We arrived at John Henry's (rehearsal room) at like 1pm to set up some of our other equipment to make sure it all worked as we have a festival in Portugal one day, and one in Scotland the day after, so 1 set needs to go to one, and one to the other. This took most the day for the poor crew and a little bit for me.
I had a few hours off so I went to Wireless festival in Hyde Park. I can easily say it is the most threatened I have EVER felt at a festival! Even the… Continue

So todays festival looked like a village fate as we rolled in on the bus. We all looked out of the window of the back lounge and "awww"ed at it. It's funny how after a year of touring we found ourselves awwing at a festival that must have held 15,000 people per stage!!
The setting was beautiful. A big old stereotypical french house held all of the dressing rooms in. Each of which would have made a dream flat. The food was stereotypical french food - cheeses, wines, (and nothing for… Continue

Well that show didn't turn out as well as I thought!
The boiling texas-esque sunshine turned into some tropical monsoon! The stage flooded and everything got pushed back.
Mid set we have to come off, move all our equipment to the back of the stage and carry on as we were getting soaked. To be honest, the rain was welcomed as it was so clammy.
I'm in Caen now, in the quaintest little festival in the world. We've got a few friends here today and you couldn't ask… Continue

Pinch punch first of the month!
We played at Werchter Festival last night in Belgium, and I can honestly say that it was one of our finest shows! Our favourite show from the year before was also in Belgium..the Belgums, Belgians? are bananas!
We stayed to watch Muse on the mainstage. I know they always win "Best Live Act" but I wondered, "Did people just vote for them just because they always win it?" - but no, they really are one of the best live bands I have seen.… Continue

We're on route to Belgium. Back on the festival runs which should be fun.
We've just driven past my house on the bus. It's always been a dream of mine to get picked up by a tourbus outside of your house...today COULD have been the day!
Before bus call, I went to the Old Blue Last in Shoreditch to see some hardcore bands. I had to leave before the headliners "Throats" but could the band "Last Witness" who I had never heard before, and they KILLED it! So so heavy, and tight… Continue

I'm in another club?! HOW did this happen?! For a guy that doesn't drink, I go out a lot. There's only so much tap water one can drink..I reckon I have saved about £10,000 on drinking water in night clubs as opposed to booze.
Tonight, its White Heat, at Madame Jo Jos. My flat mate and I are on match making duty. I thought it was going well, but as I write this, a friend of mine (who I paired up with my best friend) has come back and after them flirting all night saying he's "not her… Continue

A much needed chill day today. Didn't leave my sofa, except for coming to the club my flatmate works in (which is where I am now)
Why am I writing my blog when I should be partying hard? Well, I don't drink, so there's not really much you can do!
I'm faced with a situation. My ex girlfriend is here who owes me £100..my friends are telling me I should go and say hello, shake her hand, and when she shakes back, grab her hand and drag her to the nearest cash point..too… Continue

Robyn’s new album, “Body Talk Pt. 1,” provides eight handsomely formed, near-perfect pop songs that are embedded with a casual kind of feminism. Robyn, a small, delicate-looking thirty-one-year-old Swede, is remarkably adept at producing pleasurable, accessible pop that, like some kind of… Continue

It was a sad day for England today with the football. The Germany /England football features have been huge since 1966 and apart from that day, we always seem to fail.
The day today was all about that. Oh, and sitting in the park. I came back to Hyde Park to finish up at Hard Rock Calling, though I've been asleep for hours on a bean bag in the sunshine. Tough Sunday really..
Off to go and see Paul McCartney play in a minute. I've not seen any bands today, but my dad would… Continue

I got back from Glastonbury VERY late last night and barely slept from adrenaline (that, a drunken loud flatmate and a cat who scratches my door all night)
Today has all been about Hard Rock Calling, a festival in Hyde Park. For once, it wasn't for work, well, for me, my girlfriend was DJ'ing the tent for her work, but it meant we got wristbands for the weekend! I'm all about the headliners. Jamiroqui AND Stevie Wonder!
"Deeper Underground" was one of the first singles I bought,… Continue

So we played Glastonbury. On the second biggest stage. Just after Phoenix. WHAT?!?!
It was as great as I had always imagined it to be, and at my favourite time of day at a festival, as the evening is drawing in, but the sun is out enough to still wear your shades on stage!!
We had a set of gold palm trees,our usual set, and a few more people to help us out, including 4 amazing dancers, 3 steel pan players, 2 turtle doves and Glen Gregory from Heaven 17. He came on and sang… Continue

"At its core however, it is “Dancing On My Own” that embodies the heart and soul of this mini-record; a 21st century reconfiguration of the classic discotheque record, colored by icy rapid-fire synthesizers and flawless Swede-pop production courtesy of producer, Patrik Berger. The song is the purest definition of sad disco, as well as the logical artistic progression after the success of her previous tear-jerking stormer, “With Every Heartbeat.” For this song alone, the… Continue

"Opening with "Don't Fu**king Tell Me What To Do," an amusing litany of buzz-killers drizzled over minimalist beats, the set really shines when she teams up with M.I.A.'s old partner-in-crime, Diplo, on the slinky "Dancehall Queen," and Norwegian producers Röyksopp for the simmering synth-pop diss… Continue
