end of a decade

Kill Bill? I'd rather be listening to Billy Bragg...

London night last night. I brought this babe home with me (well, actually I had to give her to mzdt for safe keeping, but she got home in the end):

I was in London for Rough Trade's 25th birthday party. It was super-friendly and really nice; people were chatty and casual, the venue was (to my provincial eyes) unbelievably clean, airy, fresh and bright, and, all-in-all, it wasn't really a club atmosphere at all. It was more like someone at Rough Trade had totted up the figures and said, "Guys, there's no way we can afford the party we deserve," and someone else had said, "Wait, what if we do it at a club, and get whatever bands we have handy to play? We can put it on a website and fund the entire shindig off selling advance tickets to schmucks!" Collapse )

P.S. There's a new community for people in Oxford; it's called dreamingspires, of course!
