Currently lazing just off Lake Windermere, G&T in hand, looking out over the hills, on one end of a ropy as hell internet connection

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)

Please?

Ahem, sorry about that. Music you say?
