someone is clearly smoking crack there at the moment. I open up my Guardian Guide yesterday only to find someone claiming this very blog to be a "Superior music blog with lashings of disco mp3s". Now, for a quite level-headed, hip 'paper, this seems to be something of a glaring anomaly.

If you want to read a superior music blog from Manchester, check out Black Country Grammar, The Console, The Indie Credential, Hip Young Gunslinger, Best Foot Forward, Cosmic Disco, Just Press Play, Get Weird Turn Pro or Fat Roland, not this old thing.

But yeah, thanks Guardian, I'm chuffed really. Here's a disco mp3...

Chic - I Want Your Love (mp3)

Now you're just being a teensy bit modest. You thoroughly deserve your moment in the spotlight.

Well done, congratulations, etc.

We were quite impressed with the blogs they chose to mention. It's great stuff. Good writing about music is good writing about music.

Yeah, it's fantastic to get the recognition, it's just bizarre that they should choose Yer Mam! over the other great music blogs in Manchester. I must be doing something right. I'm glad Kate and Chris got mentions. Kate seems really chuffed by it.

Well done, James, it was great to see a lot of familiar names get the recognition they deserve. It certainly brightened up what was a fucking abysmal day at Leeds Festival.

Haha! Cheers Ledge. What was abysmal about it? The weather or the musical turns?

Skillz indeed James, i noticed that one myself.

Hey, well done. I was plugged by the Grauniad a couple of weeks ago. I would have been just touched to know some hack from The Guardian visited my blog, never mind being mentioned.

Ha ha ha ha, "lashings of disco mp3s". I love that.

Bit slow on the old uptake, but thanks for the mention. It's nice to be within two paragraphs of Chic.

Hi James.

Found out a few days ago that my blog was listed in this Guardian piece as well and has been shortlisted for the MCR Blog Awards. All a total surprise as I hadn't really mentioned my blog to anyone! Well as the cat's out it'd be nice if you felt like adding it to your blog roll. Knocking one up for mine now. Cheers, Ade (
