The Mystery Jets, Live At The Royal, 10/5/08

Whooo! On Saturday night I was lucky enough to see The Mystery Jets live at The Royal!


Supporting were Esser who managed to surmount a lack of soundchecking and played a fun, bouncy set. They remind me of A Certain Ratio channelled through LCD Soundsystem.

And then the Jets came on and hummed through a lot of their new album, ’21,’ plus some old faves like ‘Dennis’ and ‘Zootime.’ The audience lapped it up, both the old and the new songs. And what’s not to like? This band write great pop tunes.

They’re also amazing live. If you get the chance, go and see them. You won’t regret it!

Derby Earthquake

About five to ten minutes ago there was a FUCKING EARTHQUAKE!

In Derby!

I felt like I was on a trestle table, here on my ground floor. Concrete.

I’m really feeling weird now.

More as I find out what happened…


Earth tremor felt across England

People from across large parts of England have reported an earth tremor.
The BBC received calls from people in Yorkshire, the Midlands, Manchester, the Thames Valley, Norfolk, Preston, Newcastle and London about a “quake”.

The tremor was felt at about 0100 GMT and lasted for nearly 10 seconds but it is unclear if it has caused any damage.

The British Geological Survey said it believed the quake was of the magnitude of 5.1 and said the epicentre was close to Grimsby in north-east Lincolnshire.

A spokesman said it was the biggest earthquake to hit England since 1990 and could be of a level to cause minor damage to buildings.

5.1 on the Richter scale… Bloody hell!
