I envy those with a rock 'n' roll constitution. Made of stuff so solid they can cope with a touring schedule this relentless while partying and drug taking into the wee hours with apparently little side effect. I don't know how they do it. With over an hour and a...

A slight shock to the system. From chilling in my flat in London trying to shake off flu to a quick rehearsal, straight onto a German tourbus, then a Dover ferry, before a headline show in Paris, five radio performances, some very good coffee, a train to Lausanne and now...

I've been up to my iBalls (sorry) in new technology this week. I decided to have a geeky update on gadgets at the Apple store and have spent the last few days trying to get the new gizmos plus my existing phones, laptops, TVs, desktops and tablets to all talk...

So I'm sitting on the Eurostar watching an orange sunset over snowy fields somewhere near Dover *digs out iPhone map* actually between Ashford and Hythe to be precise, and feeling a little rough around the edges after last nights' gig in Camden at the Barfly.

Woke up early for...

It felt deeply satisfying to return home and travel the length and breadth of the country this week. From Brighton and the south coast we went up to Glasgow and back down to London as we tried to squeeze in as many regional radio stations as possible. As we drove...
