Has Marina made it at last?

As my weary friends’ll testify, I’ve been a longtime fan of Marina & the Diamonds, dragging people to see her at strange London hotels and far-off Bestival stages this year alone.  She’s long been hot blog property, and tipped by many more than me, yet there’s never been much suggestion of her making a public ripple. 

All that’s changing now, on the back of Mowgli’s Road – profiles on Friday in The Guardian and Metro intimate that she’ll be on most Tips for 2010 list (look out for Some Of It Was True!’s soon).  Good for her – she’s an eclectic, honest and charming talent.  And she regularly writes a fantastically opinionated and well-written blog (old/new) to go with her kooky alt-pop.  (By the way, yes: this is yet another case of a blog reminding everyone it was there first.   Such self-aggrandisement makes you sick, doesn’t it?!).

Unfortunately the forthcoming live date at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen has now sold out.  I’ll be sure to update when more Marina concerts are announced.
