Purchased a pair of Ted Baker shoes. I love blue laces against a brown shoe, just adds a bit of character.
In general I like my feet to have something a bit different about them so the red socks work well.
Oh and the 501s I purchased about a week ago, I’m basically sleeping in them. They need a wash to tighten them up a bit.
AHHHH JUST DROP ALREADY!!! This is real good!
Foals delivering the intimate times in an acoustic filled French library. Yannis’ solo at the end of Late Night is one of my favourite parts of Holy Fire along with the drop in Inhaler.
This… is beautiful.
Station Manager for another year. Get in!
I get to look after the thing I’m most passionate about until my time at Trent is up.
It would be an honour sir 👍
03/28/13 - Levi’s asked me to customize a pair of 501’s. I figured I’d do something different than bleaching or adding studs (~~basic~~), so I sewed in some floral lining. Super easy to do, and I’m really happy with how it came out. Check it out here:
The dressing room in Spankys was like a swimming pool changing room: small, with a wooden bench, towels on hooks and reeked of chlorine. Shame I couldn’t get my Speedos out!
Mooooooving on… it’s my interview with Theme Park!
Second gig in two days: Theme Park at Spanky Van Dykes, Nottingham.
These guys are full of disco, groove and plenty of funk. They received some criticism from the Guardian and NME, but that’s not phased them and their album has been embraced by fans!
Now they’ve finished their first headline tour - a summer of festival goodness awaits, including Reading and Leeds!
Check out my interview with the guys above ^
‘Of The Night’ - can you see how it made me smile? They made the place rock!
‘What Would You Do?’ - one of the tracks from the mixtape.
I’ve never been to a gig on my own before, but due to a mate being stuck in Derby I got myself over to Rock City to see Bastille!
I’m such a massive fan of the two part mixtape ‘Other People’s Heartache’, it’s distant, emotional, full of dark and light, creating this very vivid picture in your mind.
Not many out there that do that!
It set such a high bar that ‘Bad Blood’, left an inkling of disappointment for me because it had lost that extreme creative edge.
I went to this gig expecting a live performance to compliment the album and re-affirm my faith in a great band - it did and far better than i expected!
It wasn’t a gig that left my ears ringing, it wasn’t a gig that left me drenched in sweat it was gig that made me smile and think “Yes these guys deserve to be on that stage!”
They started with ‘Bad Blood’ and bought the whole gig into a crescendo with Pompeii.
The infamous Rock City crowd immediately wooed Dan (the lead singer) and he left saying “this has been the best gig of the tour, thank you so much!”
He showed his appreciation by
singing ‘Flaws’ in the crowd.
‘Of The Night’ and ‘What Would You Do?’, both tracks from the mixtape went down a storm and showed how much that mixtape has a place in people’s hearts!
I should never have doubted Bastille, so here is my personal apology:
Bastille, I am sorry!
It’s Kendrick and Jay-Z on the. same. track. UN.BELIVABLE.
In truth Jay-Z doesn’t offer much to the track and Kendrick goes to town.
… but I’m hyped because it’s one of the best, with one of the greatest!
