The Great Escape 2008: Day 3

Ida Maria playing on the balcony of the Theatre Royal Day 3 threw us straight into the thick of it with a midday offering of Ida Maria semi-acoustic a top of the Theatre Royal balcony. You’re delegate pass didn’t get you far with this gig – it was a complete freeby. However, having said that […]

Living for the weekend

He lives for the weekend That’s what its all about these days apparently, in the real world [god, I hate that phrase]. So that’s what I’ve been doing… and so has Claudio, evidently. Album cover of the forthcoming Pablo’s Finest Hour EP I don’t know how she does it, it could quite possibly be a […]

Back once again…*

Right, I promise (myself mainly) to be a bit more up too date with these updates (its all in the name I suppose). So, what have the past 2-3 months had to offer. Well, as far as updates are concerned its been a dozen weeks of not a great deal punctuated by gigs and birthdays. […]

Remember remember the… well, just November really.

Sunset over Castleford, Manchester. As per usual I’ve been pretty slack on the updates of Andresworld of late but despite being unemployed I find myself quite busy [okay you can pick yourselves off of the floor now, its not that funny]. So come with me back in time to rediscover November… doo dee doo doo, […]

Super Star DJs… Here We Go!

Okay, so I was able to disappear off to Manchester at the start of this week on the proviso that it would improve my career prospects, and wasn’t just a jolly like last time. It turned out to be about half right… Pablo’s Finest Hour As you may or may not know, all of October […]

Manchester la la la!

A quick trip up to Manchester for the Fuse FM launch party, some PPE curry, a meal with Dan, Lizzie and Claudio, and a trip to the opening night of The Warehouse Project managed to finish a seventeen night sprint of being away and with only one night in my own bed. Andy ‘squater’ Jackson […]

The London Design Festival

Righty, well! The observant amongst you might notice that although this post says that it was written on the 26th of September it in fact wasn’t. Basically, I’ve been up to a fair bit lately and rather than let my laziness be reflected on my site I’ll just cheat instead. So, Scooby Doo style time […]

So that was summer…

Well I think we’re all agreed that Summer 2007 has been pretty crap. No denying it really but what with the combination of rain, flooding, lack of sun and the massive downer that is graduating [for me at least] it hasn’t been fun. However there have been a couple of notable exceptions. In July I […]

Busy busy busy

Well, apologies for the lack of posts recently. Since handing in dissertation/birthday there was more revelry followed by exams followed by more revelry followed by moving out of Manchester. And in that time I managed to go to Rockness up in Inverness, Glastonbury Festival down in Pilton and graduate back in Manchester. So here we […]

Schools out!

…well until Monday at least. Enjoying the nice weather with a post-dissertation pint[s] I’ve given myself the week off. Its the least I deserve after spending the past five weeks trapped in my room watching the sunny days going by. But thankfully the dissertation has been handed in and I’m sure that’s a load off […]
