I’ve had a few queries from visitors asking why the site hasn’t been updated for a while and well there is a simple answer for this – there is no actual news right now.
I tend not to post about any future album without it being confirmed – especially after the long break between FIOE and Angles which gave us a million rumours of a new record most of which turned out to be wrong!
For now all we have is speculation. This time last year Nikolai and Albert both hinted that a fifth record would be in the works early 2012. Fans have asked various people on Twitter like Albert Hammond Snr and Amanda de Cadenet and we have a vague idea that something is meant to be happening like now. Whether it is or not well The Strokes have always been very vague and secretive about these kind of things.
Here is the one thing we do know, Nick has been in NYC quite a bit lately and as far as I’m aware so have all of the other guys. So being in the same location is a start!
I know we all want a new album and this time a proper tour but I think we may have a wait until next year. Time flies already we are heading towards the halfway point of the year – the likelihood of a record completed and ready to go by 2012 seems incredibly low.
Though we may have no news about the new album The Strokes themselves have been doing things like Julian popping up in the 100th digital short on SNL or Nikolai performing with Mick Jagger and Arcade Fire
So whilst this site may not be updated regularly it still stands and will rest assured will continue to.

To all those currently enjoying the summer, The Strokes will always be the perfect soundtrack. I’m off to crank up The Modern Age and enjoy the sun.
You may have read about the closure of Megaupload last week, it is having a massive impact on other filesharing sites including the one I use to host the majority of the media on here, Mediafire.
I’ve always loved sharing all the concerts and TV performances with other Strokes fans and Mediafire has been the easiest way to do that. I have never uploaded anything by The Strokes that could be purchased legally, it’s always been about bootlegs that you can’t get otherwise.
I have something like 30GB of Strokes media currently uploaded to Mediafire, if it was to be closed down currently there is no other hosting service I could upload it all to and even if there was it would take a long time. I could possibly uploaded the audio to my own site but the videos would be too much.
I don’t want to panic anyone but seriously the way everything is going right now Mediafire closing or having restrictions is sadly a likely scenario.
So if there is a concert you always meant to download but have yet then I suggest doing that sooner rather than later.
Some links are probably broken but I don’t have the time right now to upload them again.
I honestly hope that Mediafire doesn’t close, it would be a great loss to us all. I will keep you updated with any developments.

I’ve installed Disqus which makes commenting easier as you can now use your twitter id, etc.
I’ve also been adding lots of photos to the gallery and I’m in the process of adding some old scans from magazines
Welcome to the new look She’s Fixing Her Hair.
It has been a long time coming but I’ve wanted to transfer the site over to WordPress for a while, its easier to update and has some nifty features.
Everything should be working, as usual some media is down but I am working to upload the content.
Please comment and let me know what you think!
Emails and contact
My old email address for the site is no longer working…it has over the last 6 years become overwhelmed by spam that its just too difficult to get through the mails from you guys. So I apologize for any emails people have sent and I haven’t responded to, I feel terribly guilty about it!
So the best way to contact me is even via comments on here or at my new (so far spam free) email address shesfixing @ ymail.com
