What I got up to last week (w/end 18th Jan)


Thought you'd all appreciate an update into the life and times of me... actually it was quite a quiet week last week- I was mega tied up with sorting out the finer details of the Phoenix Live Sessions (which were ridiculously sucessful, if I do say so myself- In fact if you go to <--- this place, then there's interviews, photos (a really bad one of me right at the top as well. Marvellous), and will soon be sound clips and videos, so you can feel like you were there, even if you missed it! We drank the bar out of everything, including all the obscure real ales and the dodgy spirits that nobody likes (I say we- it wasnt just the phoenix peeps, it was the 300 odd people that came for a marvellous day of music that got in on the act too!)

Aaanyway, apart from the gig organising shenanigans, we had Avril Lavigne as the artist of the week- I found a very odd version of Girlfriend, with the chorus sung in Mandarin... sort of sounded like they were playing it backwards! And I stupidly managed to get myself roped into running for 6 miles, all in the name of Sport Relief. Thank you very much, Mr Bryan Powis! (The first training run was yesterday- Was meant to be half a mile- start off slow and all that, but ended up being a mile and a half. Ive not run anywhere for about 4 years and nearly died!). I'll keep you up to date with my progress in future weeks- Its on the 16th March, so Ive got about 8 weeks to whip myself into some form of shape. Meep.

See ya next week!
