I know it's been a while but I have for once been quite busy. Anyway, on to more important matters...
Merida and I went to Offset Festival at the end of August which was a laff. It was quite odd as it was a really small festival and you could reach everything within one minute. However, I like this because I am a lazy person and don't like having to walk for ages to get back to your camp/go see another band/eat a pie, etc.
Wire were incredibly uninteresting and disappointing - they did not play any of their good old songs and were boring to watch. I loved Metronomy because I love Metronomy and their light up shirts. They played in a really small tent which was overflowing with people and it was a nice atmosphere etc etc. Chromehoof were well good: sparkly costumes and an amazing front woman with jerky dance moves. I have forgotten a lot of the bands I saw but there were lots of good ones. Will also never forget No Bra and how I just DON'T GET IT, it was really bad.
Here are some songs that I have been listening to this morning:
N.E.R.D - My Drive Thru ft. Santogold and Julian Casablancas
Timbaland - Throw It On Me ft. The Hives

Simian - LA Breeze
Good old Simian. I love how they warn you about the approaching verse/chorus/noisy singing. Yeah, woah, should be here soon.... yep.... oh, here it comes.... yeah, here comes la breeze (whatever that is). The singer does indeed look like he's going to have an aneurysm.

Erik Satie - Trois Gnossienes - I. Lent
Satie was this incredibly eccentric man who was always seen wearing the same grey velvet suit. When he died and people went through his belongings, they found at least six of the same suit, and over 100 umbrellas in his room. Strange man.
PS: Our trip was great, although unfortunately (or fortunately..) there was no Europop but a lot of 'American Boy'.
