Just got back to Cardiff on the train. My birthday is tomorrow, I'll be 25. Sadly, this means my young persons railcard runs out tomorrow also. Gutted.

It was a Live Music extravaganza last night on the show with the All Tomorrows Parties highlights - Sleater-Kinney sounded so good! There's loads of pictures up from the weekend, and you can listen to mine and Rob's show for the next few weeks for more live highlights, including Boredoms, Lightning Bolt and Electrelane. We missed not having da Bank with us this year. It was fun to see Rob at a posh BBC do yesterday - everyone in suits and ties, and Rob in a pink cardigan :)

I was tempted to ask Terry Wogan, who was there, what he really thought of heavy metal Eurovision Swedish winners Lordi, and would 65 Days of Static be something he'd be interested in hearing. I didn't get the chance sadly.

On the train back I listened to the amazing new Early Years single, a fair few fine demos which will be on the show in the coming weeks, the incredible Four Tet DJ Kicks compilation which comes out in June which has a lovely sound to it, and an album by folksters Sild, which was mesmerising.

This is what we does.

    Lordi is Finnish not Swedish.

    Dead Meadow were the highlight of ATP! Much better than Dungen who everyone is raving about, in my opinion they were a poor mans dead meadow. beautiful psychedelic sound with shoegazer dreamy like lyrics
