Birdeatsbaby album launch...

Went to the Birdeatsbaby album launch at the Marlborough in Brighton last night - as expected it was ace. Both times I've seen them now they've had really great support acts. Last night it was Bitter Ruin and Charlie Khan and both were really excellent and different and cool - check out their websites for more.

There were loads of people crammed into the Marlborough (a venue that badly needs air conditioning or a window or a hole in the wall as it gets crazy hot when there's like more than two people in there) and a really fantastic atmosphere throughout.
Birdeatsbaby played their set dressed as characters from Alice in Wonderland (awesome) and gave a really excellent performance. On the one hand it's great to see really accomplished musicians playing really well, but the real appeal, as with the support bands too, is seeing a band that's refreshingly different and willing to take a few chances. I picked up the album last night and have been listening this morning - it's really good, go buy it here.

But make sure you buy Ten Dead Men first, obviously.

And go read the first part of my short story here - that one you can get for free.

Here's their latest video:

Okay, I'm done plugging stuff for now. With the Cannes diary and the rest of my short story, plus whatever else comes up, I'm aiming to post a new blog every day this week so be sure to check back regularly. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...
