You find me dear reader, pondering over a suitcase, looking forlorning into the night sky. A crumpled sheet of paper lies beside me, upon it a list of necessities.

Passport, visa, hotel reservation, hotel address, ticket…..I am packing. I fucking hate packing. By the time many of you read this I will be high above the clouds on my way to SXSW. A pilgrimage that I have threatened to do for so many years, that it barely feels real.

Anyway, I’m going to try and record a show out there, so there will be lots of opportunity to chat shit about Texas and the like then, so for now you’ll just have to put up with a selection of songs that i thought have been ruddy marvellous these last few weeks.

If you’re so inclined why not Like the Facebook page, I’ll be posting a link to the best band I see every night while I’m out there.
