I can’t wait for the album!
I’ve had a fantastic time at Going Up The Country this weekend. So many great bands and lots of lovely friends. Even the massive around of rain didn’t dampen the fun. Plus I got to do some proper dancing for the first time since I broke my leg.
Here are some photos:
The other day I accidentally cyber-stalked Marianthi when bandcamp sent me an email saying that she’d just bought some records by Oh Peas! (I’m a really big fan of bandcamp but I’m not keen on it being social-networkized – I just want it to be a place to buy records).
I really liked the name so I bought the Year of the Horse EP and it’s great! I keep listening to the title track. The rest of the EP is probably good too but when I get to the end of the first track I just want to listen to it again. It’s been making me grin all the way to and from work everyday this week. There’s an album too which I haven’t got yet but will do soon.

Today I’m being totally earwormed by the first line from Shut by Colour Me Wednesday.
Velodrome 2000 played at indietracks this year and afterwards we were interviewed by a puppet cat called edgar and a puppet… errr… something else called Bryce. They got us drunk and we had an ace time.
Here’s a video of the interview which also features interviews with some of the other fantastic bands who played.
They’ve got some more videos and some podcasts and other stuff on their website: http://www.sallepierrelamy.com/
I didn’t take many pictures at indietracks this year here are the ones I did take.
Markie Plays Girlpop on the train.
Dan Pocketbooks sat on Markie’s shoulder’s, showing his nipples to The Vaselines.
And the Midland Railway bar staff waving their arms to Stay Another Day by East 17 at the end of the last night. Lovely.
Tonight, at Velodrome 2000 practise, Chris brought along the Overlord Of Fermentation himself: Rik Beckman – inspiration for the song of the same name.
Here is photographic evidence for all you Rik fans.
Also at practise tonight I discovered, due to a new guitar lead that doesn’t respond well to being twisted, that while playing bass I only ever turn in a clockwise direction. So if you come to see us play and notice me spinning anti-clockwise between songs, I’m just untwisting my lead.
I’ve finally got round to watching the DVD that came with the reissue of Psychocandy. Fantastic trip down memory lane. I spent many evenings in my early twenties watching these videos with the people I shared a house with at the time and the Old Grey Whistle Test and Tube versions of the songs are for me the definitive versions.
Jo’s gone out, Ralph’s in bed and I’m leaping round the living room like a teenager to Upside Down!
