Philip Pullman’s new Lyra book is out and I’m somewhere around the halfway mark. What he continues to do is build upon these fascinating worlds and he’s doing it in a way that seems like gold to his existing fanbase, yet manages to draw new readers into his dense shit. It’s incredible and I would be reading it right now if I weren’t writing about it. I’m reminded of that Ian Curtis quote. Something something, out of hand.

Miss June (NZ) are something of a bang between Sonic Youth and Le Tigre. The Lady Ess suggested we try The Old Blue Last for some high quality impromptu noise. I made it about halfway up their crooked staircase before sanctioning whatever was going on in that room. Annabel Liddell is a presence to be reckoned with and the band are loud in the best of ways.
