ha, floppy own-brand tortilla chips, peanuts and Lilt and vodka (just a very small medical dash for my damaged tropical child) for breakfast. Happy New Year. Can’t sleep so let my betters rest. A guitar string just pinged on the wall so I must be Accompanied.
I don’t know if you use Discogs but I [...]

Bless Dave he’s got round to sorting out the oft-threatened selectation duties for a new Um release, cos he reckons he can do the honours better than me or anyone else. Last week he sent me a 22 minute mix saying it was more or less definitive but last I heard (yesterday) he was on [...]

I have a nasty birthday next week, so I’m in party activist mode this week trying to make sure the damn thing has food and music and guests and stuff. As I’m super stinko-poor I haven’t bought hardly any records in about a year and a half apart from a couple of charity-shop things that [...]

If you want to see me on the 25th I’m afraid it’s going to cost you £32. Also, apologies to anyone who plays guitar.

I AM NOT THE REAL KID SHIRT

Welcome to UmWorld.
This CD makes me think of sheds for some reason. Tool-boxes rather than Roland Grooveboxes. Rusting scythes, the smell of WD-40, those little scraper things that you use to de-ice windscreens in winter. (Computer) Music for Shepherds.

OK, the voodoo just ate the thoughtful post I did about this so I’m gonna keep my MO lean here. These two lists only overlap to a ceratin degree, I’m not sure how much. If you added both together (subtracting duplications) and stuck on another couple of hundred for omissions you’d be about in the [...]

Ages ago I made a list of Um songs. It wasn’t complete but it was probably 80% of the way there…
1.(A Wise Old Queen Once Said To Me) People Are Shits, Darling
2.(An Adolescence Spent Wasted On) Hot Knives & Prog Rock
3.(I Did Nothing But) I Listened (Hideously Distorted Mix)
4.(In Which) I Have A Horrible Dream

Just found this in an old folder. Never even met this chap but I was extremely grateful when he wrote this stuff.
Review: Um, “The Old Album”, “The New Album”, “Giraffe”.
Feeling a bit mad? Why not push your luck and optimise the state with some “UM” therapy? Treat your self to the black hilarity of this [...]
