He made a crack last night about having to out out yet another series of reissues if there were some sort of catastrophe with the Spinning Songbook. :D :D

Re: Elvis/Imposters Beacon Theatre New York, NY May 23, 2011

Thanks for the setlist. Was trying to piece it together in my mind on the long train ride home. All Grown Up was awesome, but a special word of praise for So Like Candy, I Want You and a fantastic Chelsea. Also loved the Bible Code Sundays mini-set. BTW Arctic Monkeys singer is Alex Turner.

I have just won two tickets to see Fleet Foxes on their special Radio 2 in concert performance. At the BBC radio theatre.


I think you'll love it. Just got back from seeing them - still buzzing.

Re: Recent CD Purchases

Picked up the new Ron Sexsmith album. Definitely a bigger, more produced sound than his last few efforts. Not sure what to think yet. A lot to like but I don't know that any of the songs have really grabbed me yet. Gonna give it some time.

Re: EC SOLO @ NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL - Sunday July 31, 2011

Hmm, I was out there a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Saw Gillian Welch/Dave Rawlings, The Decemberists, Billy Bragg, Fleet Foxes and a bunch of other great acts. If the lineup is good this year I would definitely go again!

It is a lovely reissue package. Hats off to YepRoc. Here are a few photos I took of the vinyl version, which just sounds glorious... http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5139/5555579251_2377d29139_z.jpg http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5255/5555579759_a3c3ee3f03_z.jpg http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5013/555...

Re: Wake up you footy fans!!!

Arsenal had only 2 touches iin the Barca area. For me it's not that they deserved to win (they didn't), but rather the fact that Barca consistently gets help from friendly referees in big European games. I have no love for Arsenal, but the Van Persie sending off was ridiculous. First Frisk, then Ov...

Saw this on When Saturday Comes forum, penned by one Hartley Sebag-Ffiennes... 'Twas as foul and base a spectacle as any conjured up by the poet Pope in The Dunciad, one which caused the nostrils of those of a properly Augustan sensibility to wrinkle with disdain, to watch the rank, blue-clad hordes...

Re: Wake up you footy fans!!!

Any good Ashley Cole air rifle jokes out there? Thought people would be all over that story. Here's one for Arsenal...

What the difference between Arsene Wenger and Fagin from Oliver Twist?

When Fagin sends his kids out, they come back with silverware.
