First up: I think I might buy this book on the strength of its cover. Utterly love it. And seeing it very briefly a few weeks ago (it’s taken two weeks of googling to find out I hadn’t dreamed it up) inspired a little story. But more on that another time. Gorgeous though, isn’t it?


I had two really nice blasts from the past yesterday. One was a phone call (thank you Mr P) and the other was bumping into someone I spent a fair amount of time with a few (seven or eight) years ago (hello, miss T). So, in the spirit of cool things from a while ago, and because Suede are re-forming briefly, here’s something I listened to a lot as a much younger man than I am today. I think they’ve definitely stood the test of time.
