Hi Kids. It is snowing in London, for no good reason. Isn’t this supposed to be, um, Spring? Is this something to do with global warming? How about all those fuckin’ jellyfish, multiplying like fucking rats after a bamboo feast?
Strange times indeed, when a brutish gang of jellies can storm a Salmon farm and get away with it. Did you hear about that shit? They fuckin’ merked those salmon! All of them! They stormed in, all wobbly and 98% water, hardly there at all, and MERKED the salmon to DEATH. POW!
Yessir. So I am going to see Pydos In Spydos over the otherside of town, who are filming a video for their ace pop song Le Chat, then I’m gonna go to a wedding. You, you can read this stuff.
Neon Neon were joined by Romeo Stoddart and Angela Gannon of The Magic Numbers last night (March 20) for their live performance in Room Two of the Fabric nightclub in London.
The band, comprised of the main songwriting duo of Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys and Boom Bip, included Cate Le Bon playing various instruments, and saw London solo artist Akira The Don come onstage to provide vocals for ’Sweat Shop’.
The band played songs from their new album ’Stainless Style’, including ’I Lust U’ and ’Belfast’, with the aforementioned members of The Magic Numbers providing vocals for set closer ’Stainless Style’.
Cheers for having me Neon Neon! It was very random, and I had a lovely time. The Magic Numbers people were very nice too.
So! I have the Gonzales album now. A very nice man who I shall not name just in case sent it me. I asked him where he got it.
“Strange one that,” he wrote. “at work today I found a small cuddly toy (a sheep called Thomas) with a blue cdr taped to him. The disc had Gonzales – SP written on it. I asked about the office but nobody new anything about it so I checked the contents of the disk and thought “I know a man who will want this”. I burned a copy and stuck the cdr back on the mysterious Thomas and left him as I found him.”
Pretty awesome non? Anyway. I am fucking loving this record! If he wasn’t going to make another rap album, this was the album I wanted him to make. Its got sax solos! It is lush!
Word up my people equals. We shot a video for Click Clack Blam last night. It was super dope. We have developed a revolutionary new technique, I think. You’ll see when I’ve edited it. Editing is gonna be a bitch. The footage looks awesome though, I am hyped. Pizza Girl took a few photos to check light contrast, peep game.
Oh, I just got told a track I did with an outfit called Temposhark is on the cover of the new XLR8R magazine, so you should check that out. Someone send me a copy! I refuse to leave the house!
OK. Check out Little Man‘s new video for the excellent Unsent Letter, wot we recorded round Don Studios III at the end of 07. It is ace!
So, I heard that Gonz tune last night, and I got all excited, and spent all day making a remix of it. I had so much fun! It was almost perverse how much fun I had. It’s a vocal and musical remix. I spent ages on it, the drums are very intricate and the raps are ace. You can listen to it NOW!
In other news, I got a really nice stereo for the kitchen, a fishbowl, and a proper architect’s drawing board, all off of Freecycle! I’ve wanted a drawing board all my life! I can make comics properly now! It is so sweet! Weird thing is it was, like, 100 meters away from me, in a warehouse by my local corner shop. Thank you people, for the stuff. Our kitchen is a nice place to be in now, and I can’t wait to get my fishes!
By the way, that’s me and Gonz in 2004. You can’t tell from our awesome composure, but we’d just smoked two spliffs and spent a good two hours or so talking about The Wu. Good times!
