Fabulous interview from Hi-Fi Popcorn Bobby with Clues who play here next week. That interview also throws up this gem of a video which you really must watch right now.

In other news – Public Enemy are using Sellaband to raise $250,000 for their next album. I wrote about it here. Loads of other stuff over there including Death Mob Dublin, Google Wave explained, Jesus Christ (The Indie Band) and a bonkers Múm video.

Don’t forget, tomorrow as part of HWCH, I’ll be participating in panels and talks galore with brilliant people like Anthony from The Hype Machine, Sean from Drowned in Sound, UnaRocks and James Foley of Record of the Day. The Button Factory – 2pm.

Later that night – Banter hosted by Jim with myself and Una discussing blogs and DJing after between the HWCH bands from 10:45pm. RSVP here.
