Alot of people think the "city banker types" are tame ex-public schoolboys, who have a pint, talk about 'ruggers' and go home. But they behave like fucking animals, they only have to be in the pub 10 minutes after coming out of work and they've got their hands all over the women, leaching and spilling their pints everywhere. Tiresome.

Well, if you go drinking in the Punch and Judy, you get what you asked for really. Tourists and twats. it's alright at lunchtime, but I doubt I would ever go there in the evening. Almost all the pubs in Covent Garden suck. Overpriced and full of cunts. So much so that I walk to soho if i want a pint at lunch...which I am going to do quite soon.

to be fair, i did get the feeling that the punch and judy was a bit like that, but i needed to be in bloomsbury for an interview at 4, had some time to kill and didn't really want to be too far away from russell square at any point.

i've given up trying to find any pub that isn't a rip off in london, to be honest. not that i've tried particularly hard.. £6 for a pint of stella and a diet coke. fucking hell

That IS a lot. £3.05 a pint is pretty average in the west end. Less the further out you go, but not much. I am quite choosey about where I drink because of it though. i am not paying through the nose to go somewhere shit. My favourite place in town is called De Hems. It's a Dutch pub in Chinatown that Paul and I frequent for lunch about 4 times a week. Really decent food and nice beer. Still a bit pricey, but worth it. Going there shortly. Kind of want to go now though, as I am bored.

Just got my promo of the Real Damage EP through. Only just started listening, but the recorded version of Sealegs is lovely.

Only just now? I've had it for weeks!!! GO ME!!! (probably helps that i am engaged to his label rep)

Sealegs is very nice, yes. That SO last week though. He's already demoing for the next album, the first of which i got yesterday. Looking to the future now. All those songs seem ancient now, as I've been living with them for so long.

That it does. Got the full band treatment but in a mellower way.

It is kind of weird hearing 'Back To Sleep' finally recorded. There was a point where I thought it'd just been totally abandoned for good. Same goes for 'Sunshine State', but things just feel like they're going slower from perspective of listening to bootlegs for so long.

does sunshine state have a band on it? it's kind of been released already - there was a recording different to the demo version (played with acoustic rather than electric guitar) on smalltown america's PSB#8, so it would be quite different to hear it with a band.

No band. Can't find the demo versions at the moment to compare, so i can only presume it's new. I am pretty sure it's got some strings in it somewhere, which I am sure the demo didn't. Could be wrong.
