No Sir, No Talk of Attack the Block Here At All*

If that's all you've come for, you'll have to go here.

The day after the announcement that the 6Music Adam And Joe Show was to return for twelve weeks in April, Lauren interviewed them on her show. It might just be me but I felt they pretty much phoned it in. Apparently "Stephen!" started trending on Twitter during the interview.

Andrew Collins made an enjoyable blog entry when 6 Music were finally in a position to put an end (albeit a sad one) to all these months of uncertainty. Even Jonny Greenwood expressed his joy and Miranda Sawyer can't wait.

Adam made a couple of blog entries, encouraging a bit of listener participation so please do your duty.

Spoonfed spoke fondly of The Union Chapel where Adam played earlier this month.

If you're a regular reader of this blog (and why would you have enough time to do that?), you'll know that the techno-sprites put the screws on Adam's recent gig at the Tabernacle which prompted him to foolishly offer a free show to anyone who was cheeky enough to lie about feeling in some way short-changed. True to his word, he's doing a special show on 7th April at the BFI followed by a third BUG24 show in recognition of the oversubscription to the BUGs this week. These shows are also sold out because Adam is probably the most consistently largest revenue generator at the Poncey Benugo Cinema Complex.

These podchancers were obliged with a special jingle from Adam (at around 11 minutes in).

The most gravitas holding item in this post is my rather tardy discovery that the short film Adam starred in, Little Face has been on YouTube for months now. If you're a casting director and you have hitherto only considered Adam for in-your-face comedy, I hereby dubb you Idiothole Supremo. This man has range. Use it.

Joe joined Edgar in LA on the pretext of doing some Ant-man writing but he was just there for the latest New Beverly season and some utter silliness. As recently as 17th March, Joe was still there.

Here's some stuff that's not about Attack The Block from Jon Hamblin's interview with Joe and I'm very happy to say that in the not-too-distant future, I shall bring a little more Hamblin goodness onto this very blog with his generous permission.

Huge Adam and Joe fan and longtime member of Twitsquadron is holding an evening of entertainment on a barge on 26th April. Do go along.

Don't forget Ben Mercer is also playing on 30th March.

The wonderful Sally Grossart has made some Paper People for Nick and Simon's movie "Paul". I can't wait to see what she makes of the characters in Joe's little film.

Peeps are saying Holger Czukay's "Cool in the Pool" sounds like Adam and Joe.

Finally and totally music doesn't get much lovelier than this from Robin Pecknold.

*OK, so there are a couple of mentions.
