Mood: unemployed rat-catcher
Music: Crescent - Collected Songs

Unbelievable quote of the day:
"Any man who rides a bus to work after the age of 30 can count himself a failure in life". - Margaret Thatcher

Super fun link of the day:

Trying to organise a few Bristol shows before the Camden Crawl in march. Not much else to say other than that I am reading The Real Middle Earth, by Brian Bates, an exploration of Dark Ages Britain, the inspiration for Tolkien's Middle Earth, and it's fascinating.

Hello Nick.
This is entirely unrelated comment but I had a look through your archives and wanted to thank you for suggesting people listen to Slowdive's Primal. I did so and enjoyed it immensely. Its funny how certain bands have an insane stigma around them which one can easily be distracted by. I listened to pygmalion recently and its extraordinary. Talking of bands that are almost universally hated I listened to a live version of Drive Blind by Ride recorded at the Albert Hall. If you don't know it you should certainly try and find it out.
Also, did your band name come from the Pullman song of the same name. I sincerely hope so.

Anyway, hope its not too surprising to find that people read these things.

That's right, from the Pullman song.

Slowdive's 'Pygmalion' is the great lost ambient album.

Ride's EPs were all great. I was at that Albert hall show!
