This Friday I'm off to see Idlewild at Somerset House, which is nice. The guy I was going with dropped out because his parents booked a holiday/he doesn't like me anymore. But seeing as he'd already paid for his ticket, I gave it to another mate, who probably stills like me. At least, he does now. He's the music editor on our student newspaper, so he called up this PR guy that normally sorts him out for interviews (albeit with awful smaller bands like the Subways and Do Me Bad Things) and he told him he could get an interview with Idlewild.

So, excellent, we're interviewing Idlewild. Which I'm quite happy about, really. Plus it means I get backstage passes. Not really sure what I'm going to do with them, mind. Maybe sell them to a gullible kid.

Tell him that you are The The Clucking Clucking Trout Trout.

That will sort him out.

I've always pronounced it Womble, I'll have to get out of that habit. It's Woooooooomble, right. Womb-bell?

I met them about 6-7 years ago when they were playing a gig in Bedford. This was before they were big, I'm soooooooooo 'indie'.

Well I'm not actually, and I didn't really have a clue who they were. But I'd seen them play and they were at the bar, so I had a good old chinwag. Nice bunch of dudes, me thought.

Just another example of how listening to me almost always pays off.

Have fun Strykey.
After your recommendation of Idlewild to moi about two months ago, I listen to them loads now, one of me favourite bands :)

It'll be in an interview sometime in the future.

"Roddy, what's the weirdest fan you've ever met?"
"Actually, there was this guy once - mumbling about some sort of Dragon? Then he threw a remote at me and my bouncers broke his face."

Say "I know someone who was at the Cambridge gig back in April - did you see them?"

And take in a TV Remote, and ask which is their favourite remote part.

They'll probably stop talking to you after that.
