socks, festivals and DERBY!

Hello again

hope you're enjoying the crazily unpredictable weather. i keep doing the incredibly grown up thing of going places and, when it starts to rain, shouting 'oh no! I've left the clothes on the line!' and so there's socks all over the back garden concrete....

I enjoyed my last weekend home for the next couple of months as the festival season kicks off. This weekend it's the first ever Latitude festival in Southwold, Suffolk, where I'm hosting the Lake Stage. There's Euros Childs, get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly, Early Years, Rich James, Mr Hopkinsons Computer, Das Wanderlust, Lords, Cate le Bon, Andrew Hockey and a whole lot more playing my stage. Then it's Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, my mate Baz's stag do in tipis, Big Chill, the Eisteddfod in Swansea, the Green Man Festival, the mighty Bestival (anyone got a spare clown outfit?), Macs Festival in Carmarthen and who knows where else I'll end up.

Got a smart looking show for you tonight, with Plans & Apologies and Dragonflies Draw Flame sets live from Maida Vale, two sparkling examples of mighty fine bands coming out of Derby at the moment. As well as the usual mix of fresh new tunes that I've been keeping under my matress for the last seven days...

    Chat room - eh....! how confusing is that..! I'd rather roosting with bats, I thought I'd got the hang of this technolgy lark but, it seems deep down I'm more comfortable with flying rodents!
