Martian Cuckoos

lamacq300Today I woke up, bathed in the purest sunshine, to the strange sound of alien birdcreatures doing things in the chimney. Then Dr Hague made us salmon and eggs, and I reclaimed my humanity. Right now we are sorting Gruff Rhy's' vocals on I Am Not Dead (Yeah!), wich I feared lost, as they were on my bouncy rubber tough drive, the neck of which had snapped, but Hague is old school, and thus handy with piers and wires. I am impressed.

Shit is sounding awesome down here. We're working through what we've done, and it is all HITS.

No believe me? Go listen to Dr Steve Lamcq's latest BBC Radio 1 show, "It's Blitzkrieg Pop #2 - 30 records in 60 minutes: your definitive guide to the next month in indie."

According to Dr Lamcq, I have been poised to "break through" fr three years or so, but have been "tying myself up in knots..." but no longer, say he, on the strength of In The Morning. well! You aint seen nothing yet! Word to Bachman Turner Overdrive.
