"Oizo Mr How Awesome You Are With Your Wonderful Shiny Beard I Just Ordered A SoMe T Shirt With You On It I Love This T Shirt Cant Wait To See This Movie"
As plus one of Bea, daughter of Erickson Beamon's creative director, we arrived by cab with a fashion photographer/former editor, design consultant/stylist Julian with Tank Mag feather mask, & Mia of EB posse/former 333 girl, whereupon landing on the steps I'm told "Dude, Roisin Murphy is behind us".. thus beginning the onslaught of head-adorned guests, spying Giles Deacon, Judy Blame, Katie Grand, Daphne Guinness, Jefferson Hack, Erin O'Connor, and Jacquetta Wheeler etc..
Spotted The P.I.X's Princess Julia spinning usual Blondiesque new wave pop tracks to the bombardment of champagne, parma ham wrapped truffle and lobster canapes, fresh oysters and patisserie corners filled with doughnuts, green tea chocolates, pistachio macaroons and florentines.
Then entering the mental exhibition filled from brillo pads to hoods and bonnets, Anna Piaggi posed perfectly with Manolo Blahnik, where I met that foreign girl who's always gorgeous in the Boombox pics leaving Bea to do her rounds conversing in pain (looking classy in her baby bonnet custom made by Stephen Jones) with Agent Provocateur's Joe Corres.
Later was introduced to Bruno Frisoni and Hervé van der Straten (wearing ACTUAL Poilane loaf) before bumping into Hannah Marshall and Dr Noki amongst more London based designers adorning outfits circa A-Trak at Disneyland.
Telegraph woz there
..Back in Norwich (missing lectures again), Caspa & Rusko play teeny club here tomorrow.
There's something about dubstep that irritates me and I want to say it's due to being sort of lowbrow.. but then again FIDGET was hardly the height of sophistication.

At last something for Stephen Jones' launch party at the V&A next week.
Vintage turquoise VM taffeta + overweight Postman Pat hairband is the best one can do, when one doesn't 'do' hats, at the milliner of all milliner's exhibition.
Soundtrack to the journey:
Zombie Disco Squad - Eurovision off Teki's new sublabel.. Mmm, Sound Pellegrino.
High Rankin - Escape From the Hood/No Money For Guns
Worthy - Crack-El (Justin Martin's Stoopit Crunk-Ill Hyphy Mix)
and probably some erotic shit off Tiga's Ciao.

I honestly don't understand why there's so much gesticulation from DJ's during Faces'uch?
Brodi, that's just the SONG (all the jolly brapbrap fingers are pre-Motherfucking Bass coming in).. I know you look more interesting with the jazzhands-headphone rapid on/off like your ears are itchy combos than when I stand there tweaking EQ's with a Microsoft-brand mouse but honestly, we know it's all a farce.
And if you didn't duck down for about 5 minutes during the mad pitch up we probably would have thought that was you too, maybe the best option is to stick to a simple nodding of the head, then as the night goes on begin some more intense bobbing up & down (note: IN time), before bringing out some sort of wild flagellation of the arm with which you consider of no further use.

After my mini-rant re: Jesse Rose, I have to say I do like the lovely retro vocal samples vs generic retard noises in 'You're All Over My Head' on What Do you Do If You Don't?
P.S LOL at Norwich locals going mental to Decoy last night.

Is Fire honestly a decent substitute for The End?
http://www.endclub.com/closingvideo - Bit of a boring video but sums up 'nuff stuff.
I am surprisingly as upset as the rest when I realise too late I will never be able to comfortably take the 25 the TWO stops down the road to lie in the back corner in the main room in prep before non-stop blindly going mental for the next 3 hours.
Fire on the other hand was a goddamn MESS. We were constantly losing each other, off our silly faces, wondering why the HELL we were in these endless labyrinthine dark rooms, in SOUTH LONDON.
Is Erol going to DIE during his 6 hour set?
Maybe we should help him as dedicated fans to stay awake by delivering tangible obstacles along the lines of really sharp flaming ladyfingers.
Er.. isn't Daniel Steinberg a bit of a messy man?
Can he smarten up before he plays with Style of Eye, Worthy, and what was it RIVA Starr at Egg?
I know this is bit older in Proxy radio mixes 'n such but it's just SO GOOD:

YAY Golden Traxe leaked before 23rd Feb. (Sorry Mr Record Companies but like HOW long have we been waiting for this? Favourite track apart from released Poke/Soap/etc will have to be Drivetime.)
But also in good news: Octet- Euro vs dollar (Pilooski Edit): http://www.zshare.net/audio/53838199689b46fc/
BTW how upsetting is 'Touch My Horn'. I should've guessed from the title but it's really a bit fucking shit.
How can you make a song SO boring with a plethora of unsuspecting horn noises. I remember a time when I loved him, holding onto tables for dear life when Jesse Rose and his wonky ways came on.. But something dire's happened to him since that time he made Hot Chip chant his name like a douche who touches himself in AA underwear with matching socks and has Hitler fantasies during sex.

Fashion editors at Vice must be like yeeaah we're well 'high fashion' when we TRY.. well done on the shitty lighting/direction getting in Annabel Mehran (always a bit off/unbalanced levels of quality vs pretension). NICE ONE.
Funny how it's the one post no one has an opinion on, average 'ironic' readers probably despondent at lack of titties/dead cats stapled on some puke.

Zomby's enjoyably titled Fuck Mixing, Let's Dance/Where were you in '92? etc rave messes worry me. But the artwork kinda makes me want to live in a packet of Toblerone.
(Aaw, look at his 'Registered' symbol. LOL.)
