I've been listening to D Johnston's "Rejected Unknown" LP today, which I borrowed from a friend. Great stuff. Very Treacy-esque in places.

It could be Dan's head photo-shopped onto somebody else's torso.

I don't recall seeing a photo of Dan where he isn't wearing sleeves. Anybody?

As a tribute to the late Syd Barrett, they've re-recorded their version of "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives", with vari...

For people in the UK, BBC2 are repeating their documentary about Syd's life tomorrow evening at 11:20. It was first shown a couple of years ago and if I remember correctly, features some nice clips of the Pink Floyd's early promo films.

Jowe posted this today to his Yahoo community: Hi friends Nikki Sudden's tribute night on Friday was a great event. Sad and happy at the same time. I am told that the Swell Maps songs sounded great! It was great fun to splay them again, but it's very strange to sing them, instead of Nikki. Richard E...

Unfortunately the Paris gig (June, 16th) is cancelled again :-( Which should mean that Toulouse the following day is off as well. That's a shame.

My name is Luca

Here's another TVP-related one for you. John and Gerard Bennet, who played on the first TVP single and helped Dan out at the 100 Club and Brighton gigs last August, have formed a new project called Luca. I think Ed Ball helped them out with the recordings. There's four tracks to listen to. http://ww...
