Thanks for the messages!

So, yesterday we did a radio session for the Glass Shrimp folks, on resonance 104.4 Fm, and it was jolly nice all round, and particularly thanks to all those who got in touch to say they heard it! It's really easy to imagine that no one but the two engineer chaps are actually hearing it at all so hats off! So thanks for that, hopefully we will get a copy of the session and when I find the cashola and the internet knowhow to get a proper site going we will try and put them online. In other news


RECORDING

This weekend we're hopefully going to laydown 4 tracks with Steve Ansell, of the mighty projections/ blood red shoes, behind the desk and the drums, and then next weekend we're going into Mute with Anne (esteemed engineer of the noisestar split 12" series) and Valentina out of that querelle on the drums. SO THAT'S EXCITING. Songs slated for recording include,

"that's my dog", "Miracle fish", "if you can't find it, grind it", "the one that sounds a bit like husker du", "lemons"," the one that goes DUN DUN DUN DUN DUH, you know" and others that we haven't even got vague names for.. but we'll come up with something.

GIGS
A couple of things are being pencilled in

October
20th London Rock night satellite 5 Ryan's Bar with Mystery Meat, and The Neon Plastix
21st London Local night for local people (king's head crouch end) with Ill Ease
22nd Ramsgate (HELL YES) IOTA gallery afternoon show with Ill Ease

November
26th Leeds Packhorse, SHHHH! a day of quiet music, with Last of the real hardmen, Ill ease, many others of outstanding quality!

as you can see a couple of those shows are with Ill ease, she is Elizabeth Sharp formerly drummer in the marvellous New Radiant Storm King, who last year made a great solo record for Too Pure, and who is over from the US for a bunch of gigs, (also including Audioscope in Oxford). So there you go!


GOOD THINGS

Deerhoof playing in a couple of weeks! Pit er Pat at the windmill last week, Snowblood live in a great new venue called Tonic up in stoke newington last tuesday. That Kelly Clarkson song "since U been gone", Piers giving me the Billy Joel album with "my life" on it on vinyl. AND LAST FM RADIO.. you people should sign up for this.. if you go to lastfm you can download a plugin that collects all the songs you listen to and then tells you other stuff you might like, you can also download the radio player and then it will play songs that it thinks you will like based on the stuff you listen to! IT'S LIKE WITCHCRAFT but good. I am user ians so by all means add me, and check out how much rubbish i listen to at work. THANKS ian
