Hello boys and girls and anyone still undecided… I sit here on a sunny day in London with my little boy Arlo chewing on my thumb and making noises in his nappy. It's a 'appy scene to be sure.
Just been listening to Jarvis of the Cockers new song - Running The World, with the immortal chorus of: 'c**ts are still running the world'. Its grandiose, witty and brave - just what the bespectacled doctor ordered for a sick pop world … but possibly won't get much radio play!

Since we last spoke I've been doing a fair amount of festivals - both as punter and DJ. T In The Park was ace - I managed to drag about 5000 people in at 1145am for some techno action in the Slam tent. Only in Scotland could this happen - must be something in the water but it's so great to see everyone really letting go and having a whale of a time.
Went to Latitude this weekend in Suffok which is a more arty affair entirely - lots of poetry and spoken word … and the Welsh wizard Huw Stephens hosting a stage. Managed to see one band in an entire day - Howling Bells who were great but not as good as I'd hoped.
Check out One Music on Thursday to hear the incredible Vashti Bunyan and Ive got Hot Chip in session on the Blue Room Saturday and Sunday.
