Pardee! / Schwab / Who wants Donuts?



Whay-hay! I've now officially got time off work for a possible three week holiday in Germany next year. Oh yes. Now I've just got to get those tickets sorted. Fingers crossed....

* Thanks to the folks at The Space Between and Corbet Place for the swell pardee on Monday night. The mag looks great, brandy was drunk, and records were spun. Tune of the night? Close run thing between The Long Blondes 'Giddy Stratospheres' and the Tom Middleton Cosmos vox remix of Schwab's DJs In A Row (yes, apparently it's featured on the 'It's All Gone Pete Tong' soundtrack but don't let that put you off. Jon Spencer style vocals throughout, while Mr Middleton brings the breakbeats in. A winner every time). Special shout outs to Julieta and Daughters of Kaos too. Now, pass the brandy...

* Next week - Major Leaguer Gigs of 2005. Now where are those ticket stubs again? (I saw The Wurzels too. It was very, very scary)

* Rumour of the week? Everyone's favourite Canadian indie band of the year jumping ship to a major in 2006. I didn't start the fire.....(puntastic)

* New J to the Dilla out in February! Jay Dee's first solo album for Stones Throw, Donuts, will hit stores on Feb 6. Let's hope he gets well soon so he can play some live shows in a better state than this ....
