Wolfmother - Sundial
I totally got my Mojo back today. I’ve had a really shit week; a combination of work and money and having to come back to Leicester after a weekend with my friends in Manchester. I’ve been a proper miserable cunt and I haven’t even tweeted much or anything. That shit is serious.
Then today I spoke to my Mum and listened to the new Wolfmother album stupidly loud and suddenly everything was fixed. This song is in honour of today’s Mojo recovery.
I also went to work tonight and, for the first time in a week, didn’t have to spend six lonnnnnnng hours making coleslaw jacket potatoes for ungrateful people in the café bar. Instead I got to watch two hours of The Fastest Clock In The Universe, which was one of the most completely filthy plays I have ever seen, and quite brilliant for it. Jamie Winston is incredible, and totally lifts everyone else’s performance too. The most annoying thing happened near the end though. There was this dude who kept getting his mobile phone out, but he was on the other side of the audience so wasn’t responding to my ordinary Evil Look Tactic. I ended up having to run round the outside of the studio to give him a bollocking (I am a power freak - I learnt all about it in my Cultural Leadership module at uni, dontchaknow) and in the space of me moving about ten yards, the actors went from a perfectly normal conversation to all-out unbridled mentalism, with flashing lights and fist fights and, amazingly, one dude had even found a gun somewhere. I was all like “I’ve been gone about fifteen seconds. What the fuck did I miss?”
Very good though, and it only added to my Wolfmother joy. Oh, and The Travelling Band are playing a free gig in London next Thursday and if I get the night off I am SO THERE. Leicester’s not so bad really. It’s like when we used to have to do averages at school. The average of Manchester and London is pretty much exactly Leicester. See? Not so bad.
