  • So much to do. People to see. Places to go. Things to book. Its a lot yo. Yes, still. We are just bleating on and on and ooonnnnn endlessly about how how ruddy bogged down we permanently seem to be. Are you getting bored of our shit yet? The traffic numbers would suggest otherwise, given that we've already passed last year's total site visits and we're not quite done with 2015 just yet. Also, advertisers seem to be getting in touch thick and fast. That's nice. According to one of them, given our traffic, we're worth about $80-$150 USD per week right now, depending on placement and frame size of the advert in question. That's nice. It would involve having to give space to shit like....dunno, books or something. What books? Dunno. There are distinct reasons we have elected to keep ourselves off the Hype Machine and evade offers of advert placements (although once we did consider having one about a car, but we were only willing to do so if the people concerned actually gave us the car in question. They were pretty adamant), and...

Fuck. We need another day to rest up. A late-ass clubnight on the Friday and a pretty comprehensive wedding plot the following day do naaaaaaaaaaaaay mix well. Although both went beautifully, thank you very much. CHIMES boomed it right up at Koko, and we’ve got the Periscope video to back that shit up. Allow the … Read more

Big day. Big night. Big weekend, non Radio 1-related (chortlechortleshittiestjokeeverloletc). How’s it all going? Got that Friday feeling yet? We have actually had to be reminded as to which day this is exactly. They’re starting to blur together. Genuinely convinced it was Thursday upon waking, which really didn’t make the tailor very happy when we … Read more

Superfunhappygottagorealsoonletsdothisblogpostasquicklyaspossiblesowecangetthefuckoutofhere alert! What’s good? Malpas‘ album launch tonight at The Islington, that’s what. Jack Garratt‘s leaving drinks is also pretty good. We’re very much looking forward to seeing the chap off as he darts off on the magical rainbow road of musical glory to lands afar, although we more likely than not will see him … Read more

We got home at 10pm last night. 10-fuggin-pee-em. We’re up to our proverbial bean bags in it right now. Turns out a Record Of The Day feature for one artist you work with; a 6 Music playlist for another; a prominently-produced record for another; and a top 20 record in a couple of territories for … Read more

  Bloody hell. Weekend? Didn’t happen, yo. We were busier on the weekend than we were on the two-ish days previous. Seriously. We actually ran out of shit to do. Almost as if we were being punished for being too efficient. Or perhaps we were fucking things up and not realising it? Looked at our … Read more

Too. Many. Festivals. This. Weekend. You’ve got Latitude (and indeed Longitude, which we kinda wish we were at. We’ve never had an artist on our record label playing the main stage at quite-a-big festival before, so that’ll be nice. Or rather it would be. We’re sure it will still be nice. Niccccccccccccccccccccccce). Uhhhhhhhhh, Lovebox. Apparently … Read more

Hey, you know what’s cool about your one-month-old iPhone 6? Definitely not it’s ability to fuck us right up, that’s for sure. We started the day so fresh as well. Got over our feeling-sort-of-violated situation last night by sinking a few jars with our boy Jerry and our beautiful Finnish ladyfriend (apologies, promise-to-ourselves-not-to-drink-during-the-week. But fuck … Read more

On our very first visit to Primavera Sound – indeed, during one of the very first live sets we watched with our homebrews Chris’n’Jerry, who were Delorean as we recall – some caught some bastard going through our bag, presumably to steal things. He wasn’t very good at this, clearly. One simple reverse-arm-grab and severe … Read more

So fuckin’ tired. This weekend might as well have not happened at all. We’re supposed to be all re-charged and that. And yet, we are not. We didn’t even do anything that trying, other than watch the tennis. Perhaps this is attributable to hanging out with Chris Duncan and his army of pals on Saturday; … Read more
