Quick update

Posted: November 11th, 2003, by Chris S

Just a quick update to my previous message – the Wolves! (of Greece) 10 incher is coming out on Gringo Records. All done and dusted and going to be pressed and another 3 songs recorded for a seven inch afterwards too. Hurrah!

I’m back in the UK and its fucking freezing. Everyone in our street got burgled last week apart from us for some reason. I suspect my housemate Amelia is the culprit.

And I don’t have a job. But I do have a stereo again and my records.

Currently listening to:

“Bad Reputation” Thin Lizzy

“Fire Music” Archie Shepp

“Natural Boogie” Hound Dog Taylor & The Houserockers

“Keep Your Lamp Trimmed And Burning” Mississippi Fred McDowell

“Hearts Of Oak” Ted Leo / Pharmacists

1993 Peel Session by PJ Harvey

“Rio Grande Mud” ZZ Top

Live bootleg of Unit Ama with Lungfish

“Who Put Out The Fire?” Monorchid

Rye Coalition, Ted Leo, Arab On Radar and Hot Snakes from MichiganFest DVD


“Vampire Vultures” John Fahey

“Look Out Whitey, Black Power’s Gon’ Get Yo’ Mama!” Julius Lester


Building another FX pedal board


Finishing last bunch of Reynolds recordings, sorting out Last Of The Real Hard Men recordings (note this is below wanking in the list)


A T shirt with a Koala on it saying “G’day from Australia”

About 2 extra stones of body weight

A glum expression

Chris lives for the rock and can often be seen stumbling drunkenly on (and off) stages far and wide. Other hobbies include wearing jumpers, arsing about with Photoshop and trying to beat the world record for the number of offensive comments made in any 24 hour period. He has been married twice but his heart really belongs to his guitars. All 436 of them.
