TV & Radio Update:
We were recording The Friday Night Project all day yesterday - the show will be aired tonight. I think that they appreciated us having come up with so many different instrumental pieces for use during the show – they even asked us to come up with another one on the spur of the moment which would be 25 seconds long so we opted for How I Nearly Lost You.
It was a lot of fun (much more than I had expected it to be) and Jimmy Carr actually seemed like A Very Nice Chap. So nice in fact that he invited Dom and myself to come on his Xfm radio show to “have a chat” this Sunday. If anyone wants to listen I think the show is on air from 10am (and if you live outside London you can listen online at http://www.xfm.co.uk)
On Wednesday we did Popworld and found out that we will be making two appearances over two different shows, firstly (I think) this Sunday and secondly (prob performing the song) the day before the single comes out (Sunday 3rd April).
On Monday me and James and Martin are going into a studio to do an Others’ remix of Gang Of Four’s "At Home He’s A Tourist" – it’s a swap mix so they have agreed to remix "Lackey" for us in return. Interesting new directions hmm…
On March 24th I (and I think Dom too) will be Dj-ing at Brixton Academy for an Xfm/Oxfam event.
Here is the press release:
