Olly - Wha' Happened?

I-YI-YI!!!

My good God things got real ugly in Texas! I've just got back to Angleterre and I'm actually feeling remotely human, which is bewildering after the shenanigans. It felt like we were there for two minutes...Three gigs, one radio session, more par-tays than you can shake a stick at, all shaken and not stirred into the most lethal, mind bending cocktail....I managed to catch Mogwai, Jason Collett, Hot Chip and a great comedy duo with couzy's called Flight of the Conchords. The best band by a country mile was Tunng. It's rare to see bands which make you feel like giving the whole thing up, ie. feel like you need to go back to the drawing board! Hot diggidy they were like...how do you say...like, totally awwwwesome.

So all in all, twas a fan-dabby-dozy SXSW....Gomez they came, they played, they conquered....or perhaps, they came and..erm got drunk.

Take care y'all,

Olly,

Thanks for the fabulous shows...
You helped prove that sometimes sleep truly is an overrated thing!

Now, if you will excuse me, I am going back to bed!
