1921: Mystery of the Senate Bath Tubs

The story of one of the quirkier features of the U.S. Capitol.

Quote

"So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do. It also won’t do in your essays."

#TBT: Everyone’s Mad for Manchester

A dark and drizzly mecca for musicians who come from working class backgrounds and want to escape via music, Manchester has been a break-out scene for all kinds of British artists who reached international success including The Smiths, Oasis, and the Stone Roses. Manchester was also the electronic music hub for 24 Hour Party People-esque decadence. Some of the coolest musical artists are still coming out of Manchester, including post-punk babes PINS and art-rockers, Dutch Uncles. Listen below.

Check out our London mix from last week and keep up with the UK Takeover of Nixon Music by following #BritishInvasion.

Well-timed stuff from Nixon Music on the heels of Manchester City winning the Prem! Good job, mates.
