HIT THE NORTH

This weekend that's exactly what I did, and disappointingly wasn't snowed in anywhere or anything. SHAME, thanks must go out to Drew and Luke Birdwar in Leeds for sorting out their all dayer, I was only able to catch Aaron Stout and McWatt before I had to shoot over to Manchester, but both were great and I'm sure the other acts kept up the high standards. It was particularly good to catch up with Chris hardmen and Gareth "bologna pony" Hardwick, to hear about amusing developments in the Nott's area, prior to my gig there next sunday. Manchester was also really good, despite the fact that me and Jane managed to get lost somewhere in Cheshire on sunday lunch and were therefore late! Nevermind, D Louis Baker was awesome as were Blood Red Shoes I didn't get to stay and watch Voo (but I did pick up one of their extremely nicely packaged 7"s) or the little explorer (whose website seems to have disappeared) or Surrounded.. but I'm sure they all indie rocked the house. Thanks to Andy and Meng (sp? I hope that's right).. for the biscuits and the chance to play to the good folks of the greater manchester area..

NEWS/ THINGS

Heads up if you want to read an edifying ten questions type interview with me, there are two of them on that internet right now one at Tasty zine and one at Diskant's Weblog so that might waste a moment of work time! Our gig last week with Jeffrey Lewis was ace, he was great, played with a drummer and a bass player and was backed up by a girl from Bikini Atoll with a Korg analog synth and a space echo. It was pretty SWEET. So thanks to the marvellous Track and fieldpeople for that!
