They only want you when you're seventeen/ When you're twenty one, you're no fun/ They take a polaroid and let you go...

COURTEENERS, Young And Lost Club at the LA2 then a great Sunday afternoon in the garden of england.

We thought we saw Jack for a while/ And we did, and he's in a terrible state/His brand new trainers gone and his teeth/He looked high as heaven to me

Very happy night with an old friend. PETE GREENWOOD played the Black Gardina and Daniella came along. Good Peruvian vibes from Carlos.

Imprisoned on this dying shell/ Escape is inevitable/ Light burns bright/ Beneath these eyes.....

Jenny was not very into her water melon ice cream. INTEGRITY played the OBL tonight.

And the sign said beer, bait and ammo/ Yeah and they got everything inbetween...

Week off the day job to get organised. Visited the new NME/UNCUT HQ. Bizarre. It's like Orlando airport circa 1986. Had a Proustian chat with Mr John Mulvey about MISSION OF BURMA then headed to the Perou farm to photograph DEREK MEINS. A million thanks to the Zoo for the location. After we wrapped the lord of the manor broke out his beautiful Beretta over and under and we blew the hell out of a load of (clay) pigeons. I love messing around with guns. It is so relaxing and the perfect end to a days work.

I saw you there with a rose in your teeth/ One more thin gypsy thief...

JW rode wide and deep in the monster truck Saturday (thanks for not running me over bro) then awoke to arctic scenes Sunday. Season 6 of The Shield is the most powerful and intense television ever made. COURTEENERS rocked HMV under the office after work then BEGGARS blew The Soho Arts Club away. They are totally my new favourite band. Back at the bar Liam and the band celebrated amazing album midweeks in the Charlton Heston suite with champagne and very destructive cocktails...As The Onion said today "Charlton Heston's gun finally taken from his cold, dead fingers" I am actually mourning the pasing of a great patriot.

I got an electric guitar/ I play my stupid songs...

1965land to man in a boxland to viceland to gullickland to curryland. Grace's leg has recovered!
