Vampire Weekend as sooooo good, here is a 45 minute video of their performance at Radio One's Big Weekend. Bit too much focus on the singer but still - god bless the BBC, if I paid my license fee I would definitely feel like it was being well spent. I'm quite keen to see Vampire Weekend over the summer I think Eden Project or Latitude is the best bet.

For Project Song NPR gives an artist 2 days to make a song based on pictures and stuff they are given, above is Mody's effort. thanks Ped for sending it to me.
Funny I should see this today, last night I challenged myself to write a song and put it on twitter no matter what form it ended up in, just to try and starve off another unproductive night, I just about managed it...
If you type your twitter name into this website it creates a 3D parade where your followers actually follow you, I'm pretty sure it's the greatest thing in the history of time.

By the way, I seem to tweet more than I blog so if you don't follow me or even use twitter perhaps you should, fuck nuts x

The best new band I saw at The Great Escape was easily Esben and the Witch. Dark, atmospheric, Brighton based, and haunting are all words that seem related. They are playing Latitude, Truck, Field Day and Standon calling I think.
A note about Great Escape if you want it. I think it's safe to say we all had a great time, even though it's not very conducive for seeing bands, with all the bands playing at the same time, the venues being spread out and queue being a big issue at the larger venues. It seems a lot more set up for brands to associate with our coolness, every stage and event is aligned with an energy drink or some shit. Having said that Brighton is such a cool place for hanging out none of that really mattered, for every queue there was a a nice tea shop or a cheap chorizo stall to cancel it out.

I have a folder on my desktop called Nice Pictures, it's where I keep nice pictures, I realised this folder was getting quite large, so obviously I made a slide show with music.
p.s there is a disproportionate amount of children in there owning to the fact that we just did those Waitrose ads with the kids trying food...I'm not a nonce.
