I’m trying to get back to get back into the swing of things (my drugs are great!) and have begun writing for my degree (yes I do do one!) My weekend was spent researching Restoration stage rape which was enlightening to say the least.
Orange Unsigned Act came to the Custard Factory on thursday so I popped down and finally met my idol of 13 years, Alex James. I got a bit starstruck but managed to hold down a brief conversation with him about cheese. I also met Myspace radio co presenter Alex Zane again and thankfully he remembered me!
Its unfortunate that I can’t talk much about the finalists but to be honest, no one except a certain Birmingham band stood out to me- that and a singer songwriter who went asked whether he could form a band with his friends he quickly responded “I haven’t got any!” He was charming in an awkward way!
The other day I received a press release about a mobile phone competition to find new talent. The Motorokr competiton featured a couple of recording booths in the Bullring this weekend. Wannabe recording stars could record an except from nine songs. I took a couple of guys from Burnfm.com down to have a go. Not realising that the songs were set, the boys (Dan and Dan who go by the name Mac and Cheese and Pitta Bread…) brought along a guitar and a self penned christmas song! Noticing their efforts, the Motorola staff got the boys to perform their song in the Bullring infront of the wandering crowds.
Hopefully Christmas Number One This Year will be available soon!
