Noise to Signal

At this year's Latitude festival, the surprise highlight of the comedy tent for me - outshining Bill Bailey and even just edging out a disappointingly brief Stewart Lee set - was Aussie singer/songwriter Tim Minchin. Apropos of nothing - well, rather, since it's shown up on Youtube for the first time courtesy of someone recording it at Edinburgh - here's the song with which he opened the set and immediately won over me (and, I think, much of the audience) : "Taboo". Audio-only, so they've stuck a picture of his FACE over it.

And if anyone sees a version of the song variously known as "Feminist", "Confessions" or "Boobs" online anywhere, let me know...

About this entry


My brother told me about this guy a few days ago, and I was won over with “Rock and Roll Nerd”. He’s awesome.
