William's Daily La Blog 26 - 30th June 2010

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 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 £ 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

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

William's Daily La Blog - 24th June 2010

Todays blog is all about Spark aka Jess Morgan.

I went to see her play at the Macbeth in East London tonight after seeing her supporting Marina and the Diamonds the other week, and she absolutely blew me away.

She has the sweetest voice, almost like a sweet teenage non haggard Amy Winehouse? Actually that's probably a really bad comparison, but never mind.

Every song could be a Top 10 in the UK, especially this tune called "Scream". Check her out… Continue

I woke up this morning missing a lot of my friends from back up north, so I got on a train, and 5 hours later, we were prepping the BBQ in their back garden!

England won their world cup match today, and the whole country had amazing weather, so the atmosphere over here is buzzing. I for one have had a great day back up in Nottingham in the house I was planning on moving into before I moved to London.

I'm going to get up early and go see my parents tomorrow, then back down… Continue

So I can't really go into much detail about what we did today. We were rehearsing for Glastonbury and we had some people pop in to lend us a hand...I'm not mentioning anymore as I want it to be a surprise!

The weather was great though, and lovely Yamaha sent us some more drums which always makes it a good day. Jamiroqui were next door today and Mark Ronson was downstairs. An all star rehearsal space today.

To be perfectly honest, the most exciting part of my day was the… Continue

Travel days. How exciting.

Its taken us about 12 hours to get back from Southside Festival, but I'm now in a cab back to my house.

I watched a documentary about the band behind the majority of Mo Town recordings. Such talented musicians, but very sad to see how badly they were ripped off..

The highlight of the trip back was on the ferry earlier. In England we had a kids TV show called Rainbow with big stuffed animals as the main characters, and a presenter… Continue

I feel a bit like Boy Meets World writing these blogs. I hear myself say them in the same way he narrates the show..the girl in that was really cute, I wonder what she looks like now?

Anyway we just finished playing at Southside Festival in Germany. Supposedly it had rained since Wednesday morning so the site was so covered in mud, cars getting dragged out of the car park by tractors and all! For a crowd to still have that much enthusiasm after being p*ssed on for 5 days, is quite… Continue

So I'm stood side stage at Hurricane Festival in Germany watching a band who all have animal masks on, all wearing different coloured tuxedo s. Sounds weird already right? That not to mention the male and female clowns doing interprative dance next to them...oh, and the mime artists...Germans.

Someone decided it would be a great idea to put us on at 1am today...1am! Come on, what are you supposed to do at a cold, rainy festival from 7pm till 1am?! I'm more sensitive now then I was… Continue

The World Cup. What an odd thing it is.

In England, everyone puts up their flags, paints their faces and gets overly patriotic, but sadly, this comes hand in hand with people becoming massive drunk, lairy idiots.

I tend to not go out a huge amount when I get off tour, mostly because we don't ever get to be at home when we are working, but my girlfriend and I decided to go to "The Flowerpot" in Camden to watch the England match. 5 minutes in, a group of 'lairy lads' started… Continue

It's hard to write about a day where I've not done a great deal. I did have a good day though, in bed 'til 3, watched "Fear and Loathing.." And my flatmate made Brownies!

But that's not exciting to read is it? I promise it will get more exciting when we're back on the road!

London really is beautiful in the sunshine. I'm currently stood outside Topshop on Oxford Street waiting for Mickey so we can go and blag some free sunglasses from Ray Ban. We really are so cheeky, as Mickey got 2 free pairs at the weekend, and I got a pair of Ray Bans and some free glasses (thank you Foureyes) earlier today!! Still, they're the perks of being in a band!!

Quite a slow day in Camp La Roux today. Elly is just chilling at home, as is Mike, and I'm just pottering about… Continue

As a nice surprise today, I was invited to go see my friend Steph and his band Gallows support Cypress Hill! Frank the frontman realised that the response wasn't as good as one would have hoped, and held it together so well..."Who invited the Stoners? F**k off home". Well said.

I am writing this in the changeover between the two bands. The change over used to excite me so much, and now I know that people will just be getting ready and that the mysterious backstage, isn't really that… Continue
