The first time I went to London (at the grant old age of 7) I stood outside Broadcasting House and decided that was where I wanted to work.
OK, so I haven’t quite realised my ambition yet, but I had a most enjoyable time in the 6 Music studios yesterday with the impossibly lovely Tom Robinson and his friendly, charming team (nothing like a bit of flattery). Having said that, I woke in a wide-eyed sweat last night when I realised I’d got the name of my favourite song WRONG during my Inquisition. Agh!
Tom played out ‘Sexy Trouble’ which you can hear on air this Saturday or on the iPlayer thereafter (I’ll post the link) – I imagine bits will probably also turn up on the podcast. Here’s the direct link to the show’s page on the 6 Music website – a lovely picture of me with no make-up on (because I forgot it all in my rush for the train) will probably appear there shortly. This is the first time ‘Sexy Trouble’ has been played out anywhere but in my own front room and it’s actually my favourite Printed Circuit song too. Hope I’m not bigging it up too much – you’ll have to have a listen and see if you agree.
I shall be ducking back into music production this weekend to complete something else for Tom’s show and to write a guest blog. I already write for a Yorkshire arts website called The Culture Vulture and have just published my newest post about my friend Chris’ post-RCA project, Unravel, which might interest you if you live round my way.
After that, preparation starts for the next ‘real’ gig I’m promoting, The Yummy Fur live at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds. I’m also cooking up plans for the next Drag & Drop (my bi-monthly club night) which will feature a tea time takeover of a pharmacy and travel agents on my local high street. Details to follow.
