Shout out everyone enjoying Lemmings. Shout out everyone that’s been posting it, like the good people at The Guardian, The Quietus and Bleeding Cool. The response has been beautiful, so thank you. Messages are pouring in, as are new listeners, like this one:
The song’s also been heard by the genius who I sampled, Dr Tim Wright, AKA CoLDSToRAGE:
Here’s a video of Dr Wright performing live. I nearly lost my jaw when I heard the first track, as it sounds exactly like something on my next record:
Meanwhile on Twitter, UK beat superstars have been involved in a minor #TACHECLASH, after Boy Better Know’s Shorty tweeted something about having “the best moustache in the scene”. Noted moustache-bearer High Rankin was amused, posting the following:
To which I posted this:
So I win the #TACHECLASH, basically. Amen.
Right, back to work, I’ve got an #UNKILLABLETHUNDERCHRIST to finish. The art is coming along beautifully. You can peep a preview of it on the preorder page. I’m colouring it this afternoon and doing the background, but you, my nearest and dearest, can check the work in progress here.

Brothers and sisters!
It is my great pleasure to present to you
A magnificent pop song, with a magnificent remix by my good friend Chilly Gonazles and a magnificent video directed by the award winning pop-promo visionary Dr Aaron Shrimpton.
We had a wonderful day in Southend On Sea filming it, and I hope you have a wonderful time wherever you are watching it. Let us know what you think in the comments and please send it to all your friends and family ESPECIALLY your Nan. Actually, if you want to argue with your friends all day in its comments section on Youtube that will help me achieve my goal of having it hit the Youtube front page and become a great big massive MEGA HIT, because that is what it deserves to be.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody involved in this glorious work of art, from the very bottom to the top of heart, which rhymes, making it all the more TRUE. High fives all round. I am happy and proud.
