London, baby

Just back from seeing Monkey Swallows the Universe play one of their last gigs before going "on hiatus", whatever that means, dammit *mutter*. They were fab. Went along with miss_mcq, and a good time was had by all. They closed with Ice Cream Man and Jimmy, which couldn't have pleased me more, and did stonking versions of several numbers, including Martin and Sheffield Shanty. Cool as fuck. Oh, and the support, Champion Kickboxer, were good enough for us to want to buy an EP each.

Note to self, and anyone else who might be in Shepherd's Bush for a gig at Bush Hall: the restaurant just down on the other side of the road, the Nepalese Tandoori (that's actually its name) does good food and is really friendly.

Anyway. It's nearly 1am, so I'm off to bed now, but if anyone fancies maybe meeting for lunch in London tomorrow before I head back, I can hang around; am currently in Pimlico.

ETA: Now off for breakfast probably followed by the Tate Modern :)

Yeah, I'd gathered it was a split, but I'm trying to live in denial here :) I was on tenterhooks last night as the trains were so screwed that there was a chance I wouldn't make it, and I reckoned it was probably my last chance to see them play.

Nat's recent stuff has been interesting, from the little I've heard so far (she's on MySpace under either Nat Johnson or Judy Beat, I think, and has just put out a few tracks but I've not had enough time to give them a proper listen yet...)

Science was the first track of theirs I heard (Last night: "Is Richard Dawkins in the audience? No? Good..."), and I played it over and over again. Then I fell in love with Martin (ahem) and I was lost, really. I would have loved to have heard the "difficult third album". Sigh.
