"this time baby, I'll be bulletproof."

I wish.

I went to the Nylon tour gig at the Rock 'n' Roll Hotel last night. despite leaving 5 songs into Patrick Wolf's set and being gutted about that - he started at 11.20 PM presumably according to this Twitter because he was being interviewed by Japanese journos in his comfy hotel room (?!?) and having a heart attack about not catching the train back out of town (I actually made the v. last train home, can you believe it?)...

...I am shattered.

somehow I managed to write about 1/2 of the review on the train ride back, but have to go through the photos and such and sort everything out. watch this space.


the punters are out in record numbers for Glasto. Steve Lamacq has already headed down there and has the kind of gig/interview/general schmoozing schedule you'd envy, if you weren't human and didn't actually need sleep. since I can't be there, I will be living it up remotely via the DC9 Glasto happy hour on Sunday early evening (17.00-20.00 Washington time, 22.00-. we're hoping that we'll catch Blur's closing set.


and for those who aren't at Glasto OR going to the Sunday DC9 happy hour, have a read at Friendly Fires's drummer Jack Savidge's earlier Tweets:

jackbsavidge Good news for people who hadn't planned to be juggling or playing the digeridoo at Glastonbury on saturday night between 3am and 5am.

Radio 1 Essential Mix - on air at 03.00-05.00 London time I believe in the wee hours of Saturday, which would mean 22.00-0.00 late Friday night for us on the East Coast. sorry, but I'll defo be sleeping! will have to catch this later on iPlayer...


oh yeah, and I just heard White Denim will be live on Marc Riley's show on 6music tonight.
