Tennant/Led Zep

9.03 So David Tennant has quit as Doctor Who then, he was amazing and its a shame he's going - I think David Morrissey would be good as Doctor number 11 but we'll see. Doctor Who is bloody great, loved it since i was a kid. So this is the guy rumoured to be the new singer in Zep? What next the guy from Nickelback! Not impressed useless grunge/AOR.

Led zepped

8.42 So Led Zeppelin without Plant then? Robert Plant is my least favourite thing about Zeppelin - John Paul Jones/Page/Bonham is where its at for me but is the chemistry there without him? Even the weakest member of a band changes the overall dynamic (RINGO was vital to the beatles and I love his drumming anyway) I'm sure no one wants to see any thing like this - Coverdale/Page(RUBBISH!): If they are going to tour without him I reckon Chris Cornell(Soundgarden) would be a good choice but is it Zeppelin? From what i saw the stuff from the Zep o2 gig was incredible and i would love to see them but will it work?

Sesame Street

20.53 A couple of great videos. Nigel Kennedy - I'm not keen on the cockney geeserizms but the playing and the chord progression on this is bloody brilliant. Very John Luc Ponty era Mahavishnu Suprising indeed( i hate it when it talks thou).! The genius of Seasame Street 123456789101112 - awesome. I'm still looking to do some gigs in Jan - I've had some good offers and it will tie in nicley with the CD coming out. Matt Stevens

21.31 I made an imix - as an apple fan i suppose it was inevitable:
Songs that have made want to do music.... Spent the day at Pinna with Kev working on our new rock project (sounds a bit Melvins at the free jazz disco at the moment). Did some guitar and Kaossilator synth therimin overdubs - we didn't have enough time do a new podcast, this is our last one: or

The stuff sounded GREAT - really looking forward to putting some real drums on. Desk at Pinna 221020082382 Kev Vocalist/Guitarist/Engineer and the only person able to play a rhythm part and not turn it into 7/8.(I must stop listening to Prog) 221020082375 Bigsby Glitter Guitar 221020082355 Tasteful sofa at the Fortress 221020082353 Pig on a Shoreditch wall 221020082348 I'm working on some Promo CD's to send out to get some gigs....

Oakley Arms

22.23 Finally cracked and brought some new trainers - converse again. Oxford Street was crazy busy: 211020082342 Bidding on a leather Biker Jacket on Ebay at the moment and working on some new songs. May I recommend Volcano by Baby Woodrose - the best Monster Magnet tune they never wrote. The Oakley Arms in Rushden is up for sale - the pub where I've played more than anywhere else - I virtually lived there as a teenager and saw some amazing bands. It was a great live venue metal, punk. psyche and DJ stuff often on the same night. I'll be gutted if they turn it into a Restaurant or flats. Surely live music is on the up now? Looks like the album will be out in January now and i'll do some gigs around then - releasing it myself on my own label is a bigger job than i thought, just hope people want it when its done. Hopefully i'll have more time to respond to messages now. Messing around with - loads of good people on there now. Really want to build a community around there and Take it easy Benny 191020082305 Tottenham Sky 191020082291 Matt Stevens
