The problem with popping back home for a few days at a time, is that you end up throwing a lot of stuff on the floor and rushing out back on tour again.
As we're back for a few days, I have no excuse not to knuckle down and tackle this mess!…

I'm ruined. Absolutely ruined.
Festival season has well and truly started. We got back from the Isle of Wight this morning and to say I am tired is an understatement, that and the jet-lag from the US tour. We stayed up until the early hours eating Kit Kats and Frazzles (which are these Bacon Flavoured crisps...other worldly).
I was just explaining to a friend how the summer is the best time to be in a band. You hang out with all your friends in other bands, play big shows… Continue

Festival season has well and truly begun.
We've spent the day at the Isle of Wight for the festival, and I had forgotten just how much I love this part of the year.
We played to 10,000 people tonight right before Orbital. The stage was enormous and the tent was rammed. We had keyboard problems, but that's nothing new! Mickey covered it well, and I'm not sure many people actually realised... I got a text from my sister saying it was live on TV too! Luckily it wasn't the… Continue

It really is so nice to be back in London. I do complain about it all the time but being back in familiar surroundings in your own house is the one.
Today, we met up at our usual rehearsal space to get everything ready for festival season, which I am so pleased to say starts TOMORROW! We head down to the Isle of White festival in, surprisingly, The Isle of White. Some great bands playing, particularly 'Maplas' who I am very excited to catch live again on the acoustic… Continue

The flight took a year and a day to leave NY but we're finally back.
When tour is over, we try to get back to our normal lives, although more and more, I am realising that the touring is now our "normal life" and that time at home is our alien surrounding.
Mike has been with his girlfriend, Mickey has spent the whole day asleep, and Elly and I have been at our friend Emily's birthday party in South London. It's nice to see friendly faces that we… Continue

Last summer we did a lot of TV promo work in England, real big live shows. I got into this amazing habit of dropping my drumsticks every time the camera came near me. I obviously had a "really good time"..
We just performed on 'Good Morning America' and I played holding my sticks tighter then a travelling student on his gap year holding on to his childhood. THANK GOD they stayed in my hands....until next time!
It went well. After the commercial break, it came back to a… Continue

Last night was bar far our best New York show to date. Terminal 5 was sold out and there were so many happy faces. Thank you.
Met David Byrne too. He's in Talking Heads. The rest of the band were going nuts about this. I put on a brave face and smiled politely, whilst not telling anyone that I… Continue

Denver last night was bananas! Probably the best show we've ever played, and the best response we've ever had.
We're currently sat at the airport about to board our flight to New York for our biggest NY show to date, and we're all buzzing for it.
Everyone says… Continue

"Taken from La Roux's 2009 MTV UK Live Sessions, this performance of "Bulletproof" demonstrates the band's ability to re-create their layers of drum-machine programming and keyboards. It's also a pretty great example of singer Elly Jackson's outstanding pipes."
