it is the end of our two week session.

we re splitting up its all shit. were washed. up. finished.

only kidding.

it was fun. some of it has been really great fun. and there were moments that stick in my head when i went 'TUNE!' 'TuNE!'

like tonight listening through
' house of cards.'

its us, no denying it. bu t thats cool.. i like it. it has its own power. cant fight that i suppose. although i see it as my duty to try.

i will dread listening to it all after we have left in the real world. i always dread that. id much rather start something new and forget. but right good.
guess thats why the blackboard is full.

two days off, sunday spent dragging a puppy around Abingdon.

back tomorrow, after a full on week of recording a song a day, some not even on the of jonny's tunes, packing a lot in 2 mins 45 seconds! Spent weekend agreeing with Nick Cohen, hoping Simon Starling would win the Turner, listening to new modeselektor album, and waiting to get the boards of canada and pharrell williams tomorrow. Exciting talk of shows next year; it's good to have a plot. Another week ahead in the studio, then more in December. I'll keep you posted this week with more news and wonky shots, so wish us luck!

in a house that may be or maybe not haunted

back into work again after very quick break contending with the usual winter illnesses and fevers.
-which are still messing with things.
jonnys stepping over guitar leads and pedals and laptop as we
yet another new tune added to the blackboard called Rubbernecks.
at the moment its a demo. when is a demo not a demo? when its in time. whats in time?


im asking jonny to lay off the sweet rock and stick to the sticklebrick licks. more-

their dotting all the tees
and crossing their eyes
welcome to the future
it opened up my eyes
its creeping up the car park
its coming up the drive
rubbernecks with cameras
petrol and bonfires(heres the loud bit)

we need to keep away the rubbernecks
we need to keep away the rubbernecks
me me my my

another person who thinks a bit like me (only faster),
its a relief sometimes, i dont feel quite as crackers as i did.
