Kele Okereke

I bought the new Bloc Party album, “Intimacy” a little while ago, and in my opinion, it’s their best yet. And hey, did you notice that the lead singer is hot as well? Double whammy! Kele Okereke – leads an awesome band, is hot, has British accent, and a voice like velvet covered in butter. Quadruple whammy. Plus, he was born in the 80s (just like us!) and his name is fun to say, like Tunde Adebimpe‘s. Pardon my incoherence and nonsense rambling, I’m on vacation alroi!? And I’m sitting here, five hours in the future, with Jon’s dog watching the UK version of My Super Sweet 16 (somehow just as bad or worse than the U.S. version) like a toolbag.

Bloc Party will forever be inextricably tied to Googly Eyes, if only because of the massive popularity of the single, “The Prayer” when we were in Dublin. The vid for that was pretty cool too. Since my brain isn’t really working, I’m going to let this skeet rely principally on photos and video. Or you can click on that wikipedia link up there. Let’s be honest, you aren’t here to learn anyway. Enjoy.

Also check out this video of Kele’s impromptu, a cappella performance of “This Modern Love” in a back alley of Paris. It’s quite lovely.

    ALSO, oh my gawd:
    Okereke also responded critically to comments made by Liam and Noel Gallagher of Oasis in early 2007. Liam called Bloc Party “A band off of University Challenge”, intending it as an insult, while Noel dismissed them as “indie shit”. In retaliation, Okereke stated, “I think Oasis are the most overrated and pernicious band of all time. They had a totally negative and dangerous impact upon the state of British music. They have made stupidity hip. They claim to be inspired by The Beatles but, and this saddens me, they have failed to grasp that The Beatles were about constant change and evolution. Oasis are repetitive Luddites.”

    I think I’m in love.
