This is the face that Dajon pulls when he's travelling a 140mph on two freakin' wheels, he is the Speed Demon.

Olly Blah Blah Blah - The Man On The Street Says Yes!


So I was walking down 5th Av New York, minding my own business, well writing a text message and I hear this conversation from behind me...Two fellas are talking about new music they've been listening to. My ears are picking up parts of the coversation...."nah, I don't like the vocalist...it's ok...not really into them ....etc until I hear one of them say, "oh I got the new Gomez record". His mate asks what it's like...."it's gooood" he replies with enthusiam. They walk along side me and I shoot a bewildering glance at them...they look at me like, what chu looking at!

There you have it, the average man on the street likes it - super, smashing great!

See y'all at a show real soon,

TomBlog - Tuesday

Tuesday, that most pointless of all days. The beige day. Neither here nor there. Apologies if you have some emotional attachment to the aforementioned day, but, as days go, it really isn't much of one.

Here we are, on the verge of our album coming out and I can feel the calm before the inevitable. I'm all aflutter with trepidation and mixed metaphors. It's always a funny one, this putting out an album palaver. It doesn't happen enough for you ever to remember what it felt like the last time, but you're soon reminded. The sleepless nights, the butterflies, the flurry of colourful expectations, good and bad. You feel like you should be able to do something, but, besides the interviews and occasional appearances, there's not much except for hit and hope. Watch your baby whistle through the air into an unforgiving outfield.

A call to arms might be in order. I suppose in a way that's what an album is. A moment where, as a band, we're forced to stop, regroup, focus and attack!!!! I'm now imagining us in loin cloths, covered in woad, running down a scottish glen, carrying long spears....no that's no good.... carrying guitars with bayonets attached. A whole army of gomites, the mezopotamians charging into battle.....but then, perhaps, let's wait til wednesday.

don't just gomez...stay mez

Olly Bloggody Blog - Are You Ready?

Well Bonjour to you lovely people!

So it's less than 2 weeks until the spanking new album is released, BRING IT ON!! YEAAAAH! I'm like, so totally pysched, totally...err totally. The last preperations are all in hand...sort of. All we have do now is learn how to play the songs...yikes...why didn't somebody remind us about that part! Cheesass!

I managed to get my paws on a copy of the album yestersay and ooh-la-la, it looks magnifique! We've included lyrics for the first time and a photograph so you can appreciate our haircuts.....it can make or break a band nowdays, I tell ya.

We're just designing some new merchandise for you aswell. Our range will be including hand painted plates of the individual members, a gold medallion chain with Blackie's little face carved into it and a car bumper sticker saying "Don't Mez with Gomez!". All products are made to the highest calibre and quality is assured.

Right I'm off to soak up the New York sunshine.

See y'all soon,

TomBlog - in a reflective mood

Let us all just take a moment to look at the clouds. Or just wonder why for christ sake? This might cheer you up after considering that.

Blackie Blog- Hello again all!

Hello everybody,
Hope you're all doing well out there & the weather's a little more pleasing than here, wherever you might be.
Well as Tom said it's all busy here as we're drawing near to the release date, but as you know the big operation (Oh!) of organising all that needs to occur over the next few months is well and truly underway.
We noticed that there may have been some upset caused by cancellations, unfortunately this is unavoidable sometimes. In the case of the Wakarusa Festival it was mostly due to the fact that it took us a while to find a home for the record in the UK, by the time we had secured a record label, we needed to tour it before the World Cup & Festival season began. Our only other option was waiting to release the record & tour in September, which was a poor option. It's an unfortunate result of the fortunate position of having you support us all around the world, that we must sometimes juggle the needs & obligations of those territories. As always it's a difficult decision to cancel something we have already committed to, knowing that some people may be dissappointed as a result. You're continued support is of course very important & greatly appreciated by us all here at Gomez base camp & we can only say sorry for any upset caused in these cases and for any delay in explaining the reasons why.

TomBlog - whatever

Ahhhh.... Much to do. So little time. Can't believe the album's coming out as soon as three weeks from now. Unbelievable.

eBlob in Melbourne

oh australia, so what's it to be then? will it be a carrotorangegingerpineapplewheatgrassappleclayelixir or a VB? such choices must be made. melbourne is treating me just fine, me and jimmy keeping out of trouble, except for some whinging prick in the hotel room next door. two men, two beers, some smokes listening to nick drake was too much for our man. he's in trouble tonight. big benny joined me last night from sven's couch in brighton for a most unlikely duet, interesting timelag / telephone / speakerphone attempt at r&b. pondering tonight's setlist, 1 minute left on hotel internets. love and hugs, sake boy.

Blackie Blogg- Melbourne

I know I won't be there, but if any of the shows are being recorded, I'd quite like to hear a solo "acoustiche simulator" version of Meet Me In The City. I reckon there'll be a fair few of them crazy Aussie's howlin' along!
