ON ROAD


A BIG weekend on road with Hot Chips
Manchester Academy Friday night, then on to the Mint Lounge for rum n records and a wireless mic. Shamone.
A couple of hours to kill on Saturday afternoon before heading to Birmingham so I went on a tour of Old Trafford.
Don’t tell Uncle Moody, he’ll have me up. At least I didn’t tour White Hart Lane.

There’s something about an empty stadium that makes me dewey eyed. It’s an indefinable feeling. Sometimes I feel like that when the stadium is full too.

Onwards to Birmingham, another great show then many laughter with the bio-chemist and friends till the early hours at The Hare And Hounds and some other places we don’t rightly remember. Thanks for your hospitality.

PRE-ORDER THE 12″

YOWZAH!!!
Bears Vinyl is very soon in the shops
pre-order your copy here from Piccadilly Records

and don’t forget PLAN BEAR next Friday

Hats off to Redbull for the Soundclash thing they put on last night. A drop of that drink has never passed the lips of a bear. Even the smell makes me run for the woods but STILL, they’re investing big money in music in London right now so FAIR PLAY to them.

BRUM TIME!!!
