Streamers/Human Compass

March 5, 2010

Just got in from a fun show at 229 Great Portland St. I tried out a new dance move which i think went down quite well, but you can never be too sure with these things. The Screenbeats were great and reminded Ben that he’d played for their old school in his first ever band, Renton. Apparently my old band had played with them at the Dirty South a couple of years ago too. If you’re reading this, many thanks for letting us borrow your gear. Although it wasn’t packed in there by the time we went on, there were enough people there to make it good fun, and i think we all enjoyed ourselves. We were a bit sloppy, but at least we can consider it a rehersal of sorts for a big one tonight.

We’re playing at Folkestone Quarterhouse for BBC Kent Introducing’s 2nd birthday, and it should be great fun… I’m just readying my things to go and pick everyone up from Camberwell, as we’re going to be driving down there. Boys on tour. We need a Jag for this kind of thing. A jag, liqour and pretty girls. I have a Fiesta and a crate of Carling. Need to make a mix CD for the journey now…

3 things i’ve learnt in the last 24 hours:

1. Google maps LIES to you and is RUBBISH

2. My maps LIE to me and are RUBBISH

3. I need a satnav

Here’s a nice review of our E.P

I’ll be back to write about tonight when i get in later, so until then, ciao
