You're Not Real and I Can't Talk to You

So, another line from "If Only Words" - seems like I can't get all those violins out of my head. Just a quick one today, to let you know I'm taking the the Boring Night Bus to London this evening. I was going to meet Pam Berry at Crystal Palace the next morning for some coffe and an interview, but that's been cancelled as she's in hospital giving birth to her second indie baby! Friday evening I'm off downtown to meet my friend Alice and go and see The Bobby McGees. Then on Saturday a walk down The Mall to the respectable ICA. Still Doing It For Fun no 2. On Friday they will have Magic Numbers, Subway Sect and Go-Kart Mozart (I'm missing him again!) playing. That was night no 1. I'm going to see Roddy Frame, Phil Wilson and The Wolfhounds! Hopefully I can interview the latter two. It's supposed to be a celebration of the original c86 week at the ICA in 1986 and they will show clips from Bob Stanley's forthcoming Hungry Beat documentary. I hope to meet Alistair Fitchett, Martijn Grooten, and Stephen Pastel of course, who is playing some records together with Katrina. I don't know how they'll recognise me, but if they - or you - want to have a chat I shall be wearing a dotted black shirt and a red tartan tie. And I'll be giving out the last flyers for the blog, so we can finally get the competition underway!

I honestly find it quite flattering to see my small name standing there between those big ones, but sadly enough, I'm not going to make it. No time, no money. :(
I suppose you'll have to come down to the Devon south coast to have a real life chat (and to hand out your flyers). Or to wait for me to have found a good job, that makes me able to go to London every fortnight :)

Funny Martijn, i was just thinking the same :-) And Chris, really nice to meet you. I hope you had a good time and managed to get some of your interviews in. Did you talk to Lawrence much? Hope you enjoy Young and Foolish...
