Back to my island it's all sunny beaches and blooming flowers, and suddenly I wonder why when I'm in London I miss this place so much and when I'm here I just can't wait to go back to Blighty. But, c'est la vie.
What happened to the boys in these days?
Peter kicked off his UK tour with a gig in Cardiff, where he played all alone. The setlist was slightly different from the other nights (thanks to exploding dim-wit): music when the lights go out, fuck forever, dilly boys, ballad of grimaldi, time for heroes, ha ha wall, lady don't fall backwards, salome, love reign o'er me, albion, new love grows on trees, lost art of murder, killamangiro, merry go round, arcady, what a waster, sheepskin tearaway.

Last of the English Roses didn't make it to the Top 40. Apparently it stalled at n. 67. I don't know why I'm having a hazy deja-vu feeling.
Anyway, The Times gave 3 stars to G/W.
And this is a review from Scotland on Sunday.
Tonight Peter is playing Southampton Guildhall.
And now something about Drew. Alison LMHR wrote this to FDW:
"Hi guys, this is Drew's new login and he's asked me to let you know that he'll be playing at Kieran Leonard's Gaslight night tomorrow (Sunday), and will be joined by Kyle Falconer of The View fame. It''s at The Hideaway, 114 Junction Road, N19 5LB. Near Archway tube. It's £2 to get in and it kicks off at 8 and goes on until 1. No idea what time Drew's on sorry. Drew will be back on tour with Peter in Brighton on the 19th".
Damn, I wish I was in London...
