Putting on a gig, and getting drunk at said gig, didn't turn out to be quite the gentle start to the week I'd hoped for. Partly because of the number of friends in attendance and partly because of the massive party vibes DJ Mike Hemsley was throwing out with his mix of R&B and hip-hop flava's. My head's certainly cloudier than I'd like it to be right now, but we've got a BIG week coming up this week so there's no time to be sitting around complaining. Here are two things to kick your Monday morning off in style:
First off, it's my great pleasure to announce that the wonderful Shapes have joined our ever-expanding roster. The rowdy three-piece make so much noise you could be mistaken for thinking they're the ghost of Meet Me In St Louis, reduced in size, relocated to the Midlands and listening to pirates whilst they write their brilliantly powerful, twisting rock smashes! They're playing a free show at Rota (Notting Hill Arts Club) in London this Saturday, on stage at 6pm. The bad news, however, is that drummer Gav had his hand badly damaged by a bottle on Saturday night attempting to break up a fight, which means he'll be out of action and replaced by Wiz from Blakfish for the evening. I don't think that will make too much difference to your soon-to-be throbbing eardrums though.
Secondly, I'm delighted to show you this, the new video for 'Dead Or Not He Was Wearing Sunglasses' from Wintermute. The track (it's a pop hit, right?) is taken from their forthcoming album, 'Robot Works', and can be purchased on limited edition 3" CD from our online shop, or downloaded for free from www.bsmrocks.com/friend
