Another fave of mine from probably the best album you have never heard!


The band's founding members were Chris Corner and Liam Howe, who then recruited Kelli Dayton in in Hartlepool, England in 1994. Combined with the fear of being identified with the fad for trip-hop acts (e.g. Portishead), Dayton was asked to leave the group, and Corner became the singer from the second album onwards.


Chris Corner left the band in 2003 and released two solo albums in 2004 and 2006 under the moniker IAMX titled Kiss + Swallow and The Alternative. Kelli Ali (Dayton) recorded her third solo album Rocking Horse at the beginning of 2008 and released it through One Little Indian late Autumn 2008. She is quoted as saying this is a very different affair to her two previous solo albums, Tigermouth and Psychic Cat. Rocking Horse was produced by Max Richter.


Seek out the first album 'Becoming X' from which this track was taken.




Which tube is it for Euston Station?


Have you ever asked yourself that? I can guess the answer, its likely to be the same as mine.

However, Microsoft seem to think we need help for this, from that not very useful search engine, thats recently been rebranded from Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search. Er.. Bing.


If you haven't heard of it, thats because its not so popular. Bing is the third largest search engine on the web by query volume, at 3.24%, after its competitor Google at 84.80% and Yahoo at 6.19%. A piece of trivia, Bing's official Chinese name is bì yìng ( 必應 ), which literally means "very certain to respond" or "very certain to answer" in Chinese. Neat eh!

Bing is marketted as the simple search engine.


Anyway back to Euston.... The launch advert for Bing in the UK asks this question. "Which tube is it for Euston Station?". Bing comes to the rescue in the marketting world to return the simple correct answer. Although in the real world, like you may have guessed, you would have been better sticking with Google all along.
