was an amazing night! we came away with evan dando's award after getting mashed with him and mick jones. we played our song in skeleton outfits in front of an assembled crowd of - the killers, the strokes, janes addiction, alice cooper, ron jeremy, klaxons, mark ronson, the teenagers and several hollywood producers, actors and liggers. was very, very weird and unreal. it was weird sitting at the table and having people like kelly osborne and the strokes come over to say hello.

ended up getting so wasted i puked. our next gig is on the second stage at coachella in a couple of days. life is very weird. we're on heavy radio play over here so i'd tentatively say it's looking better over here than in the uk.

there's video of it streaming here so you can ignore us and watch jane's addiction! http://www.myspace.com/nmemagazine

What is the music like, which band is it closest to?

protein
24-04-2008, 16:12:40
hmm. i guess you take a pinch of french electro, add a bit of 90s grunge, add a trist of techno and season with oodles of indie.

our performance will stream in about five minutes.

harmar superstar is indeed a superstar. he's such a nice guy.

Ron Jeremy? :eek:

protein

got a very amusing picture of me and him. he looks very tired and medicated. he was hanging around backstage to try and meet janes addiction who didn't seem very impressed by him.

Vincent

Ron Jeremy looks OK though

Vincent

He probably thinks "what an asshole, I'd rather go and suck my penis"

Protein, I can't go to Coachella this year because I have to work this weekend but I will DEFINATELY be there when you play the Casbah. Shall I bring scrumpy? ;)

protein
24-04-2008, 18:24:21

here's me and the hoff at coachella.


it's been a good tour so far for celeb hang outs. harmar superstar joined us onstage and then spent the evening in our trailer with all the other cool kids getting utterly caned. we've had that guy who played frodo outside our trailer, paris hilton, the dude from aerosmith with the big lips, the guy from the klaxons, sean penn, portishead, the verve -portishead and the verve seem really nice by the way, jeff from portishead is a totally cool normal guy.

portishead absolutely killed coachella. probably one of the best gigs i've ever seen in my life, their new stuff is fucking genius. the verve were also amazing and their stuff is exciting, and roger walters was good because i love the songs him and his session band were playing.

it's been insane so far.

we also got to play on the new gran tourismo game that has our tune on it in some sort of game tent.

today we did a tv thing for aol and an instore at ameboe in hollywood. both pretty ball-aching but we got to meet some american fans.

tomorrow we're on the carson daily show. haven't heard of it but it's apparently pretty good. then the tour proper starts.

lots more exciting but secret stuff to report soon.

Hey, Protein! I sent you two PMs and haven't got any response yet. Did you get them and will my name be on the list tomorrow or should I buy a ticket?

there's a problem with the counterglow pm database apparently. which one is the casbah?

C.G.B. Spender
30-04-2008, 07:29:41
I wish Nav would fix it.
We should try to get Ron Jeremy as tech jockey.

Would you please ask him to join us, protein?

Oh, and Hässelhofer too!!!

Will you do a "I've been looking for Freeeeee-dom" remix?

What Funko said. If you could give my name (John Jackson) to the doorman then that would be great or if that's not possible then I'll just buy a ticket. Looking forward to hearing you guys play. :beer:

Vincent
30-04-2008, 15:33:13
WTF is John Jackson?

Funko
30-04-2008, 15:36:48
If John Jackson doesn't work at the door try "Oerdin off Counterglow"

Vincent
30-04-2008, 15:40:08
Or "John Long Jackson"
