"Who's this lairy fockin' twat bellin' me from a private number like?"



I did a thing on Busy Signal for this week's NME so don't be surprised if you soon start hearing flocks of Pigeon Detectives fans talking in a cod-Jamaican accent about giving private callers the brush-off.

They took out my line about Wiley working with "warbling bakery shop assistant" Kate Nash and the word count is so small there wasn't room for many quotes (I might put up the transcribed interview – it's pretty funny) but it's worth picking up alone for the shot of Busy looking like his forehead is covered in dried-up hairspray (you'll know what I mean when you see it).

you've never said a nice thing about NME before, now you're doing a piece for them.
where's the professional integrity?

I don't understand this blog entries title tbf.

the pigeon detectives are from leeds. the title is a terrible impression of how a kid from leeds might complain about receiving a call from a private number (a topic discussed in depth in one of busy signal's songs).

it's high concept stuff.

tell them there's a new genre cross breeding mavado and nu rave which all the kidz are into and they'll give you 5000 words and the cover

It's safe to say the post title was an utter failure

it's also safe to say someone will have been checking back all day to see if their comment got a reaction.
