The road ain't a cruel mistress…
I’m flinging forth a quick update to let YOU know what WE have been up to. We’ve just played show number 8 out of 37 or something shows and WE FEEL AWESOME. Well, that’s a lie. We’re completely fucked and tired but dude! The Hot Club machine is in motion and we couldn’t be happier. I’m writing this from our friend’s house in BRISTOL. We played the THEKLA last night and it was really quite lovely. Before that we played the legendary 100 CLUB on OXFORD STREET in LONDON, which was awesome. We were trying to figure out what date the METALLICA photograph was taken and we reckon it must have been like ’87 or something, seeing as poor old CLIFF ain’t there working the thumpstaff. Me and Alasdair got drunk in Madame JoJos. Matthew got drunk watching Battlestar Galactica on his own. WE SAID GOODBYE TO TAKA (our favourite Japanese SUPER FAN). Other hightlights since I last told you what the fuck was up include: LEAVING COVENTRY (despite meeting some awesome folk there), SWEEEEET BIRMINGHAM SELL OUT SHOW, a super-nice Cardiff show full of super-nice kids, and the fact our TOUR GAMES have gotten out of hand:
My favourite so far is singing people’s license plates to the tune of ‘If You Don’t Know Me By Now’ by SIMPLY RED. There’s also the classic BAND NAME GAME. I’ll post up a proper rule sheet at some point, but you’ll get the jist from this jam:
THE THE FALL OUT BOY KILL BOY GEORGE MICHEAL JACKSON FIVE KNUCKLE DUST BROTHERS WITH DIFFERENT MOTHERS OF INVENTION.
Ok. We’re headed to PETERSFIELD tonight, and we’re STOKED about it. Then we go to SWINDON, BRIGHTON and CAMBRIDGE and then we go home for a night off before getting into the NORTHERN LEG of this tour.
Come out and play! ALSO! MY LITTLE HAUNTING IS OUT RIGHT NOW! BUY IT AND SEND US TO THE TOP OF THE CHARTS etc. You can buy a fit as fuck 7″ from our site www. hotclubdeparis. com, or from www. banquetrecords. com. There’s all that usual download shit too.
Here’s the video again:
Love Paul. x
