International Colouring Contest

Another week and another appearance at Alex's Tuesday Warner show on Fleet (named after a Shortland Street character). This time we managed to record half of the show but it's only a 64 kbit mono file, so for the one I'm doing on Saturday (yes, I've got a fill-in spot all of my own!) I'll try just recording it on my mp3-player. This will later be the next HIAYH podcasts, but you can listen in here at 9 am local time (which is actually prime time if you're in Europe!). I'll definitely play something from this.

It's Liechtenstein's new ep and I just got it in the mail today. It's truly wonderful so get it from Fraction now! Here's what I played on Wednesday:

Tommy James & the Shondells - Real Girl
Swell Maps - Dresden Style
Snowbirds - Day After Day
The Wendy Darlings - Enormous Pop
Bullozer Crash - Bluebell Wood
The Set Designers - Alright
The Byrds - The Day Walk (Never Seen Before)
#Poundsign# - Rooftops
The Bright Lights - GGP
Two If By Sea - Tomorrow

I went to a gallery opening with Florence today, but didn't realise that Gary Hill was Gary Hill until I discovered one of the video works was Site Recite from 1989! The exhibition is on at St. Paul's gallery until April 24th.

Happy to see that set designers song up there! It was the first 7" I ever bought, at we & you, and the song I was after was of course Alright. I'd heard it on p3pop, which I used to tape back then! Blablabla cool stuff!
