It’s been four years since I last saw Tommy and Linda. I’m very excited to see how GOLDEN ANIMALS has evolved as a band and see them tour over the next couple of months!
I was sad to hear lastnight that Natty Brooker, the artist best known for his unique album artwork on Spacemen 3 and early Spiritualized records, has passed away. I didn’t know him personally, but was very honoured to be involved with the exhibition and one off Spacemen reunion, former band mate Will Carruthers put together in 2010. As a relative youngster having the chance to see (and film) one of my top three favourite bands come together surrounded by the hallucinatory art of Natty, for one night, was a lucid dream come true. So many great memories of that night, mainly sat on the DJ booth, next to Tim Burgess, 34 weeks pregnant trying to hold a camera without shaking for the hour long set. Thanks to Will and everyone who made that night happen, may Natty’s spirit live on in his art.
Rock n Roll lost a great band last month,
Wishing the boys all the best for their future endeavours!

I’m leaving my heart, we never really got along anyway.
