Birthdays aren't one-day affairs these days.

Last saturday (the one before the one just gone), it was my birthday. So I went to London for a while.Lisa's lunch. Split birthday lunch between me and Donna.
My card from pop.
Jason came down that afternoon, so after several drinks in Clapham, me, him and dad went to see Heaven and Hell (which is basically Black Sabbath without being sued) at Wembley. The arena, not the stadium.
The stage setup was quite honestly the most over the top I've EVER seen. Just look at that drumkit.
The next day, we went out in Camden. James came along.
and so did Tom!
Pop.
Jeff looking like a warewolf. We'd had a lot to drink by this point.
Incidentally, I'm not sure how he spells his name, so if this is wrong, sorry!
Monday night was Cold War Kids at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Patrick Watson and his band supported, who were surprisingly good. They really grew on me.
Patrick Watson!
Lomo!
Cold War Kids totally kicked ass.

It was like a party up there.
Sticks in wine bottles and everything.
Tuesday. Last show. Saosin and Alexisonfire at Brixton Academy. The guitarist on the left bitch tossed his guitar through four loops, one after the other. Now that's talent!

Alexisonfire.
George ran out of mic cable upon climbing the PA.


I think that brings everything neatly up to the present!

Army Of Flying Robots

Friday night was the last (for a very long time) Army Of Flying Robots show. There's not much that can be said really. It was awesome.AOFR are like an institution. If you weren't there, you weren't worth being anywhere.
Luke Moss.
Henry Davies.
Andrew Morgan.

Mosssssh.
Henry got all wrapped up.
Craig Mulcahy.
Surfing, Nottingham style.
Simon Fitzpatrick.
"GIVE US A DRUM SOLO!"
Boulty was loving it so much, he gave a bit of a dance.
Cowbell!
Tom Browne is stalked by the mystery drumstick.

More surfing.
Sweaty.

I don't remember the last time The Old Angel was that full.
Goodbye Robots, we'll miss you dearly!
Bringing the noise to finish things up.

Late halloween

After a VERY heavy night out for halloween, I had to double-time it and go out with the college folk.Fancy dress doesn't always mean dressing up really silly.
Ian.
Hollie with my hat and mask. The mask made both drinking and breathing difficult!
Thomas.
Justin, who was already plenty drunk before he even arrived.
Pete made the best effort I've seen in ages.
