William's Daily La Blog 40 - 16th July 2010

Day off! We had a day off in sunny LA and the weather was just fantastic (obviously).

I met up with Mikey, Dave (our soundguy) and Stoney (our tech) for breakfast in a cafe down the road, and sat with them in the sunshine talking about the show and other tours. We decided to take it to the pool, and went back to the hotel.

Now I took a risk. Every time I even think about the sun, I burn. Not like a little bit pink, but lobster red. Last month we were in Kansas and I sat by… Continue

The LA show. These are always pretty important, but (touch wood) always SUPER good. We were playing Club Nokia which holds 2,500. It's funny to think that in August last year, we were playing at The Troubadour which holds maybe 200 tops?! What a year.

The venue was in downtown LA, which is an area we haven't really been to before. It was in a shopping centre too, similar to the Islington Academy in London actually. Mickey and I went outside to see some fans who had been waiting for 8… Continue

William's Daily La Blog 38 - 14th July 2010

After kicking jet lag in the a** (9 hour sleep!) I got up and had a wonder around the area we were staying in, in San Diego. I just wanted some breakfast, as I'd not really eaten the day before. "Right, burger restaurant....yep, there's another one....right there's a mexican...oh, a diner, more burgers, yep..." - oh yes, I forgot that we are back in America and all you can eat is BURGERS AND MEXICAN FOOD!! WHAT IS ALL THAT ABOUT?! I found what looked like a nice little french cafe just around… Continue

William's Daily La Blog 37 - 13th July 2010

21 hours of travelling is never fun. I left my flat at 11am UK time and got a cab to Heathrow, London, then flew from London to Los Angeles, then drove from Los Angeles to San Diego and got in at midnight West Coast time. I could have ended my life there and then, I was SO SO tired! But instead, like any normal human being, I went to bed.

Strangely enough, the plane is the only place I ever seem to be able to write music. I can look at this blank computer screen for hours at home… Continue

La Roux US Articles and Interviews

While we Americans did just celebrate our independence from England, there are a handful of British imports we should be thankful for — Flake bars, Russell and, particularly, La Roux. The twosome — Elly Jackson and Ben Langmaid — hit mainstream in the States by the end of 2009 with their curious, impossibly compelling mix of 8-bit-bent electro-pop laced with Jackson’s haunting, hunted vocals and undeniable amounts of vulnerability. La Roux’s style — a decadent yet detached,…

La Roux Takes It's Best Shot - LA Times.

With hits such as 'Bulletproof,' the British duo fronted by Elly Jackson is being embraced in the U.S. It'll play sold-out Club Nokia in L.A.

Elly Jackson has never felt comfortable in girly clothing. In a pop world of in-your-face sexuality and scantily clad stars tiptoeing around in high… Continue

Robyn Looks Ahead to 'Gangsta' Snoop Duet on 'Body Talk, Pt. 2'

As she prepares to launch a North American tour, Swedish electro-pop diva Robyn is forging ahead with plans to release three "Body Talk" albums, possibly getting all of them out before the end of the calendar year.

William's Daily La Blog - 12th July 2010

1 day.

1 day off before going to america for 5 weeks. Its the longest we have been on tour for, and such a long way away too. It will be good, but hard at the same time.

Clothes had to be washed, new drumsticks collected, contact lenses bought, the bank to visit, and girlfriend to lunch with, and a 5 weeks to be backed into a suitcase.


And I made it out to a party in the evening! Needless to say, I was/am absolutely knackered by 3am..but by the… Continue
