Posted: October 6th, 2006, by Chris S


Like great adventurers of yore, Team Damn You! set off to Chicago in September to attend the Touch & Go 25th Anniversary.
We took a squillion photos and they, along with some diary style blurb is here:

Photos for your eyes

Posted: August 4th, 2006, by Chris S

I have been clearing out a lot of my house to keep no-job boredom at bay and in doing so I have found loads and loads of old photos and gig tickets and set lists and other geeky stuff I have saved away over the last few years.
So I got a Flickr account and scanned them all in together with a load of more recent digital photos of holidays, festivals and the like. Go have a look if you’re as bored as me:

Some things

Posted: August 5th, 2004, by Marceline Smith

I got some nice things in the post the other day from Alistair of Tangents/Unpopular fame. Some nice looking records (which obviously I haven’t listened to yet) and some badges but best of all was some little A5 photozines. Simply done with stamped sugar paper covers and nice shiny paper inside they’re apparently a kind of photo diary, random unconnected photos of everyday scenes and things and people. They’re really nice detailed interesting photos though with lots of my favourite things – text, signs, graffiti, patterns – and kept me occupied for a 10 minute bus ride no bother. It’s also made me long once again for a digital camera. It’s all very well having a nice proper 35mm camera but you can’t stick it in your pocket when you go for a walk. Not to mention the waiting up to a year before I have the spare cash to get films developed. Anyway, the zines are £2 each so go spend some money.

Okay, diskant-related live event plugging time:

#1 – UTER and SUNNYVALE NOISE SUB-ELEMENT play together at The Buffalo Bar in London on August 21st in honour of our fancy new record that you’re sick of hearing about (the sooner you buy one, the sooner they’re all sold and we stop going on about it). Do come, it’ll be great.

#2 – The line-up for AUDIOSCOPE 04 has just been announced with our own Chris Summerlin playing with headliner Damo Suzuki, diskant faves Cat on Form, Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies and Sunnyvale and those OXES fools being only a few of the great bands on offer. Be there! I will be.
