It's been ages since my last confession. When I started this blog I was determined to keep it regular, but being the lazy scatterbrain good-for-nothing lowlife I am, this whole thing has fallen into a state of disrepair. I bet you've been chewing away at your own knuckles in anticipation of finding out what I've been doing with my abundance of free time, and wilting away into a mere husk of your former self without the reassurance these blog entries provide you. Well, I think that says more about you than it does me.
Last weekend Undereducated put on 2 big big days of stuff in Northampton. And it was good in varying degrees. Friday I found myself really disappointed, mostly due to the fact I played first, opening the night, and got caught up in my own self-loathing, meaning I couldn't enjoy the rest of the evening. Which sucks, because I missed the whole of Anni Rossi's set, which I'm told was amazing. I am an idiot. Then on saturday we had a whole day with Gay Against You. Well, not a whole day. A mixture of traffic problems and other acceptable excuses meant GvsY were not able to carry out the afternoon workshop which we'd planned. However they did do a great improvised set as part of the Fishmarket's opening of their new Alex Gene Morrison exhibition, and then tore the Labour Club apart with one of the most fun half hours ever. I also got to meet Gentle, Friendly, who are 2 lovely boys from Birmingham (via London) and played fantastically, House Mouse blew everyone away with his midi-guitar, laptop and interesting hooded sweatshirt, and Thrulk showed how much they are improving and fast becoming my favourite band in Northamptonshire. Just yesterday I finished uploading a WHOLE BUNCH of videos from the weekend to YouTube so that's worth checking out.
So here's a song by Gay Against You, it's from their album Musclemilk (on Adaadat) and it's ace. Also, recently I've been listening to the forthcoming Liars (self titled) album and I'm struggling to get to grips with it, it just seems too easy and straightforward. Anyway this is a track from that.
