Re: Dave Rowntree on XFM radio (sundays at 10 PM GMT)

Dave plays decent enough tunes but it's all pretty mainstream rock. Shame he doesn't venture into more interesting things and give his listeners a chance to hear something that is maybe new to them.

Re: B-Roads

Re: Blur interview in The Guardian (Kanye West etc.)

Graham himself has said he's a fan of hiphop and has so for years. He was prob just in a bad mood during the interview and was saying some half-assed stuff as a result.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I might have my pair of Hollywood Bowl tickets up for sale. I got them as part of the Amex presale but I might not be able to attend the show now. I'll keep you posted.
