Blackie Blog-Austin Texas

Hello all,
Hope this mail finds you all good & well & in fine form.
Just letting you know how it's going over here.I arrived late on Tuesday night had a few phone calls from Ben,Ol & Dajon which made absolutely no sense whatsoever,on arriving at the bar I realised why,completely & utterly smashed & still not making much sense,Chip,a good friend of ours,had taken them out on the town & some guys were plying them with Guiness Baileys Bombs.
We were up for a radio session this morning at 10am,some of the guys were looking rather worse for wear once again.Turns out Ben(who says hello to you all from the phone,just been with Tom doing an MTV interview),Ian,Ol & Dajon had been out late watching Mogwai,back at the hotel Ol rugby tackled Dajon to bring him to the floor followed by the rest of them falling ontop as they tried to get out of the lift.They awoke about half an hour later in the corridor when Dajon,who'd managed to wake up a little earlier,flung a bucket of ice&water all over them.Bloodshot eyes & hysterical laughter arrived at the radio show where we had a good turn out,from some of you fine people as well I'm sure.
Just off to sound check now but I'm sure there's more to come from this festival yet!

I would give anything to be back in Austin soaking up the SXSW madness. Especially with the Gomez lads in town.

Blackie --

joining late to the conversation, but I believe that drink is an Irish Car Bomb. I have GOT to try one this weekend.
