I went to Coventry today, not for a fun day out or anything, but for an open day at its university. This time of year is very busy for me. I’ve got my A-Levels in the summer, two months and a bit to be more precise, and those exams basically decide whether my life is over or if it has only just begun. Coventry was alright. The weather was a bit shitty, but the place was nice and nothing was extremely bad about it.
Coventry is in England, which is also where London is. South West of London is the ‘large suburban town’ of Twickenham, where Mystery Jets come from.
Mystery Jets were much more popular during the mid-noughties. They’ve faded out quite a bit in the past few years, but it was in 2006 (2006 again… see?) when they burst onto the scene.
‘Alas Agnes’ is the penultimate track from their album ‘Making Dens’. It’s got a very pantomimey, showtime kind of vibe to it, like the last number in a musical; that was probably due to its music video and the subject matter.
The narrator thought he fell in love with a girl, but he can’t tell whether it is a girl or actually a boy. His mind was in such a swirl, his mother shivered with fright.
The narrator eventually got dumped. He harms himself with cigarette burns. Although, he still can’t help but reminisce about that sweet transvestite butt.
Oh, Mystery Jets. Surely there must be a musical about that. I would see it.
It seems I only have American and British viewers on this blog, and some from Germany too.
Until next time.
