Shangaan Electro
Brownswood Electric

I've had these two albums on my (ever expanding) music list for a while now and finally got round to buying them. They're both very different, but they're both very engaging. I also saw the 60's book Groupie in a shop the other day and bought it. Quite daft.

There was another really good article on the Left foot forward blog ( last Sunday called, 'Should we defend the middle class welfare state?'
The blog is well written and if you haven't already you would benefit from adding it to your daily reading list.
Unless you're a Tory, in which case I wouldn't bother.

Saw Japanese improviser Yoko Miura playing at the Holy Trinity Church. Her piano playing sounded amazing with the reverb of the church. I also found out that Holy Trinity's piano has been traced back to the factory it was made in, in germany, and it is one of two pianos which were played by Adolf Hitler when he visited the factory!

we played an acoustic gig at the Bay Horse pub in hull on Friday night (October 15). We played well, but the night was pointless.
Afterwards we went to a Dubstep night at The Lamp which was good. The guys on the door were playing solitaire on a Lap Top.

We played at the Night and Day in Manchester last week. Gig went well, Polly and the Billets Doux, who were really nice people, also played. More gigs coming up: Hull on December the 12th and London on Decemember the 18th. We're also in the middle of booking more gigs in London and Manchester. Check the myspace or Facebook for more detailed information.

Desert Island Discs has been really good over the last couple of weeks. Tom Jones and Johnny Vegas both came across very well.
Thank god for Radio 4. The only thing worth paying the license bill for.
