not dead.

contrary to popular belief/hope i am not dead/kidnapped/holed up in a Fritzl kinda way. though my new room in London is pretty bloody small. Offset Festival was bloody brilliant, i can't say enough good things about it. clean toilets throughout, teensy proportion of dickheads, no trouble getting between stages or to the front, no crowd surfers!!! (god i hate you people), amaaaazing line up that was well executed with little/no hiccups, dodgems wooo, relatively normal priced cider and a pretty laid back attitude all round.

i did get called a 'wasteman' though. by a boy who managed to pee in his own face. sorry i didn't want to shake your hand, how incredibly rude of me!

anywaaay Gang Of Four were my obvious highlight. followed by an incredible performance by Plastic Passion, and Metronomy were excellent.

i've only just managed to read all my emails so if i haven't gotten back to you please accept an apology, i'm doing my best to work through them. i feel totally out of touch with the music so you'll all have to give me a couple of days to get back into the swing of things!

for now here's a pretty fantastic remix of the latest Van She single.

Van She - Changes (G.L.O.V.E.S Remix)
