Ever had one of those nights that made you think about giving up drinking? Lucy Spraggan says it leads her to Beer Fear. (DLYT) posted by notashroom (20 comments total) 8 users marked this as a favorite

 
I've never had a night that made me want to give up drinking. A few mornings, yes.

Usually quite good at spotting which bit of London such things are filmed, but not this. Probably the Hoxton/Shoreditch badlands. You don't get many places with a mix of disco floors, upright pianos, fixies, birds on skates and night buses.

Most unbelievable bit of the video? Such evenings, with which I may be culpably familiar, involve a creditable ratio of laughing one's tits off versus sulking into one's pint. This is as off-real as this was (how soon we forget), but not in as enjoyable a way.

Saw her doing a solo acoustic spot at the Good Ship in Kilburn not long ago. She's ace.

I'm extremely unhappy that her appearance on X Factor has meant she's been forced to remove her album from iTunes.

How dare an artist sell music directly to her fans? No, it must go through a middleman who takes most of the money.

Gah.

Watching her drink made me simultaneously want to drink all the things and anticipate how bad tomorrow afternoon will be.

Except for her strangely markered in eyebrows, she looks.. normal. I love that. Like Alyson Hannigan's younger sister or something. (I could easily develop a crush on her, no doubt!)

Her voice is quite nice.

I agree, motty. I didn't realize they'd forced her to pull her album.

Malice, I had a similar thought, that she is that sort of slightly-awkwardly very cute.

I was wondering whether or not you two thought she was cute. Good thing I stuck around to read the comments!

I discovered her via X-Factor on YouTube eight hours after her stuff was removed from iTunes and Amazon. SO PISSED OFF. Also because when it get re-released under whatever draconian contract the X-factor puts her into, she'll likely start seeing a lot less of the money from sales.

Other than that, I have much love for her. And I want her to write and sing a duet with JoCo.

And I do love her accurate drunk face in the video.

I watched the Beer Fear link first and actually thought it was Alyson Hannigan. This kept me watching way longer than I would have otherwise.

This doesn't remind me of Alyson Hannigan at all. But kinda Lily Allen and especially Kate Nash.

It's just her face.

I heard this song before on 6Music, which I listen to at work, not in the best of circumstances and thought it was ace. Nice to put a face to the song. And yeah, haven't we all woken up thinking who am I, where am I, why is there a clown in my bed and why is he cuddling me?

Not available in your country! Hahahaha!! I moved to America and thought this would go away. But no!

Apparently, it was filmed in that part of London called Buxton, where she's from.

Oh, and from looking on YouTube, she would seem to very much not be a one-trick pony.

This song is seriously sweet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRRWnp6_rhA&feature=related
