the hits would be so nice but they just don't come


i went to see the pastels and tenniscoats last night at the bush hall. it was such a lovely evening. everything off the new album sounded really beautiful. especially 'vivid youth', 'mou mou rainbow', and the bit when stephen pastel first comes in in 'song for a friend'. and katrina sang 'the viaduct' and 'start slowly so we sound like a loch'. i think she's probably the best female singer in the world right now, along with tracyanne campbell and liz from the school. which reminds me, camera obscura should have been nominated for the mercury music prize for 'my maudlin career', but they weren't and i think that's wrong. anyway, it was a really special night and i've got the badge to prove it.

we're playing a couple of festivals this weekend. first on saturday we're playing in the afternoon at the end of the road festival in dorset, and then on sunday we're sailing over to the isle of wight to play bestival. i'm excited. i just hope everyone else is. we were going to be supporting the lemonheads next wednesday too, but we're not anymore because it's been cancelled. which is annoying because i was really looking forward to it. if anyone was thinking of coming we're very sorry. it wasn't our fault. someone else closed the london paper.

anyway, i'm tired now. i just wanted to write something about the pastels and tenniscoats while i remembered because it was so amazing.

i'm sorry i've written so infrequently over the summer. i just haven't been full of words. hopefully i'll have more in me in the autumn.



any writing is much enjoyed, even if infrequent xx

You sound worn out. Music is definitely a difficult business. I was at it for years. Hopefully your joy is in the playing. Have a great time at the festivals... and keep writing!

Still it’s updated. Festivals are good topic to stumble upon most especially if you really have enjoyed what you just did. At the same time, it’s the time of the year you’re hooked up with different schedules to show what talent you’ve got. Keep it up and hope to hear from you soon.

It's fun being able to participate in festivals. You get to meet a lot of people and interact with them in different ways. Furthermore, talents are being showcased (which is a plus factor most especially you are a participant). Then and there, talents are being enhanced. What a great way to have fun.

How i wish I could have the same kind of fun as you did. It's not usual to have some activity such as that in festivals from which you don't have to think of work. Or, it may be considered as work yet it has that fun factor in it.

I envy you. It's not all the time I get out and have fun like that. Too busy with work and lots of things to do. Although, I must also admit, I like the things I do but in comparison to the things you've been involved with, lucky you!

also popularly known as "Babe" Ruth, "The Bambino", and "The Sultan of Swat", was an American Major League baseball player from 1914–1935. Ruth originally broke into the major leagues with the Boston Red Sox as a starting pitcher, but after he was sold to the New York Yankees in 1919, he converted to a full-time right fielder and subsequently became one of the league's most prolific hitters. Ruth was a mainstay in the Yankees' lineup that won seven pennants and four World Series titles during his tenure with the team. After a short stint with the Boston Braves in 1935, Ruth retired. In 1936, Ruth became one of the first five players elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
