Music product person at the BBC 🎵 Prev Radio 1, Radio 4, BBC News 🌍 LDN/AYW 📷 iPhone, RX 100, GoPro. Views here are nobody's fault but my own. 😱
At about three, when Saharan dust via Ophelia turned everything a hazy yellow-pink, we all wandered onto the roof and waved our iPhones at the heavens like dicks. Unfortunately the white balance correction made it look like any other grey Autumnal London day, so I had to fake this using VSCO.
The surgically precise techno of Ryoji Ikeda is always welcome. Less so the throng of besuited Selfridges employees who spent the show trying to stop people taking photos (unsuccessfully). Also baffled by the retro audience member in Doc Martens and Kappa popper trousers. Both items were worn in 1997, obviously, but on the same person?
Sleaford Mods. Lyrics paint me as part of the problem (tick: metropolitan, arty, social media user), but I still find them very funny. Lots of lovely grizzled old punks in the crowd. Is it a live show at all, though, if Andrew touches his laptop exactly once, to start the beats, then spends the rest of the show gyrating a beer bottle against his crotch?
Graffiti of Vila Nova de Milfontes, Portugal.
Scenes from West Wales. A beetle who can't fly, a helicopter flying beneath my feet, and swallows who turn up this week every year en route to Africa, signaling the end of summer.
