description:
These artists are not all connected through personal or even musicianly connections, and in fact a few of the connections are rather far fetched. However, I saw most of these connections right away, so they can't have been too out there.

Mostly it's yummy musics all connected in one way or another.

Track 8 from Bang Bang Rock and Roll

Year: 2005
Track Description:
Pete was, I believe, insinuated to be an inflatable penis once by Eddie Argos, lead singer of Art Brut. It might have been someone else, I often confuse names that people call Pete because there are so many. Art Brut also played a few shows with the Libertines before they split up. They seemed to get on well enough then.

The Level 21 Badge badge
The Level 21 Badge
You're finally legal! Huzzah! We all know you've been boozing since you were 13, but don't worry, we'll keep quiet.

Now, get off the damn computer and go hit up the bars.

Level 24
As blur are my favorite, I might have picked a different track (though Song 2 is as brill as they come) just to play up that final connection, perhaps Country House where they call out Oasis in the lyrics "He's got Morning Glory and life's a different story." But no matter. You dropped knowledge like Newton dropped the orange. V for V
