I just got back from Rough Trade East, listening to the album.

Johnny Marr co-wrote the song 'Come Tomorrow, Come Today' which I'm going to listen in 15 minutes (now listening to the second song What is My Role?).

Really look forward to see tonight's instore live.

Incidentally Edwyn played live this morning 11:30 BBC 6Music, listen again from iPlayer.

One of the best albums in 2010!

Come Tomorrow, Come Today is quite nice song.

I'm so pleased to find out that Edwyn's son William played the drums in All My Days.
I remember seeing him in Tokyo when he was 3 years old. :)

I had to travel from Finchley, couldn't get RTE before 19:00, but enjoyed the gig very much.
When they're playing 'Falling and Laughing' I spotted Grace (Edwyn's wife and manager) and able to thank her.

Barrie Cadogan, Carwyn Ellis, Andy Hackett and Sean Read played with Edwyn.

I didn't see the drummer (Paul Cook was the drummer at QEH gig).

I unsubscribed to this newsletter months ago (regretting this already), so I can't help you now, but for future reference they regularly put out music comps, always nature-oriented. Sometime contributor Roy Wilkinson is elder brother of British Sea Power brothers Yan and Hamilton, and so it was linked on their forum many moons ago.

Did you pre-order from Rough Trade?
Apparently pre-order from RT you get a bonus disc and a print.
However, the first batch of the print was not in good condition, RT sent out replacement later.

Got back from Oxford gig which was excellent.

Boz was wearing black fringe shirt looked great.
However, when he was playing keyboards there was some problem.
I hope he'll be goatie-less near future.

I'm very impressed with Tom Edwards who was replacing Barrie Cadogan, really brillant guitarist.

When I was on the way back to London I realised I left the keys at home.
I tried to contact landlord's daughter, but she didn't answer my phone call.
I had to ring one of Solo users who lives near my place, really sorry for disturbing her sleep.
On the way to her house I got a call from landlord's daughter, eventually got back home.
