Jenn and I went to see them interviewed for a Channel 4 programme at the inhumane hour of 9:30 this morning (meaning we had to leave at 7:30 to get from East London to West London, and then we saw the cast of Big Brother 4, but had no idea who they were). It was a short interview and the interviewers were horrible uninformed, but we saw a clip of the video for "Silence Easy" and all.

Now I'm just excited about the special gig at ULU on August 11th and the Nottingham gig the day after my birthday!!

Sharky, I have a boot from the March 2nd, 2002 show in Philly and one from the Pinkpop Festival that I meant to send to you, then realized that I don't have your address anymore from the first Interference CD exchange, and have been too lazy to PM you. If you send me your address, when my computer is fixed, I'll copy the cds for you.

I quite like their debut and curious about their new thing. They can be somewhat monotonous in terms of mood though; I often have the same problem with Travis and Coldplay.

So Megan and I went to a Starsailor gig last night in a small venue - much smaller than where they'll play in London when they officially tour (it was a warm up for the rolling stones gigs i think; you had to win tickets to go to it, couldn't buy them). It was AMAZING. Seriously, SO good. Go see them if you get the chance. They haven't announced a US tour yet, but they will, so... They have the guitar player from the charlatans on loan for a bit, playing with them...it really adds to the sound. AND - James Walsh did a bit of "all i want is you" last night... I was literally swooning...anyway, ok, words are failing me at how amazing it was, so I'll stop. But...yeah.

I want to see Starsailor again. NOW. Hopefully the TV show taping thing on Friday will be fun....and we won't look like stalkers for being EVERYWHERE they are.

For anyone who's interested, last night's setlist was:

‘Music Was Saved’
‘Alcoholic’
‘Poor Misguided Fool’
‘Fidelity’
‘Lullaby’
‘Telling Them’
‘Four To The Floor’
‘Born Again’
‘Tie Up My Hands’
‘Silence Is Easy’
‘Some Of Us’
‘Good Souls’

The new stuff is stunning live....I think "Silence Is Easy" was probably my favourite song, but the partial "All I Want Is You" cover was definitely the highlight of the night. It was EASILY the best gig I've been to all year (topping even Idlewild at the Mercury Lounge and Jesse Malin at the Union Chapel). I give it a 442/10.
