  • Guess what happens if you speak to people at super-loud volume levels (in an attempt to deal with the excessive ambient background noise of other people talking to each other at super-loud volume levels) for about, dunno, 6 hours or something? You lose your nasal and often-monotoned voice, that's what. Unashamedly on a charm offensive, we certifiably became everything we used to/still sort of hate as we embarked on a lengthy music industry schmooze fest. At certain points we had to interrupt Remi Miles' conversations with a plethora of chums he hadn't seen in some time following his rather-electrifying performance at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen last night with a rather cuntish "sorry, can I borrow you for a minute? I just want to introduce you to [insert important person's name here] who is [insert important person's profession and position within organisation here]". We are surprisingly good at it too. As a result of these conversations last night, we have had little-to-no time to ourselves today, and have indeed for...

They say that in space, no-one can hear you scream. We’ll supplement that allllllllll-byyyyyyyy-myyyyyyyyyyseeeeeeeellllllf mentality with offering up our own pilfering paraphrasing, namely “in the Killing Moon office, no-one can hear us cough”. That’s right. We’re on our larry bloody pringles again. Ben has fucked off to Canada, which we previously mentioned, and currently soaking … Read more

Big decision-making is always a lot more palatable when one is surrounded by those who objectively know them better than they know themselves. Or something. We’ve had a certain something – well, more like two or three certain somethings as it happens – on our mind for the past year or so that we’ve decided … Read more

That was a fucking week. It isn’t even over yet technically but we’re about ready to pack up and toddle on back home – oh, wait, that’s a normal existence. Sorry. We were mid-daydreaming there. Actually we’re going for a dinner meeting, which of course means talking yet more stuff to do with work. Albeit … Read more

A large part of this week has revolved around how the crew compliment of the good ship Killing Moon are very much into to varying facets of the ostensible alternative genre. For example, we think it’s perfectly acceptable to listen to Slipknot in a working environment. Ben basically wants to listen to War On Drugs … Read more

We’re having a slight panic that usually coincides with those rare occasions that we decide to get a new phone – which is about every two years or so. We may have wiped it. All of it. All of the numbers and the messages and the information. The pictures. The stuff. Seriously, what the fuck … Read more

Here’s two words for ya. Meetings. The other word is beatings. Today, much as the rap-along goes, they very much meant the same thing to us. Nothing especially bad happened – far from it really – it is simply that nearly every formal chat we have had of late either relates to “the bid-ness” (that’s … Read more

The end is in sight. With these expenses, we mean. Yeah, we know you don’t give much of a shit but this has plagued our world since at least last Friday. Answering the ostenible enquiries such as “why did you spend £53.12 on the 5th June 2014?”; “just how many Facebook posts did you personally … Read more

Money money money money money moneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyuh. We’re really not the biggest fan of accounting at the best of times. Just ask our parents – in fact, ask pretty much anyone’s parents in regards to the amount of shit they’ve had to put up with in raising a child under the broad banner of Generation Y … Read more

It did cross our mind to pack it all in yesterday. Or this morning. Can’t remember. We think we may have even meant it too. The reason we uttered this now-paraphrased sentiment via our whiskey-laced mouth (that was some expensive-ass shit you were buying, Jon Mac. Reeeeeeeeeal expensive) to anyone who gave enough of a … Read more
