Sounds good ..........
Go ahead.....ask me !!!
Regarding my www - i got kicked off freeserve so i lost the site.....
in the midst of fixing up my new site at the minute...
......Brighton is about 300 miles away from Stockpor.....t by the way

Alright, Jon! My first question would naturally be: will this be yr first trip to the US?

BTW, I'm going to try and get this interview set up as a blog on BeatConscious (just a few techie matters to sort out in that regard....) That way, either one of us should be able to post something to the interview thread as long as we've got internet access, whether we can access our email or not (that might be useful for you while yr on this trip to San Fran....) I have used blogger.com in the past, to post to thedownbeat.org, so I'm thinking that's an option. I'll let you know if/when I get the OK from my domain host to go ahead.

You mean for work purposes ?? - Yes !
If you mean generally - No !
I've had many a holiday in the US with my family.......
I lived in Vancouver (not , strictly speaking, the US) for 8 months in 1997....
I Love it......it's the scale of the place really........you can jog from one end of Britain to the other in an afternoon............if you get up early enough......
But America is 'kin huge.......you have different time zones and speak all funny ; )

>>BTW, what's the date of your May gig in SF?

MAY 31st

>>Well, so ... yeah, the scale of the place ... huge is right. Part of what that means for the American psyche, I think, is the sense that if things are not going well for you where you are, you can drive somewhere far away (but still be in yr native country, speaking yr native language, however strange you may sound when you do so....) and start all over again ... I wonder if there's any equivalent to that notion of starting over fresh for Brits?

Yeah.......depends what u've done.........like done an album and it's available in all shops all round the country.......

>>What's it take to get away from that "everybody knows me and everything silly thing I've ever done" feeling?


>>I've been to SF myself, but ages ago ... I'll be very interested in your impressions of the place and how the people treat you. I've heard good things about Vancouver, as far as physical beauty, but that there's a pretty big rich people / poor people divide ... whaddya think, is it worth a visit?


>>Ever been to Washington DC?


>>OK, off to get started on that weblog set-up businezz .... carry on...

Jon, I put the intended target page for this interview on the BeatConscious site last night ... you can get to it from the link on the updated FLYpaper page
Sometime today, I should get the permissions and other info from my host which will enable me to set up the weblog ... once I get that established and can test it, I'll send you the invite and we can segue into the next part of our interview....

'til then, tell me something about the performance coming up in SF -- What's the venue? What's the lineup for your show ... that kind of thing.

The line up is ME and a box of RECORDS.........
I play hip hop, funk, bit of rock, bit of a melting pot of anything that grooves at base level.
I think i'm supporting "Spiritualized"......
It's all still pretty hazey.....and it's not too far away..........shit !
