I'm tired. While today has consisted of nothing more than cooking myself a tasty lunch and going to the pub with Pasta Paul, I'm still a bit tired for some reason. Last night was spent sending the crowds MENTAL at High Voltage, whilst in the company of The Scare and recent HV signees Bureau. The Scare are an Aussie band based in Brum (cue further Black Country connections) and are rather, well, scary, while Bureau are locals who peddle rather ace 80's style electro pop. All good.

I also attended my first ever Blog meeting yesterday. Organised by the rather lovely Kate from the Manchizzle who managed to pull 22 of Manchesters bloggers together for a meeting which consisted of many hello's and pints of beer. Nice work, and if any of you blog in your respective cities you should really think about doing something similar. Big shout to James from Yer Mam! - nice to meet you.

I've been hanging back on leaking something off Liam Frosts debut - I'm happy to tell you all it's awesome. I can't quite contain myself any longer though, so find below my favourite track. Whenever I hear it live, it sends shivers in places I never know I had nerves, and it has an identical effect on record. Haunting and emotional, it should blast it's way into any music lovers top ten of 2006. Happy listening.
