having not won a single thing since guessing the correct number of sweets in a jar at a school fete when i was about nine, i was very pleased to hear this morning that i’m like the winner of a subscription to a series of cds on three lobed records. entitled purposeful availment, its like this nice limited run of cdeps by bands including bardo pond, tarentel, shannon wright and mick turner from dirty three. needless to say this makes me very happy indeeed. hurrah for three lobed, and hurrah as well for fakejazz, who seemed to be involved in me winning somehow.


Ollie lives in Cambridge and puts on gigs as part of Crushing Death and Grief.
