I begin

This morning, making coffee and listening to an obscure piano album by musician Dave Palmer (that I randomly found on the internet and decided to buy), Ding and I were discussing the latest issue of Wire.

He’s dressed for his cycle ride in those very tight, nappy arsed, strapped leggings that makes you think Marcel Marceau after a big scare.

He is getting ready for this summer’s L’Etape Du Tour. The lazy fat bastard.

Our youngest child is up the wall, in what seems to be a perpetual state of Hand Stand. I have renamed her Sheila.

Go on…he says, describe one of the featured artists. Do me the blurb.

These are the kinds of games we like to play…that and our favourite ‘Face Making’.

Face making is serious business…smiley mouth – total dead eye, or, perplexed-you-got-me-there, but look!… and can take many long minutes to hone and rearrange until we are satisfied with the result.

Anyhow, I don’t know that I am up to the task this morning… but give it a go as our marriage is very important to us.

Grievous Climb.  

Daefus Clag hails from Splott, the son of a Catalonian knife grinder.

A graduate of the Sorbonne, he studied alternative knee bending, and drinking beverages at extreme temperature. 

This latest work, influenced by light dimmers and the perpendicular, was recorded in service lifts, between the fifth and sixteenth floors only.

I don’t think they will be open to me at Wire.

 They will not be calling me Poly-Stylistic.

They should. It’s a good call.

    I lived in Splott many moons ago – bloody manky it is. The locals call it ‘Splow’ as they’re so ashamed of the name – and to be a bit posh, like.

    how utterly cool – wow…caught you at the beginning of your new blog, what a stroke of luck. my 10 year old daughter just out of the blue asked me to play ‘bad connection’ which she has been listening to since the womb along with the rest of your entire canon of incredible music – and so i went to myspace to show her more about you – several clicks of the old mouse later and i’ve got myself a blog account and i’m reading something you just wrote a week ago…god bless the zeros and ones, i say…

    anyway, i’m thrilled to see you on W14, along with several others – looks like a great label, and i hope they work with you well into the future. i need a steady diet of alf, you see, so i need a competent label to feed me.. 🙂 williams will do well, i’m quite sure!

    i’d like to post a small essay i wrote a few years ago, really very small, about how i discovered you back in high school (actually a seminary!) and how it changed my entire musical life – but i won’t unless you say it’s okay, because i hate to be ‘that annoying yank with the big post’ – hmmm..which i may already be??? haha

    oh well – CHEERS TO YOU ALISON, to W14 and to all the great fans of such prestigious music. i shall check in here often!
