Guten Tag, Megamoog!

Megamoog came over to Europe for a mini tour in the UK and Germany last month and I managed to miss the whole thing because I was overseas myself.

As a little consolation, I found out Megan started a blog just before she left home – – it’s a diary of the tour, with quite a few videos and some photos. It made my day!

Check the blog on here.

Hold on twice...

Even the rain let go, let go, let go...

Matthew (who runs does an ace night in Bristol called Big Pink Cake) mentioned this video to me about a month ago and I have watched it over a dozen times ever since.

The whole thing - music, words, watercolours and animation - is made by Francois, and i wonder if there's anything this boy cannot do.

I first heard of him a couple of years ago, back when Camera obscura still played at small venues, and he was the support act for a gig they played at Cargo. He played with his band, The Atlas Mountains, and they were amazing! I went back home with a couple of cd-rs and a smile on my face.

He has released a couple of splits since then, and by the looks of it, is always busy making awesome-nesses!

More about Francois on his website or on myspace.
