FesT..i..vAl




The pound is my favorite coin in the world. I like that its the perfect size/weight and that it looks like Pirate Booty. I like our new Sprinter Van. It doesn't have a leaky roof and my knees have room to hold normal conversations with the other knees around them without feeling self conscious about being a 'close talker'. I like cider. Its like that fake sparkling apple wine you loved as a kid every Thanksgiving, only its available everyday and it has alcohol. I like Mark and Spencers. Mark supplies me with hummus and Spencer keeps me happy because we are broke and he is a cheap date. I like that its the World Cup. I say soccer you say football....we all say cheers and start chanting some old english pub song that I've never heard before but somehow already know all the words to. I like watching Borroca dissolve into a pint of water. I like saying festival. There's so many over here they have their own separate season right between Spring and Summer. Its called FesT..i...vAL season.

p.s. I finished the image at the top a year ago and never really knew where/when to use it until now. I think it applies well for the coming months.

Hey guys, I do not know if you are going to read this but... I really like you. When I saw you in Madrid (February 2010), you just looked like friends making music together and you even were bemused at my friend who told you that "you were superstars".

Now I am sort of sad you became famous for I am too scared you would loose your natural friendliness. (and I hate it when I really like a band and everybody knows it too. The band becomes less special then and it sucks)

I'm happy for you though. But please, just try to stay the group of friends making the best music I've ever heard, not a band of superstars :)

Hello folks - I saw you play at Glastonbury on the Park Stage, it was a major highlight, made my day. Since then I have been listening to your CD a lot, it's just great, I love it - thanks so much. Look forward to the next time in England - happy travels, David W

I'm quite upset my work schedule didn't allow me to see you guys play this summer in the UK at the copious amount of festivals you played at!
stupid no weekends off.
