Some pics from Great North-West. Travelling Pacific Coast Highway.
Even if I have to rebuild it brick by brick myself I hope #BarnetFC take the Underhill Tannoy Room to The Hive next season.
It’s here! The gorgeous deluxe vinyl box set of @tracey_thorn’s Xmas album. Heavy vinyl, CD, cards, giftwrap.
our @tracey_thorn’s golden wonder potatoes don’t half make crispy crunchy roast spuds! (we did wash them first.)
If you missed the session on John Kennedy’s X-Posure radio show on XFM last night by Spanish left-field guitarist, Towards Green (recently signed to my label Buzzin’ Fly) we are now giving away the FREE extended version of this unique mixtape featuring his recent live performances, rehearsal room sessions and field recordings.
If you love it, give something back and buy his new EP out on Buzzin’ Fly this week here http://www.buzzinfly.com/shop

Today I asked my Twitter followers to name a great album of 2011 that they thought they would still be listening in years to come. There was a lot of diversity - a few popular choices - but mostly just lots of lone single votes. Evidence of people being clever? Or just evidence of the depth of music that reaches people these days? I’ve listed the artists below. To save me typing it all out assume we are talking about their 2011 album. In no particular order, here’s the long tail for your Christmas list …
The Joy Formidable
Jon Hopkins & King Creosote
Josh T Pearson
Half Man Half Biscuit
Flowers and Sea Creatures
Dum Dum Girls
KD Lang & Siss Boom Bang
Makossa & Megablast
Iron and Wine
(Pretty sure these were all out in 2011. Might be a couple out of place. And if I missed a couple from all your Tweets, sorry, there were loads …)
Gorgeous blue vinyl. New EP from @tracey_thorn. Cover of The xx. Some signed copies. Pre-order now at http://www.buzzinfly.com/shop (or iTunes)
