Hello

We're all super excited about playing the 100 Club tonight. We're all big Darren fans too - it all seems a bit unreal.

Hope some of you can make it long, we'll be on first. Not sure of the stage time.

Pocketbooks played a fantastic gig at 100 club tonight. The sound was spot on. It was a sweet evening. Didn't stay for DH though..
I slice the surface here beside you/Lungs filled liquid yell I love you/Sound moves further underwater
Deep and dark my submarine bells groan in greens and grey/Mine would chime a thousand times/To make you feel okay..

Not you as well! Mine is actually getting better now & I should be on top form to DJ at The Pocketbooks gig @ Big Pink Cake on May 9th @ The Mothers Ruin, Bristol!
Cheers!

The new album is still giving me butterflies. I can't believe how good it is. Am I right in saying that Andy writes all the lyrics? He's clearly a genius and deserves an award of some kind.

What a great night in prospect! Not sure I can make it down - we're hoping to get a batch of recording done, but if things get ahead of schedule try to be there. I haven't seen Pocketbooks since the London Popfest, when they were pop-fab!

Hello

I've got some bits of Pocketbooks news for everyone.

Firstly we play in London this Saturday at The Wilmington Arms in Farringdon along with The Good Gods! and The Noughts and Crosses Band - PM me and I'll make sure I put you on our 5 pound entry list. Hope some of you can make it.

Myself and Daniel were interviewed for the lovely Elefant-itis blog the other week, if you'd like to read it here it is:
http://elanalevin.com/?p=503

Finally Not Going Out from our album has been included on a podcast at Cokemachineglow. It's an all British podcast, I'd hardly heard of any of the bands but some of it is really nice. http://www.cokemachineglow.com/podcast/ ... odcast-liv

Bye.

Ach,I won't be in London this weekend - this is the first London pocketbooks gig that I'll miss in a long time. Have lot's of fun! I'll definitely be at your next gig.

Ian, the interview is wonderful. I really loved that bit on how high one should wear their guitar strap :-)

Have been feeling a little blue and exhausted lately so I put on the Pocketbooks album to relive my great London popfest memories and you know what it sounds even more glorious with each play.
I have to drag myself out of bed and onto the train to work at the moment, but I had the album on my headphones yesterday and it positively put a skip in my "footsteps" (hahaha).
Am I the only one who finds this album a great companion to those glorious early Style Council records ?
Ooh and the lyrics are wonderful too! It's been a while since I've listened so much to the lyrics on a record.
"I'm not going out" could be "my" song at the moment!

Another Teletext Planet Sound winner - Flight Paths gets 8/10 without any indication that he's listened to it, but he thinks POPBAH are rubbish so that's alright then: http://www.teletext.co.uk/planetsound/a ... +Path.aspx

I think getting a review on Planet Sound has been the most exciting review so far.

Until this happened! 4 out of 5 in the Bouremouth Echo.

Just what does it take to get that fifth star in the Bournemouth Echo? I wonder who many stars Mouthwash got?

I can feel a Summer Season coming on.
