Great gig tonight at Oporto – it was sort of sonically chaotic but all the stops and pulls and pushes and breaths came in the right place. It moved. Great crowd for a Monday, in fact for any night – thanks if you came down. As Rich said, “makes you wonder why you don’t just play every night”. He didn’t say that at the end of our 2 and a half month/60 date tour 2 years ago. Proof below if proof was needed that I need a new mobile phone – this is supposed to be Oporto…

Found this photo which I liked from our last trip to Edinburgh – thought I’d stick it up. Why not hey? Add to the detritus flying around the world wide web…

So onward to the Crypt gig on Saturday. Saw the tickets for the first
time today – very lovely. I hope we do the event justice I really do.
If you’re coming down then see you on Saturday…
