I write from Washington DC, where I’m sat in my friend Becky’s flat waiting for a taxi to take me to the airport, and thence back to London town. I’ve been out here a month now, and it’s been fantastic. I want to say a special thanks to Fake Problems, and to Chuck, Tim, Ben, Digger, Todd, John, Jimmy, Jason and Matty on the Revival Tour, for having me along. And hats off to everyone at the shows, good times, new friends, colossal hangovers… what more could an Englishman ask for?
And as I prepare to fly home, I learn that Long Live The Queen is to be the Single Of The Week on Sara Cox’s show on BBC Radio 1. So here’s a toast to Sara too.
