I had a weird day yesterday. A family funeral was followed by the extremely bizarre (yet awesome) Jonny Awsum show, and finished up with an altercation outside a nightclub. I know, I know, my own fault for trying to get into Bacchus in Kingston (nothing else was open), but yeah, they’re cunts, avoid at all costs.
The good people at Radio 1 have put up a cool couple of video interviews I did with my good friend Mike Davies when I was in Los Angeles last month. They can be found on their website here. Was I drunk after the Viper Room show? Yes I was.
I’m trying to get in touch with a guy called Callum. He keeps mailing me but I can’t mail him back because o his privacy settings. I’d usually avoid posting this kind of thing publicly, but given that he seems to think I’m an arsehole for not replying, it’s starting to get on my nerves. If anyone knows this guy and has a way of contacting him, can you ask him to email me? Thanks.
As some people have already found out, there’s a plan afoot at the moment to re-release the first Million Dead album, “A Song To Ruin”, sometime before the end of this year, with the fabled live DVD that never was. The guys at Xtra Mile have decided it’s time, and some legal disputes have been cleared up to everyone’s satisfaction, so it looks like this is actually going to happen. I don’t have a date yet. I’m pretty happy about this – that record is totally out of print, and personally I prefer it (marginally) to “Harmony No Harmony”. I mention this now because I’m interested in anyone who has any photos of MD tattoos. In particular I’m trying to get hold of Simon from Sevenoaks, who had a great MD tattoo on his back. Drop me a line if you can help.
Finally, I’m confirmed to play at the difficult-to-spell Pitka Kuuma Kesa Festival in Helsinki on June 27th. At last, I’m going to Finland.
