"Hello. uh, writing in capitals in the subject area always FEELS LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING FOR NO APPARENT REASON doesn't it. yes yes i know i need to get my own log in but i don't even own a computer anymore let alone have the internet so these visits to coffe shops in Finchley don't seem to justify it. now. I'M PLAYING WITH ALBERT HAMMOND JR ON SUNDAY sorry started shouting again there. I'm terribly excited, I've got the weirdest bunch of people to play with me and I'm so giddy i accidentally just skipped into Argos and bought a juicer. Mr "John The Motherfucking Reverend", as he introduces himself as in telephone conversations, will be joining me there and also later that night in the Lock Tavern. is it the Lock Tavern? Good. Yes. um. Come along, dance, drink, laugh. Summers over but we all know Winter's what we do best. Love love Drew x x x x"
