Misty’s Big Adventure, a band with not very much money at all, are able to pastiche industry favourites Franz Ferdinand in a credible and reasonably hi-fi way, through the magic of the web. With a brief interlude by Noddy Holder, too. There’s videos for Hey Man on Fort Mark Films’ site too, and The Story Of Love, which contains dinosaurs, feral children, a meteor and Grandmaster Gareth in a white suit.
MySpace is already history when it comes to innovation. Look instead to what’s happening in its wake, at the phosphorescence and the jumping fish. That’s where the really interesting action will be in 2007.
