Saturday 20th March : I Am The Pope

Wow.  What a day.  It wasn’t supposed to be a busy one. At 11am we headed for breakfast with the wonderful Vicki and Stan who’s apartment we’re staying in.  We were taking them to see Jimi Alexander play at Jon Langford’s shindig at the Yard Dog.  Cool place.  We watched Jim and then Viv Albertine and [...]

Friday 19th March : Pork Militia

The day we caved in to being tourists. We started the day thinking we had to rush around but we had a meeting postponed so ended up with a bit of free time.  Firstly though, we went record shopping.  We had a look around the massive record convention, there was almost too much to look at. [...]

We walked into downtown, had a [...]

Monday 15th March : I Think

The clock on my laptop is telling me that it’s 1am.  I got up at 5am.  But really it’s 7pm.  Suppose we’d better go out drinking then. Got to Heathrow this morning to find out that our flight was delayed by an hour.  Not ideal when you only have 90 minutes to catch a connecting flight [...]

Sunday 14th March : John The Cat

I woke up surprisingly perky this morning given that last night involved witnessing a man shake his trouser leg loose of his own faeces, being in a pub full of pissed deaf people and seeing the poster that graces this post. Handy hint – if your name is John, please don’t call your cat [...]
