At the end of the 1994 Labour Conference, John Prescott said his party had “served a notice to quit on the most desperate, despicable, seedy, grubby, hopeless, lying, hideously incompetent bunch of third-rate, double-dealing disasters this great nation has ever seen.”
Rarely am I one to say John Prescott’s contribution to debate are either articulate or indeed accurate, but I have to say I can’t think of a better way to describe Gordon Brown’s Government.
I am genuinely excited about Conservative Conference next week - which is saying something given that I sacrificed going to Latitude and Rock Ness to go. But more on that later.
so, yes, I took a break from blogging, photography, work, and well pretty much everything and actually spent some time chilling out. i havent really done that enough over the past few years. i had time to think about where i’m going, what I want to do and
i also had a chance to listen to lots of music, play the guitar and even discovered the fun to be had with an 8 key kiddies glochenspeil / piano thing.
so, normal service has been resumed, i had my first gig of the new touring season last night (florence and the machine) and have put a quick photo up on flickr here.
in the mean time, thom yorke and his brother andy have covered Mark Mulcahy’s “All for the Best” for the upcoming record Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy. The record was put together after Mark’s wife passed away in September last year. it’s a really great cover, a wonderful bit of lo-fi electronica and the video is pretty cool too.
