[Lazy Blogger Alert! But I don't give a damn, shit, or hoot. I'm too effin exhausted from fretting over font styles and sizes. Today's is supposed to be "Georgia." And it's supposed to be bigger than the general, run-of-the-mill "per usual" around here. How's it look? I may or may not give a damn, shit, or hoot....]
Now, here comes this lazy blogger's lazy, cut-and-paste job:
"MONKEY SWALLOWS THE UNIVERSE are an acoustic indiepop band from Sheffield, centred around the original founding duo of NAT JOHNSON & KEVIN GORI, who formed the band in 2004. The band expanded in 2005 to include CATHERINE TULLY on violin, ANDY GEORGE on cello & ROB DEAN on drums."
On tour, they've supported the likes of RICHARD HAWLEY, CAMERA OBSCURA, and THE LONG BLONDES.
Nat's the singer, by the way -- and she's a "she." I'd describe her voice as "fetching." Funny thing about Brit lass singers, though -- no matter how prim 'n' pretty the pipes, one feels somehow certain that they're entirely capable of snuffing out a cigarette on your unsuspecting eyeball or twisting the business-end of a broken Guinness bottle into your unguarded groin if you cross them....
