Velodrome’s first practise!

image

The first new Velodrome 2000 practise with all of us there. It was so much fun – I’d forgotten how much I love playing in this band! Remembering the songs was easy – it was like falling off a bike!

The Wendy Darlings at the Chameleon

image

The Wendy Darlings were amazing at the Chameleon last night too. Here’s a picture of Markie acting as an improvised music stand during their rather marvellous version of the Primitives’ Really Stupid.

My legs hurt now from dancing too much to Horowitz and The Wendy Darlings but it was worth it!

Horowitz rock!

Pete rocked so much he crashed my camera and I could only get a photo of him in the quiet song!

Wendy Darlings/Horowitz/Trianglegrams in Nottingham

A Sunday teatime indiepop spectacular: The Wendy Darlings plus Horowitz and The Trianglegrams, Sunday 15th April at The Chameleon Arts Cafe, Nottingham. £5 entry. Doors at 5.30pm - this is an early evening show and will end at 9.00pm.
The Trianglegrams (which is The Parallelograms without Meriel as she is currently on maternity leave) are playing at The Chameleon in Nottingham tomorrow evening (15th April) with the wonderful Wendy Darlings and marvellous Horowitz. It’s an early evening show (5.30pm to 9pm).

We’ll be doing a few Parallelograms songs and then a bunch of covers of old indiepop songs. We’re a bit nervous about playing because we’ve not practised anywhere near enough but you should come down anyway because the other two bands will be amazing!

Melody Dog!

Best walk to work ever this morning: listening to Futuristic Lover by Melody Dog on repeat, trying to work out the bass line. It made me realise that I’d been under-appreciating it. I mean it already was my Favourite Song Of All Time, I just didn’t realise just quite how wonderful it is.

Candy Twist

My copy of Candy Twist issue 1 has arrived. It’s lovely having a proper paper and ink #fanzine like in the olden days.

Clouds over the Ponderosa and Ruskin Park in Sheffield

Clouds over Ruskin Park
They were really beautiful but the colours don’t show up so well using the camera in my phone.

I also tried to take one of the #moon over Carr Road.
