We made it back from Sardinia and the wild roads of Europe, i swear thought i was dead 2 times in France thanks to Dads sporadically bad driving. Apart from that Laundry day and Sun & Bass were so much fun, The G family officially love Sardinia which as always was a joy, big shouts to all crew that made it so. Henry loved the beaches of San Teadoro, he even had his first swim 100m off shore (what a brave little puppy!) and got the first stamp in his passport! Since our return my Dad has bought his first espresso pot and is planning on annoyingly answering the telephone in Italian for the rest of his life ‘Bon Journo’. It was funny to spending time with him on the road, even if his stick shift driving is a bit rusty we had a lot of fun taking wrong turns, passing through borders stoned, buying alcohol at motorway service stations, telling tour stories and singing along to the epic collection of music i loaded onto a USB stick for the snazzy system in the hire car. 8gbs of musical entertainment easily saw us through the 28 hours of road time clocked up over 3000km of road in 7 countries, wanted to give you a taster but how do i boil that down to 20 minutes?

This year touring with the Qemists has took me all over the place, we’ve played and partied quite hard, in so many cities & clubs it was inevitable that some of my possesions were gonna go walkabouts. This is just a small dedication to some of my favourite pieces no longer with us, well no longer with me some lucky f**kers found them…hope their being nice to my babies! (more…)
Haven’t been bloggin’ as ferociously as i used to lately and that is kind of down to being so blooming busy with the boys from Brighton! Touring with The Qemists this year has already took me to 5 different countries, playing around 24 gigs in support of their debut album ‘Join The Q’ which is out now! If you haven’t seen us yet there’s plenty of gigs on the way over summer, check out the tour dates in right column on blog. This little video is a snapshot of The Qemists Live so far… (more…)
Im sat back stage whilst Enter are sound-checking my favourite song Juggernaut, i keep waking up singing this bitch seriously the choon is the shizzle! Has also been first day with the Shikari crew after our riot bonding sesh in Brussels, has been some jokes this afternoon i tell thee.Anyways here goes tour diary day 7, which by the way was another day off here in the bountiful Bochum!
After an amazing day n night in Brussels (where im sure the ankle first began to hurt) we headed on over the border to Bochum, which we all thought was in Poland but is actually in Germany, go figure genius’s! On route we watched Chopper as we finally had the dvd player working, all it took was a little slap and a poke from Timmy two dinners, he the man!
So Bochum….is interesting, our first experience of a Formula One hotel aka swingers town! This hotel was my worst nightmare for real, bunk beds, communal toilets (VD’S) and showers (verruca’s), with red and green lights over head…like that was suppose to be cute, in my first 30 mins in the hotel i seen 4 men roaming the corridor in their undies, very tight white undies and they weren’t even fit!! (more…)
Im the only one still awake at Qemist HQ, there’s an hour before the bus comes to pick us up for our two week road trip across Europe. Im mad excited and also hoping to make most of cot in back of splitter hence the no sleeping (thanks Mr Carne!). All sorts of things running through my head…did i pack enough knickers, should i have brought my skirt, will he bother like i did to make the 5 hour round trip, should i shave my hair off and why have i only brought clothes that make me look like a teenage boy?! Nothing major i suppose just last minute jitters…all melts away when i think of all the fun we’re gonna have on stage. Yay Antwerp here we come
