Three on a Thursday #177


Summers here!

And just in time for Glasto as well, which to be fair descends into a Somme-like mire of cowshit and mud, complete with Trenchfoot and dodgy-food-van-related dysentery pretty much every other year.

Not that I’m jealous of those going.

Obviously.

Not even a little bit.

Three on a Thursday #173


Last night was mad prep for my eldest’s 8th birthday today (Happy Birthday Charlie!), so no red hot Thursday action from me, but I’m making up for it now.

Tracks below the break, as per usual.

Went to see good buddies of the blog, The Allergies, at their triumphant live gig at Bristol’s Colston Hall last Friday – an epic time was had by all, and afterwards, there was a proper spotter-fest at Cosies, with all sorts of oddities and rarities being spun by DJ Format, aided and abetted by local vinyl pusher and fount of all things record related, John  Stapleton.

Aaaah, and I’ve recovered – spent the weekend awake in the early hours of the morning, and went to three different parties …. unfortunately, the parties were all for kids under 6, and the sleeplessness was due to the youngest being awake half the night.

FML.

Still, we’ve always got the music, right?

Oops – one day late.

Still it’s to your benefit, as I was out watching two of Bristol’s finests funk DJs at The Lanes last night – The Allergies and Boca 45 (guys, it was lovely to see you lot again)

Still, belated tunes eh?

It’s felt like spring this week hasn’t it? Sun on my back, not getting utterly soaked and frozen cycling to work  – I could get used to this (sadly, knowing the British weather, this is as good as it’ll get all year …)

Right, tunes.
