Well yesterday turned out just awesome, victory snatched from the jaws of defeat. After a total arse of a start to the day, and a last minute re-pitching of the video, we ended up in a park on top of the hill in Oxford in glorious sunshine, with about 50 people helping out with singing, dancing and generally pratting about in front of the camera. It was a pretty stressful day all told, but I think we’ve ended up with something great. Many thanks to all who participated.
Announcements! I’m pleased to say I’ll be playing the iTunes Festival this summer, at the Roundhouse in London, on July 19th. All the tickets are for competition winners and the like, but if you check this out you can find out more about how to get down there. the Futureheads will also be appearing on my night. The set will also be released as a live EP on iTunes a day or two after the event. Should be a lot of fun, I hope to see some of you there.
I’m also appearing on the latest Epitaph Records sampler, New Noise Vol. 1. The song is “Poetry Of The Deed”. It’s released on June 15th and costs a mere $2.99. More information can be found on the website.
As for today, I have a live session I recorded for Geoff Lloyd‘s show on Absolute Radio, which is being aired from 5pm tonight – tune in! And before that, I’m heading to the airport to jet off to Israel for some shows. It’s going to be an interesting experience to say the least, but I’m always keen to experience new parts of the world, so I’m looking forward to it. Detailed musings on here later this week.
