throwing myself back into it all again

Not really got much interest in watching Live8 (being old enough to remember cringing at Live Aid) and demos and marches scare the crap out of me; nice to know that various mates are holding the banners, but for my part I spent the afternoon down the Oxfam shop, as usual -- it flooded in the flash floods! no stock damage, though, just a rather nasty odour and some wash marks on the shelves -- although we did sell more make poverty history books and bands than usual. Oh, and someone's donated the entire ouvre of Octavia Butler and an advance proof copy of Gaimen's Anansi Boys. Anyone interested?

Yesterday and the day before I took my camera to some gigs. Three, I think. Six bands? Something like that. Recommendations for iliketrains (weird projections, big guitar noise, and a strange man on horn), and The Hellset Orchestra (hammond organ, crazed string section, pogo-inducing), also happy to see the the Schla-la-las and The Thumb Quintet again and The Keyboard Choir for the first time. Good names, I don't need to describe them. Pictures are better anyway:

(There are lots more in the gallery here and a few favourites on flickr.)

This evening I found Andy's Blues for Godzilla tape filed in an as-yet unpacked book box, and listened to it while scooby doo played on mute (not sure what the story was about, but it involved a lot of puppies and an evil scooby twin). It's an odd mix tape -- a bit sordid, a bit sad, kind of domestic ... and, of course, it opens with Bedroom Behemoths, the mistersongs track Andy wrote me about gin, plastic dinosaurs and hairdye. It's really lovely.
