Excited isnt the word, i cant think of a word to describe how this flyer makes me feel. New Zealand its been a long time coming and Zombies, dont even get me started! I still cant believe im going NZ, i honestly hope i meet an islander fall in love and never come back! lol
Twas my first time in Romania last weekend alongside Kabuki for the TM10 Base Festival in Timisoara, met some great people, extremely kind and a lot of fun thanks to all that got us over there for the show
Now Im not trying to be ignorant at all (i was made to choose between history & geography in high school and saw myself as a historian rather than a traveller back then) but until looking in the back of the inflight magazine on my way to Romania i actually had no idea where i was going. In fact to sound completely ignorant the most i knew about this distance and quite romantic sounding land of Romania was that Dracula had once lived there…if you believe all you read or see in Hollywood epics you’ll also find the grounds of Highgate, Hampstead and Whitby quite hallowed however here i was en route to Transylvania…ok ok i know stupid it was Timisoara and i knew this shallow teenage vampire fantasy of mine was based on tired media steroetypes and so i was on my best behaviour on leaving the airplane and tried my very best not see Dracula references EVERYWHERE…..
So long, adieu goodbye my lovelies i have gone to further shores…ok im only in Belgium today but tomorrow ill be even further and then a week from now ill be in Berlin, not touching UK soil til Oct 4th, i can feel you miss me already as much as i miss you X
I’d told you we’d get to Germany by the end of the day. This is the only German song i can confidently sing along with and still not really know what the hell im saying…lets hope its still big in the karaoke bars in Berlin else ill be stuck with Hasslehoff covers on a drunk night out Dam this song was massive though back in the day, i remember it was always on MTV over here in the UK like 90 erm something or other, oh and there was that french guy too, what was his name again…….. ah Fabe im thinking i have to have french hip hop day at some point, that album was one of my favs back in the day, Detournement De Son!
Ow ow ow ow, its the morning after a very rowdy night before. We had a great gig in Bochum, even if i was in the worst of moods by the end of it, however a good old knees up ( ankles down) with The Qemists and Enter Shikari soon changed the mood….
Ok so there’s a bit of a backlog with my video making from last years 30 days around the world gigging expedition. It all started in South America at the beginning of December, next was Croatia, Austria then Portugal finally landing in Australia for the Christmas and the New Year! (more…)
This time tomorrow i’ll be enjoying party time South America style longside Magneto Massive Danny Wheeler and his crew in Caracus. Long day of travelling ahead but its soo gonna be worth it cause right now smoking outside my sisters flat in Newbury Park its f**king freezin!!!! Roll on humidity and frizzy hair, beaches and drum n bass
What a week. Its been my final one in London and the first back in Manchester, however i’ll be spending it in Reading! Huh? I kind of like being all over the place but its just so tiring doing all the travelling. In London last night and this morning dropping off the hire van, stayed in my old flat which looks amazing without all my shit in it, lmao! I have way to much stuff…back in Manchester my 2 bedroom house is overflowing with sh*t mostly clothes and electrical goods but its still shit! Oh to have space, lovely hidden storage and space…..I need to sell everything, jumble/car boot sale…but im never around on a Sunday. Anyways not thinking about my hermits lair back in Manchester its over to Reading for a week’s session with Prash aka Catch 22, yay. Goodbye old smoke, hello the land of Uggo’s and then the land of blue jeans…im in Moscow at the weekend Wooo HOoo.
