Out Now is the 80′s homage from Krystal Klear and myself Addiction on Rinse, i popped into the label HQ in East London last week to record a live version for their Rinse Sessions. Helping me out with the acoustic backing was EngineEarz/Arusha Accord guitarist Tom Hollings and JLS newest band member Jack Guppy who did an excellent job had really fun day thanks to them, Julie and the drive time crew. See how it all went down above
So Kate Bush MIGHT be closing the Olympics, its a wicked internet rumor that i just hope is oh so true. Its also a brilliant excuse to post a song from my favorite alleged female stoner. Mrs Bartolozzi aka Washing Machine is oh so apt for this beautiful sunny evening on which i intend to hang my laundry outside to dry…gotta love an eccentric chick!
I dont wanna say anything that will detract from the effortless cuteness dripping from this picture.
Yeah so happy with how this lil session from over a year ago has turned out, big thank you to the Atomique crew for getting me to do this, long time no see y’all.

Been loving BBC2′s series investigating what makes the perfect rock n roll band, managed to catch the Drummers episode last night was truely epic (Ginger Baker lol) and my favourite so far. Obviously they talk alot about John Bonham (he’s the drummers drummer innit) and so shows the Led Zeppelin concert at the O2 where his son played, ah i didn’t have a ticket but was outside trying to hear something, we didn’t lol. Oh and im now very jealous of anyone that got to see Motely Crue live…..dam who flys a drum kit out into the audience nowadays? Whole series so far is up on Iplayer, which is my new best friend….sad i know!
