At school I was known as Mazzy S by some of my colleagues. Never really asked why. I just accepted it and moved on.

One day someone said “Ah Mazzy S, like Mazzy Star”. I queried them and they explained that Mazzy Star was a band. I asked if they were progressive rock and got told that they weren’t. So there ended my interest in them.

Spin forward a few years and Mrs-Soon-to-Be-Ex-Gnomepants mentioned that she liked a few songs by Mazzy Star. So here was my chance to find out what they were like.

Imagine being really depressed. At that depressed level where you are sat in a bar on your own staring at your shoes and wishing the world was a nicer place. Then imagine the bar owner getting really upset at you not buying any drinks and to get out of the place as he doesn’t open for another five hours or so.

Well Mazzy Star is like that.

Cold. Uncaring and shoegazery. I am not a hipster.
