On Wednesday evening I met up with Sam and Robbie, a couple of ex-housemates from Norwich. James was in town for work and a mate of his was playing in a band at The Metro too. Unfortunately, the band his mate was in was the worst of the night for me. Perfectly bland, safe music. Sorry James.

The other three bands were all very good and I’d recommend them all if I could remember their names. King of Spain were the last band on and I would certainly go see them again. They have an album out on March 31st and I may just buy it.

Another song you should buy is Alex Cornish’s track Untied. It’s out tomorrow on iTunes. I wouldn’t usually recommend iTunes but it’s not available on 7digital. Alex hopes to get into the charts by the end of the week. Best of luck!

Two Caravans by Marina Lewycka. Lewycka vividly writes about the exploitations of eastern european immigrants from the viewpoints of 5 or so main characters. Just as her first book A Short History Of Tractors In Ukrainian was a fun, charming read, Two Caravans out does by with a double portion of wit. The best character in the book has got to be Dog, a border collie, who turns up out of nowhere and saves the day on more than one occassion.
