ANIMAL COLLECTIVE GIG (London, 26th August)

Delifinger (who has started his blog again) gives his version of the post-gig memories..

"While moaning that the tube stations, and all fast food emporiums were closed, James decided to take a nap on the wall of the river thames at 6am. We ended up walking 5 miles from cable street to victoria station after seeing the animal collective, only making our coach by hailing a cab for the last 3/4 of a mile. After a quick snooze on the coach, I awoke to find a pair of leather winkle pickers in my bag. We think that we took them from outside a house that James knocked on at 5 in the morning to ask if there was a party (based on the fact that there were balloons outside). The man that answered very calmly and politely informed James that there wasnt a party. Anyway here is a video of that ever so comfortable nap taking, filmed just before I was sick in the river."

I've plans for those winkle pickers. here's a sneaky video Delifinger filmed of the fool..

oh yeah, we had a good laugh in the pub before arriving at the venue. here's Delifinger again..

"On our trip to the big city at the weekend we went for a drink in a cockney boozer called the George. Some guy came over and put a carpenters record on and asked me keep an eye on it. Anyway.....1 thing let to another and I ended up playing a 2 hour long set using the piles of dusty scratched charity shop vinyl they had kept behind the decks. In between pints of magners I 'pleasured' the pubgoers with such camp classics as tainted love, get into the groove, rocket man and even lets go fly a kite from the mary poppins soundtrack. After realising that the guy who had asked me to mind the decks has fled into the night about an hour earlier, and feeling slightly taken advantage of, we headed for the door after blasting out a song from the sound of music soundtrack as our goodbye."
