Placebo
On Wednesday I interviewed Brian Molko from Placebo, he was very lovely and it should make for quite an interesting read. There is the best sound clip ever of him saying "thanks for telling me when...

EP

Tom’s working on his E.P. I wonder if it has a name yet, he’s too shy to tell me these things. He sits at his computer drumming away on his drum machine all day, wasting talent like water, so I cha...

Pillar Of Salt
We went to see The Thermals at Nice ‘N Sleazy’s in Glasgow tonight. Iain drove us there and back, while we made up some amazingly catchy songs in the back of the car. The support band were called A...

I’ve been listening to a lot of Graham Coxon recently. I saw him in Camden at the weekend, buying cheap take-out like the rest of us, clever guy. I always pictured the line “I saw you on the corner...

Trip to London...

Bon Anniversaire
Today was Alistair’s birthday, so we picked up the most amazing cake from a Patisserie near our hotel and met him at a really pretty park. There was a little tower in the center of the park, which...

We're In Paris
We’re in Paris! After arriving in the city, our first sight was a crazy burnt-out motorbike. We made our way to the Ideal Hotel on Avenue Emile Zola which was very very pretty. We had a quick nap...

Sugar Skulls
I made some Sugar Skulls tonight using the mould I ordered from Mexican Sugar Skulls. I love them so much but I doubt that I'll eat them as they're far too sugary. I'm just going to give them all a...
