In response to Simon’s post

IRE: SUNNYVALE NOISE SUB-ELEMENT: They were distinctly fantastic, kids. Despite some, uh, interesting monitor issues, they really delivered the noisy/motorik/techno goods in spades. Not being able to hear yourself onstage has never sounded so good. It would appear that they’ve come on yet further leaps and bounds since AUDIOSCOPE02, and their newer aggressive stance distinctly suits them. The audience didn’t know what to think. Hurrah!

RE: SOUVARIS: *cringe*. Fucking “rock stars”…

In other news, The Daily Telegraph this Thursday covering Vincent Gallo‘s vow that he’d never work with a professional actress not called Chloe Sevigny again was fantastic – the best laugh I’ve had at my parents’ breakfast table in a fair wee while. Apparently he’s made a public apology for his new film Brown Bunny, and said that he never meant to make it so long, dull and self-indulgent. I was appalled – what happened to the asshole stance of old? Anyway, here’s hoping it wins something at Cannes…

Dave Stockwell

David can always be relied on to end his e-mails with one of those 'np: blah blah' things in order to remind us of how much more music he listens to every day than anybody else. His interests include rockin ' out in a major style as guitarist in Souvaris, throwing frisbees from tall buildings "just to see what happens" and simply kickin' back with his bitches in a gold-plated jacuzzi.
