  • A very "American evening" was had by us, who is we, this one just gone past. At least, that's what our new friend Hamish (he manages a delight called Lapsley - she done got signed by XL Recordings, dontchaknow - and has been rolling with Draper for a bit this year and all, which is nice) described it as. How do we know Hamish is our new friend? Why indeed. What is the price of friendship these days, as far as we're concerned. Why, it is a double chicken fillet pitta (lemon and herb, not because we're a pussaaaaaaaay, but because it is delicious) with cheese, with garlic bread and peri-peri fries. Otherwise known as the Nando's Golden Spesh, as far as we're concerned anyway. Yes, to be our mate, you must buy us chicken. Anyway, if by "American evening" our guy Hamish meant tapping up Prides (way to go chaps and props to our lifelong chum Ally McCrae for looking after them and generally being a boss at life) at Barfly for a grand total of 10 minutes before realising how fucking late we were for the Troupe Records launch...

  Anyone else feel like they’ve been robbed of a night of sleep right now? We don’t get it. Stayed in office till 8pm. Got home with additional cargo of food from co-op destined for the cooking pot for the first time in, like, a million years (as far as we’re concerned) in a vain … Read more

Yesterday was the first time in quite a while – especially following our now-infamous journey to the so-called old country where we, y’know, ate loads of food, saw some palaces, thought and largely discussed life and shit, etc – where we felt our world was ending. What goes up must inevitably come down, as some … Read more

  CMJ. Seeeeeeeee emmmmmmmmm juuuuuuuuuuuuy. Are we pissed off that we’re not going? People have indeed tried to wind us up about it this week, whether directly or indirectly. Jon Mac and buddy-boy Andy Savours were giving it all “oooooooooh you’re going to miss out big time, you twat” on Friday night whilst we were … Read more

We were going to write a rather typical and lengthy-worded blog post about, well, any old shit that we’ve been up to (we’re hungover today, if you care and/or are at all still surprised by such a revelation anymore). Heck, we might still do. But all of the wonderful tales of the neverending adventures endured … Read more

Today is one of those where we feel we’ve done fuck-all, but in fact we have done quite a lot indeed. What have we done today? Well….we ordered a cleaner to come and, y’know, clean at our resident stomping ground and/or the mean streets of Highgate this morning. That was good. We came to the … Read more

We got picked on by a schoolchild on the way into work this morning. Well, ok, let us revise that statement. By “picked on” we mean “shoulder-barged-into-to-impress-the-person-in-question’s-school-buddies” who took great delight in bearing witness to this display of male dominance; by “schoolchild”, we mean one of those weird stages of adolescent development whereby, in the … Read more

  We’re cranky. Ben noticed as soon as we walked through the door. He saw our weakness, and by heck did he ever take advantage of this new-found vulnerability. He poked. He teased. He joked. He stopped one step short of basically doing what we do to him on a regular basis, which is catching … Read more

Euuuurrrrrrgghhhhhhhuuuuuyeayuh. How are you? Did we see you the other night? Did we remember to kiss the prettiest girl at the right time? Did we remember to say cheers? Did we make sure that everybody had a good time? We have a few answers, but more far more many questions than that beyond the aforementioned. … Read more

[Interview: Salt Ashes]

We had a chat with the new intern yesterday – who is also, coincidentally, the first member of the more refined gender group (and that’s women, before you start getting clever and all punned-up about it) to grace the overglorified living room/office that constitutes the hyve of Killing Moon daily activity – about what they … Read more
