Will try and get to the triple header of Gnod, Part Chimp and Hey Collosus in London in November.

Had no idea Kowloon Walled City were in the UK. Was just skimming through DICE and they’re at the Underworld on Friday. Result!
Wasn’t that keen on Grievances when it first came out but giving it another listen now and it’s actually really really good.

Can’t bloody wait now can I

I’m hoping they just play all of Container Ships. I’m still amazed they’re playing the Old England. Great little venue but 50 people and it’s rammed!

Anyone going to the Sophie show at the Royal Festival Hall as part of Nile Rogers’ Meltdown Festival?

I just can’t see how a sit down Sophie show would work…

Very pleased they were a late addition to the Fluff Fest line-up

Currently doing aphex at WHP on my own. Not drinking, am driving, happy to do a lift

The Cure / Mogwai / The Twilight Sad

BC Camplight
The Twilight Sad
Self Esteem


Lust for Youth are good

They were very good last night.
Hope you enjoy(ed) them too

Got another KWC t-shirt to add to the collection :star_struck::star_struck:

Loved the Bristol show. Bought Container Ships and hugged it close on the late bus home to stop my wasted self from losing it.


Vampillia in August. Nowt else.
