The Swiss update

The EP is almost finished now and it's mental. I can't wait for everyone to hear it. Our best buddy, Donnie Sloan is putting the finishing touches on it in between working with Kylie and Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

The guys are real busy for the next minute with two of them playing as the Empire of The Sun backing band for Parklife and then the Ladyhawke national support in November.

Make sure you become a fan on facebook so you don't miss out on upcoming news and wicked other stuff.

regarding 2007

Louis mentioning his lifestyle in 2007 reminded me of the time he was in town with Damn Arms when they were supporting Midnight Juggernauts and we DJ'd at the afterparty and were met with levels of success.

It was in a ballroom dancing hall. In the first photo I am just unzipping my pink canvas Ikea cd wallet prior to doors / pre-set. In the second photo I am zipping up my pink canvas Ikea cd wallet as either Tim & Yama or Juggers are coming on / post-set.

Thanks to Zonk for the photos.

Since Damn Arms dissolved last year the boys have all gone on to be very busy. Ben joined Cut Copy, Simon joined the Lost Valentinos, Tim moved to Tokyo to run a club night at Le Baron, make disco and eat loads of rice. But the topic of this post is Yama, he's been flat out with his producer/DJ alter ego "GLOVES".

I spent a large part of 2007 tour managing Damn Arms (we did laps of Australia with Cut Copy, Klaxons, Midnight Juggernauts and loads more). We all got to know each other quite well and wound up being pretty physically and mentally wrecked by pretty much 6 months of non-stop partying together. So whenever I get to see any of them I get pretty excited. This weekend, Yama is coming down to Adelaide to DJ and celebrate the release of his single "PYX" on Bang Gang 12 inches.

Make sure you get to see him play and ask him about the time we left Simon asleep on a plane cos he smelt like booze so bad.
