Tonight featured a happenin’ party on the beach after work with DJ Bobby Ewing of Discobar Galaxie, straight from Belgium. I learnt only later that the party was organised by a friend of mine – the one that strikes up two full time jobs plus this partying gig on the side then complains that all these jobs together amount up to close to eight hours of work a day ! Some people …

He’s planning to do this weekly, I’m all for it. Next time Kristien is here for a week I’m dragging her down there.

On the way home I passed by a bar/bakery called “Cal Wingo”, so I guess our Andy can finally call some bar home. It’s in calle Maria Aguilo if he cares to go down here in the future.

Music-wise I’ve been enjoying the following albums an incredible lot:

  • Twilight Singers – Powder Burns: Rarely has a Dulli disc grabbed me so little at first only to strike back with a vengeance making me realize every single song on the disc is stellar
  • Killers – hot fuss: amazing how I completely managed to miss this album when it first came out. After seeing the clip for All these things that I’ve done, I was hooked, and at least half of the album is awesom
  • Phoenix – Live thirty days ago: they have a new album out, which is pretty good as well, but I only recently snapped up this live album, and oh my God do they make their songs rock. The album versions are often slightly on the sugary side, but the live versions on this album have both swing and power. “If I ever feel better” sounds amazing with the extended outro, as do most of the other songs – what an incredible live band. I hope to see them live again with this knowledge, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it even more than the previous times I’ve seen them without knowing many of their songs.
If I ever feel better
remind me to spend some time with you
you can give me your number
when it’s all over I’ll let you know
