Post Party Ponderings..

Well, for me personally it was the best party I’ve had at the Slimelight so far… In previous years that had always been some emergency or other and much stress in the first hour wondering if more than five people would actually turn up…

Unusually this year there was no emergency, we got there early and already had a queue at 9pm! It was great to see so many old and new friends all in one spot – just a shame that I didn’t get to spend as much time as I’d have liked to with some of them.

So who was there? Well, for starters, Belle and Lutz from the band, although Belle had to leave around midnight to DJ at his usual Saturday night residency at Decadence @ St Moritz; unfortunately, Bryn never made it (girl trouble, I believe…). Raquel – probably my best friend here in London & Jose, Elena – Raquel’s flatmate who used to be my neighbour, Susana from Greenhaus, Stephan from Luxembourg and his friends Pete & Bernadette, Howard from myspace & friends, Liz who helps me with PR and her man Nick, most of Nfd and their friends were there (thanks for dragging them out Megan! :), georgeous Interlock bassist Syan was there with Pete from Maxdmyz (or however you spell it!), Chris and Pete who I met when Djing for the Smoke The Thin Glass Black shows, Andy from ProtoAngel, Darkwheel from was there plus a whole bunch of people I’ve met over the years including Oscar, Copsey, Mass (stop ogling the girls in corsets!) as well as Achim from Slimelight with his girl-friend and a bunch of other DJs and staff who popped in for a bit… I’m sure I’ve forgotten a whole load of lovely people (sorry!!!!) – but it was a real pleasure to have each and everyone there to party with us!

Special thanks to Raquel, Lutz and Stephan for DJing and to Mak and Dettie for providing the venue and the Cava!

But now I must get back to planning ahead for the album release… Have a good day!
