Pledge update and more vinyl available

Friday, August 5th, 2011

I am absolutely blown away by the positive response for, and run away success of the Pledge Triple Album campaign. I had honestly wondered if we would actually make the intended 100% in 60 days. No one, not even Pledge themselves, saw us making 100% in 6 hours!! I definitely didn’t expect to see the […]

Music made for the people by the people

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

I love music being independent. Always have. The D.I.Y approach has appealed to me since I watched the original punks gatecrash the charts and infuriate the press. But the thing was, they couldn’t be stopped because the people were behind their militant stance and the mainstream could only stubbornly hope that they’d just go away. […]

Fucking hell! I’m just coming up to the grand young age of thirty twelve, I’ve been playing drums for most of my life. Have been in bands for most of the time I’ve been playing drums, and have been drinking for most of the time I’ve been in bands playing drums. So why is it […]

Go To Hell

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Nestled unassumingly near the front of Töölö, in the heart of Helsinki, is the best restaurant in the world. Lots of restaurants seem like the best restaurants in the world, and almost are, but there is only one that can be king. And this place is called Hell. Stylish and sparse, and serving up fine […]

What Is It With Denmark?

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

So, it started when we left the beautiful, strange winter wonderland that is Norway, en route for Denmark. Denmark, that nemesis of a place that very nearly sapped our lust for life during the recording of our last album. A place with so many memories it’s a shame they’re mostly horrible. You could say that […]

Here We Go Again

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

We’re off on another merry little trip to the frozen shores of Scandinavia. I have to say, last winter’s trip left me slightly jittery after experiencing minus fourteen on the frozen midnight ferry which had to break it’s way through the frozen seas to reach it’s frozen destination. It was more of an eye closer than an eye opener.

But this time I’ve come prepared. Converse, as good as they are for drumming in, don’t really cut it as an all terrain snowshoe. So this year I’ll mainly be wearing the hide of pre-historic woolly mammoths, along with some very flattering thermal underwear made by that classic top Savile Row designer – Thinsulate. Lets face it, you’re past caring about your appearance once your lips have fallen off. I dare say I won’t be so agile around the drum kit, but god damn it I’ll be warm.

A Brief Update, A Small Summary, And, Finally, A Bit Of News.

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

So, it’s been a while since I wrote something here, eh? Dunno why, I guess I’ve been off busying myself with other pursuits or something. Either way it’s safe to say that I’ve missed you.

First things first, go buy the new Devin Townsend album, Addicted. Absolutely the best stuff he’s released since the awe inspiring City by SYL. You will absolutely not regret this purchase.

Oh, Antiproduct are leaving the sunny confines of LA to return to the rainy little winterland we call the U of K to appear as special guests at The Wildhearts Xmas shows. Given that The Loyalties are opening up this evening should effortlessly rank alongside any Xmas special we have ever put together.

Just Woke Up

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Been sitting in my own head today thinking about the last couple months. It’s been a pretty fucking odd time if I do say so myself. Then again, this time of year always holds something I never saw coming.

Happily Lost In Translation (Japan Day 1)

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

The breaks between visits to Japan always seem longer than in reality. Actually, this kind of warp in time makes sense when faced with the futuristic setting that Tokyo continues to impress upon returning gai-jin (foreigners). Apart from New York City there isn’t a place in the world I miss more than Japan.

Gingerbread People?

Monday, October 5th, 2009

So the UK tour is over and I’m back home doing a bit of shopping with the family. We pop into Thomas the Bakers’ for a spot of light refreshment when my 4 year old daughter says “Daddy, can I have a gingerbread person?” Ah! How cute I think to myself as I correct her […]
