New Mike Skinner video ***no awkward barz on the walk of stars***

Mike Skinner AKA The Streets and Ted Mayhem latest The Beats video where @skinnermike takes Twitter to a new and exciting level replying to his followers by video is a real nice treat for any one's peepers.
Amidst the soft bubbles created by Aromatherapy bath products, Skinner starts off by informing us that "Birmingham is not the same city I used to get robbed in". Urging his body in and out of the water teasingly he goes on to reply to @ClareThornhill who Tweeted that she is voting for Mike Skinner to have a star on the Walk of stars in Birmingham. He concluded that before he gets a star in Birmingham he should get a star in cyberspace. *

Does anybody know why it is that soap kills the bubbles in your bubble bath? Strange but true!

London born, Irish raised singer songwriter Maverick Sabre is breaking the mould and this is why you are going to be hearing a lot more from Marverick on LikeTheSound.
With his soulful voice and skillful guitar playing, he draws audiences in and leaves them in wonder.


Silencing crowds with his lamenting social-political content, this young rising star is generating a lot of interest from press and booking agents alike. Recently tipped by Hot Press as being the Irish newcomer who will give the established artists some serious competition, Maverick was also nominated 'Best Homegrown Act' in the 2008 Urban Takeover Awards.

Casting Down Your Pod - Beat Stevie with Mike Skinner and Ted Mayhem is an interesting, comical, occasionally (seemingly) irrelevant and often outrageous view of the news and current affairs of the world around us by Mike Skinner and Ted Mayhem layered between respectfully decent and pretty damn awesome music of all genres and era's.
Casting Down Your Pod is unpredictable but one thing is for sure, you MUST NOT MISS AN EPISODE!

We are currently on Casting Down Your Pod 3, here are the download links so far ...

*** The Streets – Trust Me *** New video

Old song, new video, said Mike Skinner AKA The Streets. Trust Me isn't a brand new song, Skinner gave a sample of Trust Me to his followers via Twitter last year and took it on the road with him live. It was highly popular with re-mixers, one of my favourite of those being the Calzo Houdini Remix, you can listen to it here on YouTube Trust Me - The Streets - CalzoHoudini Remix 
Trust Me was also massive with DJ's and students and today it sounds as fresh as the day it was born.

Trust Me is immediately recognised by the hearty, soulful backing vocals, crucial beats and clever bars ... I see Alice in Wonderland, I see Malice in Sunderland, Mouse to house, I love this land, The where without, it's Thumberland.
The video version of Trust me is quite a bit shorter which is a shame because there are some really great lyrics missing - Why is there so much noise, Reading info, buying toys, We all fear of company, But we are fierce anonymously, Into shit on the Internet, Clashing people, chatting evil, But we are cheery social sorts, With the pleasing photo forward, Pass the love around and back to me, Walking down a madman's street, The music in my ears is fleeting, Struggle to shuffle to the same beat, We are nothing if not nice, We have a pretty buttered knife, Is the skyline sliced up into pieces and broken steel and strife, Anything you tell me, Yes, yes, I will believe, But again and I suspect, Again and I will leave, Slow burn a little heaven, Roaming yearnings for devon, Coburn '67, Don't work for them, Trust me. - perhaps they will remain for the album version?
Mike Skinner did suggest last year that Trust Me was safe for the new album - only known so far as Computers and Blues - lets hope so.

While we are on the subject of which tracks will essentiate the new Streets album, I'm really holding out strong for Roof of Your Car, Love light of my life, Where my heart has beenBlip On A Screen, Outside inside and Infamy.

The video is great, with beautiful close ups, bars, fat cigars, take-aways, galleries and Stellas. It has an underworld feel to it like scenes from a modern day Pacino or De Niro film but more Arty and with brief appearances from The Music's Robert Harvey who has been working with with Skinner in the studio earlier this year and Ted Mayhem, there's lots to see in this video, it's a real treat.
