Peter Gabriel + Monkeys + Man Man

Peter Gabriel is playing LIVE at HYDE PARK on Saturady 23rd June!!!!

He's one of the few big artists I've not seen whom I'd absolutely love to see live (the others being David Bowie and Pink Floyd).

On the downside is the tickets are around £50 each and he's co-headlining with Crowded House (whom I'm really not keen on).


Another downside is that I can't afford to buy tickets this month so I'm just going to have to pray that their are still some tickets left come April or I suddenly come into some money in the next few days so I can justify to myself spending £100 on two tickets (I'd pick one up for Rosie too as she's a fan of both Peter Gabriel AND Crowded House - hey the girls going out with me so there's no accoutning for taste! :p).

The Brits amongst my readers will remember Johnny Vegas and Monkey! from the old ITV Satellite commericals from about 6 years ago. Well the observant amongst you may have notice that the duo have returned for the PJ Tips adverts (yay for Monkey!). Anyway, Monkey! was a massive hit in the flat of yesterday when I used to share with daver2323and Delphine so when I saw a special pack of PJ Tips which including a plush palm sized Monkey! in Tesco's earlier I just had to buy it. Monkey! is sooo cute. I'm thinking of making him a Cubicle 7 logo t-shirt and making him our mascot for conventions.

...are a rather strange band from Philadelphia. Rosie got the CD this morning and decided to put it on the stereo in the office for me to listen to whilst I work. It is indeed playing now (even though I'm not actually working atm - naughty Angus). I must say they are rather wonderful. I really don't know what I'd classify them as though. They are pretty experimental in places but have defintely caught my interest. They sound like a good fun band.
For more info check out their WEBSITE or their MYSPACE pages...

Right, I'll try to get a little more done and then have an early night so I can get up at 7 and fit in another couple of hours of work before heading to the day job. Off to see 300 tomorrow night and then flying up to Edinburgh on Friday early afternoon :)

Dude, Neil Finn helped to provide me with some normality in my early teenage years. 'Middle of the Road' is a fine music choice when you are about 13, listening to quite a variety of highly depressing stuff... Songs like "Weather With You" lift the mood instantly.

Glad you're liking ma CD.

*walks off singing "Spider Cider, Spider Cider"*

Speaking of which, you could've added this video - the song is Track 9 on the CD:

Oh god, I LOVE Peter Gabriel!

Yu know, you could aquire a nomber of Monkeys, and give them shirts for all the Cubicle 7 products.

For example Monkey the Slop, replete with shades, a pistol and a SLA Industries shirt...
