Cities On Fire 

Long Tall Wanda was freshly returned from a UNESCO trip hectoring endangered mountain peoples about the perils of reality TV, or something. On reflection I think I might have given her a hard time, but the girl can more than stick up for herself. I like her a lot. She has friends who’d rather go to the theatre. I like Leanne’s jacket, I think it’s new, and I’m looking forward to vodka week.

Guy Garvey from Elbow was in the audience at the Jenny Lewis *sigh* show and he kept bloody looking up at me, as if to say “The boots on the other foot now. See how you like that, pal.”

Jenny Lewis *sigh* was extremely good and so was Johnathan Rice. It’s not my place to interfere but maybe those guys should get together. They certainly know how to put on a show.

In other Ticket Stub Temple Of Coolness news, Calexico and Iron And Wine were mighty fine. We liked the lad who sang gently, but we also liked the man who sang incredibly can you hear me back in Mexico loudly. He stamped his feet and made clicky noises.

Sigur Ros were beautiful at the Apollo, although the event would have been improved if people hadn’t been allowed to traipse throughout the performance emptying their bladders. I suppose it’s only to be expected at a venue sponsored by a pissy lager corporation. Pete and Mark from Elbow were there too.
Call me paranoid but I think my favourite alt-LS Lowry rockers might be stalking me back.

A man rang up and said that he spends four hours a day in his car. Good grief. Not even homeless people who live in their cars spend that kind of time in their cars. Probably.

O says that I cheer her up, which cheers me up no end. Cheers O.
