I Play the Drums…

10 Apr

LittNothing much to say tonight, except to recommend this book I’m reading. Toby Litt’s I Play the Drums in a Band Called Okay.

Started reading it last night and have found it really hard to put down – to, you know, go to work, do stuff etc.

If you’re into music at all, a poor obsessive muso like me even, I can definitely recommend it.

That’s all really to be honest. I’m gearing up for a blog post of some sort of merit, but just don’t quite have it in me today…

Jarvis Cocker on Richard Brautigan

8 Apr

Thanks to Cathy White for pointing me towards this. Only available on the iPlayer until 11th April, but great broadcast by Jarvis Cocker on the work of Brautigan: Messy, Isn’t It? – The Life and Works of Richard Brautigan. It still amazes me how much he sounds like Stephen Hawking (Brautigan that is, not Jarvis Cocker).
