More Ex-Ex Elliott

Since my blog about Elliott school's musical alumni, another band, The xx, have hailed from the south west London comprehensive. Pitched, if you will, somewhere between New Order, the Cocteau Twins and Young Marble Giants – with a hint of electronica and R&B (so say Amazon), they're meant to be pretty good. An 8.7 from Pitchfork too.

Which reminds me (sort of): during a recent viewing of the dreadful Love Actually, Elliott school features prominently towards the end when PM Hugh Grant goes with chirpy Martine McCutcheon to see the Nativity Concert. So now you know.

Don't give me that - you love Love Actually. You weep in joy at it. And all other Hugh Grant films.

What nonsense.
