Ever since I saw this interview with this perfect example of a man - I knew a new Strokes album would be a long way off. As much as I love Julian's solo effort 'Phrazes for the Young', you must understand, I was somewhat disappointed in the news that I wouldn't be hearing the distinctive blend of fuzzed-up-indie-rock that the 5-some do so well.
But this morning when my Billy Joel 'For The longest Time' alarm on my Blackberry went off, I woke to some glorious news.
The Strokes have announced their first gig in over three years! They will be playing the Saturday night headlining slot at the U.K.’s Isle Of Wight Festival.
So fellow MWT contenders and judges alike - how about instead of V fest we do Isle of Wight?
