Yesterday was without doubt the most hectic day of my life. As was the day before that. Basically, Wednesday started early with packing for tour, then 12 hours of mastering (interspersed with a photo shoot and doing a shotlist for a video), followed by a late bedtime. Thursday started superearly with a video shoot (me in a co-directing role), which ran hectically through the day before I played at the Astoria with The Automatic (lovely lads) and then hiked across town for the Xtra Mile party in Camden. I was dead on my feet after that and headed back to the hotel to catch up with the Automatic’s tour bus, whereupon I was kissed by Paul Weller. Thereafter I slept like the dead, and now I’m in Sheffield. Life is strange.
