it's blazin' sunshine. and I always like to keep a soundtrack to accompany the season's changing...

FEIST's album The Reminder made me cry on the plane home from Ireland last weekend. Her voice is heartwrenching and the whole album is beautiful.

ROBYN's album is more playful and fun. It's proper bona fide electro pop music and soo good for dancing around to...

Simian Mobile Disco's album Attack Decay Sustain Release and The Chemical Bros We Are The Night are both head to head in the public transport listening stakes. For some reason I have to listen to big banging music whilst on public transport. The Simian Mobile Disco LP is winning though... I keep going back to that..

Talking about Simian Mobile Disco..have you seen the line up for Radio 1's Big Weekend in Preston? It's off the hook! LCD Soundsystem, CSS, Calvin Harris, M.I.A, Mark Ronson, Maximo Park, Groove Armada, Bloc Party, Jamie T, The Twang, Cold War Kids, DIZZEE RASCAL, The Gossip, Klaxons?!?!?!?!?!

it's incredible! and that's just the bands that I want to see!

I'll be Djing at the afterparty on Saturday May 18th with Tongy and Simian Mobile Disco.. I'll be giving away tickets to this party on the MASH up on friday...

see you there..

    Hi Annie

    I've just read the line up for this years Global Gathering and as I'm sure you are aware your name is listed. I just thought I would drop a few lines because Im a festival Virgin!!, is it true that DJ Yoda is there with you, I love the mini mix that he did for you the last time.

    Well hope to see you there

    I couldn't comment on the upper post bexcause there seems to be an url error anyway as far as I know Prince is a very good guitar player who prefered to sing rather then play. He has been succefull so credit to him.
    I rather like to see him play the guitar.

    Nice to know you enjoyed it.

    BUT some sort of cock up in administration has sent there tickets elsewhere when my son Paul phoned to find out where his tickets were they said there was nothing could be done
    the powers that be said they had tried to contact them for the addres to send them to but paul has 2 phones (neither of which had any missed calls) plus
    STAEDLER AND WALDORF have a myspace site so any messages to be got to them through that surely ,
    i know you cant do anything for them.
    but i feel so sorry for the boys as now its too late for them to get in . i really feel that Glastonbury will be missing out this year as this band is truly amazing xx
    sorry to bother you but i feel so passionate about this band ,and i was sure you would have too .i hope this gets to you .thanks for reading this .
