The video shoot yesterday went really well. Everyone looked fabulous, I combed my hair for the first time this century, and even got a small tattoo on set. A massive thank you goes out to everyone who came down, dressed up and danced around like loons. Thanks also to Mr Ben Morse for all his hard work. The video should be done in a week or two; naturally, I’ll post the finished item up once it’s done.

News, news, news. The Centrepoint compilation that I contributed a cover of “Build Me Up Buttercup” to is now officially available and on release (Prince William says so, apparently). You can go find out, buy a copy and help a good cause right here.

Next up, this Saturday sees the 5th annual Lexapalooza event at The Flowerpot in north London. This is the festival set up by my late friend Lex and continued in her honour, to rise money for the Breast Cancer Campaign. The show is free to enter (though of course you should be giving all your cash to the collection buckets!), doors are at 12pm and it lasts all day, and entry is on a first-come-first-serve basis. I sincerely urge you all to get down there!

Finally, my good friends at Strummerville have an awesome tour this autumn featuring Beans On Toast, The Supernovas and Rum Shebeen. The dates can be found here, and it’s well worth checking out. The tour starts next week.

Right, I’m off to put the finishing touches to the new EP, mastering in West London. Then a few more days of hectic insanity, and then Austin TX! Maybe I could get another tattoo while I’m there… oh wait.
