Helter Skelter/Gambling Problem

Hola,

Just sitting in King’s Cross Mcdonalds listening to Tom Waits, making full use of their free wi-fi, and it seemed like a good time to write a blog. We’re playing tonight at the Hoxton Pony for the launch of of this new thing called ‘Hoxton Live Sessions‘ which sounds quite interesting. Our track ‘Sun Coming Up’ features on their first podcast too.

Having seen and wanted to go on the helter-skelter near the strummerville stage at secret garden party, i decided to go on the one at the end of Brighton pier. It was only a pound, and although fairly underwhelming, i still had enough change to go and rinse on the 10p machines. My logic was that the 10p machines would make me more money than the 2p ones. On reflection they both will lose you considerable amounts of money as you sweat, bang the glass, set the alarm off, think about robbing children, and become fully engulfed in a gambling mania that can only end when, having checked all pockets in a panic, you realize you’ve run out of change.

In other news we’re looking to make a video any time soon, so watch out for that! On Saturday 29th, I’m playing two, that’s right, two, solo gigs-one in Bar Mondo in Dartford, and the other in Command House, Chatham. If you’re local to any of these it would be great to see you at one!

Anyway, back to Rain Dogs. “independent as a hog on ice…”
