Twelv, Nick Cave and Debbie Harry, The Hussy, One Night Stand competition etc

We went to The Brickfields Festival at Carfax on saturday night, it was awesome, thank you Jani, this was the track of the night for me,
thank you Digital Rocket, cool catching up with Graeme, dancing till 4am is one of my favorite things. We also met Inge Beckman and Mr Sakitumi, awesome people.

Monday morning madness for you all.

Gun Club's Jeffrey Lee Pierce who passed away in 1996 from a brain hemorrhage was working on some tracks, unfinished, they have been unearthed and a tribute album featuring Nick Cave collaborating with Debbie Harry amongst others has been released, here are some samplers for you to get excited about:
