*farts uncontrollably* [Oct. 7th, 2008|12:37 am]

This Friday it is the Bizarre Ball in London. Loads of good stuff is happening there (look at www.bizarremag.com where it should tell you about it), and I get to play records in the main room for a while before Zombina play and then again for an hour from about half past midnight. I'm slightly shitting myself about it, so if anyone on here might be going please come and say hello because it will be truly wonderful to see some friendly faces!

PS. If anyone knows why Lil Chris released a new 13-track album today which features 7 songs already released on his last album two years ago, please tell me because it's really baffling me! I can only imagine they thought the old songs were good and seeing as nobody bought the album last time they might as well re-use them...

La Machine... [Sep. 3rd, 2008|05:22 am]

Cor, I haven't been on here for ages and ages and ages again... How is everyone? It's been a bit of a shit few months for me for several reasons (my mum passed away in April followed by losing my job when Fab/Roadkill closed down in May, followed by a few months trying to sort my brain out) but finally there is something to be excited about again - La Machine.

www.lamachine.co.uk if you've never heard of it, and here's part of their latest newletter which almost made me explode with anticipation when I read it yesterday:

The city is rumbling...

Final preparations are underway for the arrival of the mysterious La Machine commissioned by Liverpool ’08 as a highlight of the city’s Capital of Culture celebrations. Rehearsals have been continuing in a secret, out-of-town location, and speculation is mounting in the city as to the identity of the enormous mechanical creature at the heart of the event. Meanwhile, rumour has it that roads have been mysteriously closed and street furniture removed, and even that cranes have unexpectedly appeared in the middle of the night on sites close to the city centre…

------------------

I've been following it on the internet over the last couple of weeks, and at about 4 o'clock this morning I saw what claimed to be a schedule of events for the next few days - starting at 7am today, when La Machine would appear in the city centre for the first time. Thinking they'd be putting it up overnight if it's going to be there first thing in the morning, I went to see if there was any sign of it (thankfully working nights again means 4am is a completely normal and acceptable time to me). And sure enough, there it was. I'm not saying what it is (because some people on here might not want to know), but it was really quite stunning and I actually got a bit breathless looking at it. It felt like I wasn't meant to be there, watching it being put together and stuff. All I'll say is if you're in Liverpool today you must go to Lime Street station and look up at the buildings next to it!

goodnight! [Mar. 8th, 2008|02:19 am]

Waaah I just remembered that Livejournal exists! I think it was because I saw someone's username on Myspace that reminded me of someone else's Livejournal name. Or something.

Anyway, as a bit of an update this is goodnight and a fond farewell to my days as fearless leader (ahem...) of Zombina & The Skeletones. I'd love to say there'd been a big fight or argument or something, but it's nothing as exciting as that I'm afraid - after ten years of being in/working with bands, I've decided it's time to move on and do something else for a while. Being the lovely people that they are, the band have pointed out that - like with a good soap opera character - the door will be left open if I decide I want to come back at any point. For now though, it's goodnight from me (and goodnight from him).

Massive thanks (seriously, thank you) to anyone reading this who has helped us out or just been nice to us/me over the last few years - you're all legends and it's been an absolute fucking pleasure. The Skeletones will return (hopefully sooner rather than later), and there's still the small matter of a stunning properly-produced album waiting to be unleashed on the planet...

That's all, thanks again for being kind and polite and stuff - you can find me at www.myspace.com/iwannawannashocktreatment if anyone wants to keep in touch!

Be good to yourselves, and each other.
