  • We could have really done with being in the office a bit earlier today. Double release day. Had to do promo and interviews at shit. Ironically these seem to be more aimed at us than the actual bands involved in our much-loved New Moons: Volume II. But, hey, we didn't. We had a snooze. That's right. We said a big ol' fuck you to our iPhone alarm, seemingly designed with the most-piercing resonant frequency known to mankind projected through the very same speakers that really fuck us off when we actually want to play something to someone, and we sank into our newly-laden memory foam mattress (it really DOES work), and we had a damn good sleep. Those hours between 6am and 9am. Man, that's the BEST sleep. The super-hazey, still-kinda-asleep-but-also-kinda-awake, lucid, toasty, warming-glowey kinda sleep. Current Track Of The Day Deep from sassy-looking pop starlett Jones (impossible to google. Literally impossible. Turns out there are a lot of people called Jones) seems to instill a similar sense of well-being...

    Feeling particularly sorry for ourselves this drab Sunday afternoon. Yes, of course we went out last night and of course we are in our standardised-state of feeling a bit wrong as a result. Yesterday in itself was a debacle from start to finish. We didn’t get to completing our long-awaited task of putting … Read more

Two main bitches today. Well, there is a third, but that is to do with the cable for the telly in our living room going missing, which suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks (Tim was nearly in tears about it this morning. Kid likes his Great British Bake-Off, y’know?). Primary bitch is visas. Fucking tourist visas. Just, like, let us … Read more

  Fuck. Tired. Back is buggered. Moving is a real pain in the A. And the B. And the C, etc. Given our to-date high-ratio of throwing money at problems that most people deal with in a hands-on kind of way – for example, moving rates highly in this list of accolades, but also cleaning, … Read more

  If we had a quid for each time we’ve uttered the powerful phrase “it’ll be fine” over the last week or so leading up to our inevitable habitual move “just up the road” from where we are currently parked – surrounded by labelled boxes, industrial-strength bin liners, and some other rather non-descript boxes in … Read more

[Release: Looks Announce New Single "Back To The Fire" Via Killing Moon]

We picked a hell of a fucking day to start packing up, well, everything. For it is flat-moving day. Or, rather, Tim has just decided this for us. He lured us into a false reality of giving and fraternal love by making us breakfast at 1pm; once our defences were lowered by the delicious chocolate … Read more

It finally happened. Like it has never happened before; and given the state we’re in right now, we might not live long enough for it to ever happen again. Yes, ladies and gentledudes, we are hungover. Third night on the trot. The magical fucking number. We thought we were unstoppable. Things try to stop us … Read more

[Track Of The Day: Jasmin Kaset "Porno Mtn"/"You Can Never Go Home Again"]

Much as if we were living the life of Scott Pilgrim – in that occasionally we imagine our waking life to be exactly like a computer game; for example when we’re on a particularly busy tube platform and we’re navigating around people who like to suddenly brake in the worst possible position and/or other people … Read more

Soooooooooooooo. Royal Blood. Numero uno. Pole position. A lot of fuckin’ sales. Bigness. One of you lot owes us a fiver. We know that’s not going to happen. Let’s just say a lot of people owe us a lot of fivers for similar accolades. Hell, maybe we’ll take such matters into our own hands one … Read more
