Tuesday 10 December 2013


The month started with the last BUG shows to be hosted by Adam for a little while. We await news of what he's finding to fill his time now that he doesn't have to trawl through endless YouTube comments however, a tweeted question about an eggcorn gave rise to a ripple of excitement in my silly noggin.

Adam recorded an episode of Danny Baker's BBC4 show. You can find more details here, such as they are.

Joe finally detached himself from the Star Trek III, apparently.

There are other waffle links from September, October and November.

That'll be it unless I feel moved to do a round-up of the year in a couple of weeks but there are a couple of bits of trivia:

Frankie Boyle discovered Taffin and the ICA actually screened it theatrically. I'd love to know what the audience count was for that one. 


Saturday 30 November 2013


Not for the want of trying but I failed to grow a substantial moustache this month and shall hasten to return all sponsership monies received post haste.

Adam hosted the YouTube Awards from Abbey Road. The whole evening was live-streamed and there's plenty of evidence at the AdamAndJoe.com fansite.

Film4 finally scheduled Attack the Block to air on the night the action was set (bonfire night). I'm still waiting for a theatrical venue to have to guts and foresight to do the same.

Attack the Block's scorer, Steven Price has made a beautiful, award worthy job for the Gravity soundtrack (and also The World's End, out on DVD & Blu-ray NOW!).

Gemma Davison met Adam and Cyriak at the Bradford Animation Festival.

There was a lot of chatter this month about Cornballs being cajouled into directing Star Trek III, having turned it down in May. Mr Pegg's word is in the film here and JJ Abrams approves of the notion but Joe's still not attached.

Way too many people moaned about Jack Whitehall pinching Adam's Baaaddad idea. The first ep was fun. It has it's moments and it's more than fifteen years since Nigel first made his appearance on the Adam and Joe Show. I think we're ready to survive a different format by now with out a twissy-fit. Who watches BBC3 anyway? (I do).

Adam did the voice on the trailer for next year's Loco Comedy Film Festival.

Yet another tea time quiz show featured Adam and Joe in one of their questions so I gathered a few together here.

Adam had sushi with Black Francis.

He also hosted the British Arrows (advertising industry award show).

The month wound down with Adam presenting the first of three BUG 40s at the BFI.

His special guest was the adorable Ian Pons Jewell . A young man called Steve Quinn was in the audience. Imagine how he must have felt when this popped up.

These were the last BUGs he'll preside over for a while as he's taking a break to concentrate on some stuff "of his own", as it were. I'm hoping a Christmas adblogpost might reveal a few more details but he's certainly worked very hard this year. He insists (well, mentioned in a tweet to Roo) that he won't be away for long.

Trivia: I could be wrong but I don't think Adam donned his lovely spectacles at this BUG which makes me wonder if he's been messing with lasers or sutin.

Thursday 31 October 2013


Adam kicked off the month with four gigs for "Comedy Central Live" in Stockholm and Gottenburg but there was precious little evidence of it.

Joe shunted over to L.A. for who knows how long.

@Monastico exhibited her felted artwork of Adam and Joe.

Adam got jiggy with the Brighton audience.

Edgar & Joe were tightening up the Ant-man script and there were casting rumours of Paul Rudd and Joseph Gordon Levett. On the 24th, Edgar tweeted a picture of Joe. Thedgar.

Sarah Anne blogged about Adam's first live show in Glasgow and then BUG went to Bergen.

Ian Greaves found this very early sound file featuring Adam with Tracey MacLeod in 2000.

At the end of the month, Lou Reed passed away a tad too soon but after a rockin' good life so thoughts turned to the sexy rock tortoise.

Monday 30 September 2013

Try to remember that kind of September

September started with this from Irv.

The ad with Adam's Friends jingle jongle took another season of airings.

Buzzfeed brought us twenty two reasons to love Adam Buxton, which was a master feat of restraint.

This amused me:

Adam continued to take his sell-out Edinburgh show, Kernel Panic across the country and a slew of interviews followed him from The British Comedy Guide, Emma McAlpine for Spoonfed & Sonya Barber for Time Out with more links below after his Union Chapel gig.

Jarvis Cocker played Joe's Meatballs song on his Sunday Service and Joe resigned his post from the role of directing Royden Lepp's Rust.

Joe gave a maserclass at the National Film and Television School which was chaired by the lovely and talented Corin Hardy. Even Screen International covered it. Corin blogged about hat theft.

Kernel Panic found it's way to the beautiful Union Chapel. Steve Bennett  reviewed it for Chortle and Joe was spotted in the audience/bar.  This gig also caught the attention of Evening Standard's Bruce Dessau and more people tweeted pictures.

Despite the fact that Hot Fuzz airs almost every other day, it still trends on Twitter.

On the 21st of the month, Attack the Block's Alex Esmail chatted to Framed Focus Screen Talkers about his role.

And finally, apropos of nothing much, watch this.

Proper Summer

If you're not being paid to blog, you'd be completely nutzoid to spend time bent over one when there's proper summer-style weather to enjoy. I'll grant you that it's a bit overcast today but this has been my stance on the virtual lack of blogg-edness.

In my defense, I did stir myself for a couple of hastily barked missives on my nugget blog but it's a far cry from a regular catch-up about Adam and Joe.

All this preamble is an apology for the stodgy pudding which must surely follow as I catch up from March. Eat until you're full and leave the rest in a tidy lump at the side.

In the interests of transparency, I might as well say most of this will be about Adam because Joe is.......he just is (but only just). I did hear some reports that he was making a model of Le Centre Pompidou out of les stick du lolly but they're thus far unfounded.

As well as continuing his Best of BUG touring & regular dates at the BFI and Norwich Playhouse, Adam has been expanding his reach by developing his own stand-up show, wearing even more body hair than nature gave him in support of Kevin Eldon's tv show and also interviewing terrifying actors.

Since my last proper update, Adam has added the full episodes of his BUG TV show to his YouTube Channel. Several people have helpfully made playlists for all eight eps. Here is Dominic's link. For reasons beyond his control, some episodes are too copyright-laden to be viewed on anything sexier than a laptop. You'll just have to make some time when you get home.

Joe has kept out of the public eye but has been spotted on a couple of red-carpets and made two public appearances just last week. Imagine!

It has now occurred to me to invoke the full might of simple internet technology and divide this huge catch-up into more manageable nuggets by pretending that I posted them at monthly intervals. I know I'll not fool any regulars but just think how much it'll impress a newbie.

So if you're really interested, scroll down to the April update and read forward from there.

Other things that happened this summer was that many, many people sent Adam tweetpics of a Coca Cola bottle with "Stephen" on it and twice that number told him, and continue to tell him that Taffin is on Netflix. What a joyous season it has been.

Friday 16 August 2013


Adam took Kernel Panic to Edinburgh where it pretty much sold out (to the extent that the naughty venue owners sold seats with a view so restricted, it wasn't actually a view, much to Adam's great dismay, frustration and personal distress). An act wishing to perform at The Fringe have their venue allocated to them without choice and it would seem, with scant consideration to the format in which it will be presented.

Southerners have a chance to see this show at The Union Chapel in September and he's also taking it to Belfast in one of the Irish parts of the country, then to Brighton in October. Adam is keen that anyone attending should read this notice on his blog.

He's still taking BUG all around the country and over the last few months has reprised his Ninja Tunes, Warp Records and Fat Boy Slim specials.  He's even done a couple of seminars which were so well received, I did a little green pop of envy. He made a live jingle jongle, for goodness sake.

While Adam was in Edinburgh, he did a couple of lovely podcasts.

Here's James Walker's interview.

then Peacock and Gamble did one too. Click on 8th August link here.

Simon Pegg cranked up the Ant-Man rumour mill for a bit of a laugh.

The Film4 Summer Screen series included The Great Teen Debate in it's Behind the Screen talks. Joe Cornish sat on the panel to discuss favourite moments.

Joe also attended the Shuffle Film Festival, introducing two screenings of Attack the Block and giving a short Q and A.  Watch Danny Boyle talking about the festival below and read more about the festival here.

If you're really interested, the event list I try to keep can be scrolled back into the past, so you can see what you've missed.

You may chose to believe this is totally unrelated, but Steven Price's score for  Edgar Wright & Simon Pegg's "The World's End" is available in tangible form.  Edgar blogged details here. He also composed the music for Joe's "Attack the Block".

Me Books continue to pump away at Adam's vocal chords. I believe The Brave Beast is a new addition.

Joe Cornish Introduces Attack the Block this Wednesday

I know. I know. You don't get the tiniest whiff of his long shanks for months and then he pops up twice in one week. 

If you missed the chance to catch Joe's contribution to Ultra Culture's Great Teen Movie Debate on Saturday you can take solace in another couple of opportunities on Wednesday. You'll have to make the effort to get all the way to E3 but it'll be worth it. It's super easy on the buses and tube.

Danny Boyle has curated the Shuffle Festival. That's a clever word meaning he did the choosing and he chose Attack the Block as one of a very diverse selection of films.

They're showing them in and around the disused psychiatric hospital at St Clement's in Mile End Road, E3 4LH.

The full programme is here and you're going to kick yourself when you see what you've missed already.

This Wednesday, 14th August 2013, Attack the Block will be shown indoors at 7:00pm for the weather-phobes. If you've got a laissez-faire attitude and your plastic, pocket poncho handy, you could opt for the 8:30pm outdoor screening. Joe will introduce both of them.

There's an intrepid sense of make-do-and-mend about St Clement's. The indoor screening will have church hall style chairs, bean bags and benches. They'll be a few of those outdoors too plus a couple of pews and lots of lovely red deck chairs, so you can pretend you're Rhys Ifans while you're watching.

If you were to pitch up earlier, you could check out the variety of food and drink. There are performance pieces and video installations in one of the derelict buildings. I recommend the work of Susan Aldworth who's exhibiting two films that feel like a blend of early David Wilson & early Cyriak with a touch of The Drowned Man thrown in.

Danny Boyle really loved Joe's film.

There's a map of the area here. It's tiny but BIG.

I'm not sure what will be happening during the week but today there were bands, happy brains, bubbles & bingo.......but not just any bingo....it was 'Car Boot Disco Bingo' -  a description which could not be more efficient.

I realise it sounds awful but it's very popular and everyone taking part looked fit to burst with joy.

Keep your eyes open because apart from spotting a Joe Cornish
........you might also notice an amenable Danny Boyle.

If you're thinking 'cor, that looks really leafy and green', 
there are even patches of wild flowers.

......and if you didn't believe me, here are Bubbles, a Brain plan of happy thoughts and a Band fronted by Lionel.

 You might also find a princess on a Bike........

....some Boots.....(well, mainly shoes)

.....and a mind Boggling maze of memories and wood.

.....and sorry....I'll do a proper blog update soonish. (I may not)

Wednesday 31 July 2013

Jewelry - Julyery - whatever

There was great excitement towards the end of June when Jonny Greenwood tweeted a picture of Adam in a field of rape or mustard or sutin, heralding the news that Adam would contribute to the first of three programmes Colin was doing in Jarvis's 6Music slot.

Adam put the show on his Soundcloud in two parts. It's a joyful bit of ear nice.

There's some more about Here 2013....um....here and a review of BUG from Bristol.

Time Out reckon Adam chose his top five videos for them but I can only see one there.

Sally Grosart made this wonderful poster for Adam's BUG tour.

Popcorn Taxi have posted a transcript of the telephone Q and A Joe Cornish did with them a couple of years ago for Attack the Block. Even after all this time, people are still podding about the film.

I stumbled across this pleasing little nubbin again and I thought I'd share it.

This defies everything that is sensible.

but that's not all this guy does

You know Mike Shinks, the best that Fran can get? Well, Fran approved of Mike enough to make a lovely son and here he is with Adam (photographed at the recent Manchester BUG shows). While I'm about it, look at a gorgeous snap taken at Latitude.

Finally, here are some familiar lyrics but the fun is in the circular translations and wonky Japanese spelling.

Sunday 30 June 2013

Junery Buffoonery

Once again, I'm retro-posting this in August but fooling everyone that I did it in June.

Total Film posted a lovely picture of Joe Cornish attending the World War Z premiere (as did Tanya). Adam was refused an invite due to the CK business*.

Theo Bosenquet has written a piece about Luke Treadaway (Brewis from Attack the Block) and the charity event he organised to help Autism charities. It was a really cool evening with some fantastic contributors.

Franz Drameh from Attack the Block was named as one of Screen International's 2013 UK Stars of Tomorrow.

Tim Butcher talked to Adam in a pod, like a pea.

Somebody :rolleyes: has put Adam's section of Celebrity Mastermind on YouTube.

Anthony Rubio has tatooed up his arm ATB-style!

Adam has finally put their Women's Hour radio play on his Soundcloud.

The PayPal Etail Awards invited Adam to present on the gong night.

Ben Steers took a sneaky picture of Adam at Here2013 as he composed a jingle "Wednesday Shag", before his very eyes.  It's Nice That have more pictures here.

You can check back on all the Buxty gigs you missed over at Hobbsy's fansite.

* I made that up.

Friday 31 May 2013

Mayish Update

Once again, I wrote this in August but I reserve the right to be as timey wimey as I ruddy, well please.

Adam popped up in The Skinny this month and there are some pictures from Belfast in this gallery. The Observer carried an interview, the Manchester Evening News had this, The List this and Marielle Osmont wrote this.

Finally in the review department, longtime fan, Sean Murricane not only wrote a lovely blog but got a personal thank you from Adam.

Ealing council announced a comedy festival in Walpole Park and Adam's doing a Big Tent version of BUG there with the help of the lovely people at Nomad Cinema.

Some of the Best of BUGs around the country have been daubing the hands of visitors with Adam's face.

The Prince Charles Cinema double billed Attack the Block with Critters for a couple of evenings in May.

There was a tiny bit more mention of Ant-Man (for which Joe has penned the script with Edgar Wright) in a Marvel update.

At the end of the month, Adam was asked to host a discussion at the Regent Street Applestore with Michael Shannon as he was in town to promote The Iceman.

As with everything he does, Adam immersed himself into thorough research and worked hard to present his own brand of interview. He even made some pictures which, for one reason and another, didn't see the light of day until he showed them to a small crowd at his early Kernel Panic previews.

Adam had the sense that the interview wasn't going well. You'll find it on iTunes in Zodcast form, so you can decide but there were several people who took the time to tweet their delight.

You may remember that back in November, Adam introduced The Man Who Fell To Earth as his Screen Epiphany at the BFI. Finally, in May a small clip of the introduction was put on the website.

Someone's put a load of stüffe on the internet.

Tuesday 30 April 2013

Aprilish Update

As I'm writing this in August (you'll have to read here to find out why) the Bowie Is exhibition has been and gone from these shores but Adam's 6Music Bowie Special aired in April and was a wonderful treat, soon followed by a BUG Special during the Bowie Weekend held at the V and A.  Those lucky few who marched up to demand free entrance were treated to over an hour of delicious waffle from Adam on his most beloved topic including two beautifully rendered video versions of the imagined conversations first aired on 6Music.

Intimate 6Music friend, Chris Assault with a Deadly Weapon Saltyman Salt made a Lego version of Bowie's re-inventing discussion with Angie and The Layzell Brothers visually realised the exchange between Bowie, Visconti and Eno. These videos will not be available online until the current format of Kernel Panic has ended as they're best viewed up big.

Sally Grosart has also made a Bowie Paper Person.

Adam's performances at the regular BUG shows are so thoroughly enjoyed but by their nature, require a structure based primarily upon showing the recent output of talented music director types from far and wide.  By building material for his own show, Adam can lark around like a ridiculous ponce, showing the things he really enjoys and inserting more of his own work, in the tireless manner that he brings to anything to which he contributes.  The result of this is Kernel Panic.

This new strand to his repertoire is being managed and marketed by the delicious people at The Invisible Dot and as an aside, I cannot recommend their venue(s) more highly. The tiny room in King's Cross is particularly good fun in the hot weather - if your idea of fun is being deprived of oxygen and melting into a pool of sweat.  It's all worth it though. This Spring and early Summer we have been spoiled by the chance to see warm-up performances from some of the UK's most celebrated comedians, including Adam's Work In Progress. 

Adam has also joined Peter Serafinowicz to add his voice to Lego City Undercover, if you have a game machine. Did I mention that last month at all?

Adam popped up in a couple of episodes of It's Kevin. Look at the clip, why don't you?

Michael Towers made this 1" homage to the Fist In Chips waffle.

This rather lovely tweet popped up in April too.

It's always fun when someone takes a snap of Adam's desktop folder.

It's not quite all about Adam this month.

Luke Treadaway, who played Brewis in Attack the Block, deservedly won this year's Best Actor Olivier Award for his portrayal of Christopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.

Elizabeth Donnelly reminisces about the last time Wright, Pegg and Frost hit the roads of Americas (with Joe too).

Edgar Wright held and introduced his Screen Epiphany at the BFI, a clip of which is here. His buddy and sometime writing partner, J M Cornish folded his long shanks into a chair at the NFT1 to watch too.

Speaking of Ant-Man (as I was, obliquely), you can read a Marvel-based update here.

Tyler Stout has made some wonderful limited edition posters for Attack the Block.

Saturday 23 March 2013

'Tis the season of chocs and mallow bunny bits

I had a packet of choccie raisins a minute ago but I can't find them now.

Apart from that last post, there's been precious little real information on here since New Year's Eve so my aim is to remedy that. This'll be long and you won't read it all.

Whilst reminding everyone about the imminent 6Music Easter Week Bowie Love-in featuring a couple of hours with Adam Buxton on Easter Sunday, I can finally share a link to the on-stage interview that preceded Adam's Bowie-Based introduction to his Screen Epiphany at the BFI last year. Sadly, they are no longer hosting these films at their dedicated microsite and don't support embedding so there's no sexier way of linking this other than hotting up his page and leaving you to navigate from there.

The edit makes it seem as though the interviewer tried to steal the show but the actual introduction seemed more balanced at the time. It's a pity they don't include any of the other hoopla Adam gave us but if you've been to a BUG recently, you'll have an idea. It wuz laughful with fond dizrespectocitization.

Sky Atlantic have been repeating BUG and Adam has put the first episode on his YT Channel if you're overseas, too lazy or too self-righteous to have watched it by more devious means.

It would seem those Sky fools do not intend to commission a second series. Listen (and watch) what Adam has to say about that here (recorded at the Norwich Playhouse earlier this month). This is an ideal opportunity for BBC2 to swoop in and take BUG over, you'd think.

Adam is featuring in Kevin Eldon's new Sunday evening show "It's Kevin" at the moment. I say featuring - he's in at least one sketch. Lovely Sally Grosart has made a Paper Person of his character.

Take a little break from reading and watch a Famous Guy clip from Edinburgh there.

After one of Adam's radio shows with Edith, a lot of people were asking about the source of that insanely wonky boooozum inflection piece. It's here.

Robyn Hitchcock had a birthday gig in Shoreditch. Not only was Adam there, he joined the crowd on stage.

There were tweeted pictures from Adam's Union Chapel gig although this one looks like The Horne Section.

I don't want to make this post too lumpy with video links but Adam uploaded a higher res version of his Popepropriation video to coincide with the recent Italian smoking party.

Emma Gutteridge shared some lovely photographs of Adam at the DiscoShed DJing gig.

Tim made this Skyfall/Buxton mash to delight your ears and eyes.

In the last couple of months, Adam chose Soundcloud to put some of his beautiful nuggets that a) don't have YouTubery to go with or b) are so good, they need to be downloadable for mp3 playerage. To single one of them out would be wrong but I was never going to be allowed into the kingdom of right.

You can read about and listen to Adam's Red Nose Day activities here at the new home of my nugget blog. The old nugget blog will be pulled at the end of April. I transferred the words but the sound may take a while longer to link up, although they are all online at Archive.org.

The Grimshaw man also showed Adam's Sushi Song during his late night Red Nose Day show on BBC1.

Adam's diary continues to fill and I've linked my silly list up at the top of this blog. Do check to see if BUG is coming to your town. As well as London's regular shows next week, there are dates for places like Bradford, Sheffield, Brummingshire, Belfast, Leicester and even Lincoln in the mix now. He's taking his Fat Boy Slim show to Brighton and doing a Warp Records Special in London.

You know, the BUG team are always open to venue suggestions. If your town has a cool place with projection facilities, a good sound system and preferably a nice bar, drop them a line.

Adam's Leicester Square Best of BUG was a sensational evening with Buxty prancing around the stage in his sexy new specs to the delight of many BUG virgins. It's lovely watching newbies. They can't quite believe what they're seeing and finally realise how uncomfortable endless laughter can be.

He did a little Popropriation section and by way of explanation & example to BUG virgins, he cited the Gillette jingle and it's use by Mike Shinks whenever his wife Fran doubts his worthiness. It gave me a little nostalgia wobble.
♫ Mike Shinks!  The Best that Fran could Ge-e-et ♫

Adam showed one of Peter Serafinowicz's Hot Chip videos despite the blighter not turning up for the japery. That reminds me, Adam and Peter have contributed their voice skills to the new Nintendo Lego game. While I'm talking about Lego, I have to share a shot of silent film boffin, Mr Hope Lies' wonderful Lego Cinema. He'll also be reporting from BUG at Docfest and BIFF with any luck.

Fortunately, Adam's proper guest, Edgar Wright did turn up and his showing of some Ant-Man test footage caused a little Disney Net Ripple while most of us were in bed. Somebody filmed it from the audience and put it on YouTube but it was swiftly removed. I shudder to think how poor the quality would have been. The sad thing is, it was probably uploaded by a huge fan on Edgar's who didn't understand why it was a bad thing to do. It really makes you wonder......but at least it gave the blogs plenty to witter about for a few seconds.

The only really new sniff of Ant-Man recently has been this from January. Marvel's Ant-Man Facebook page is currently still Stark infested from last October. The release date is slated for November 2015 which is six months after the next Avengers film.

Talk of Ant-Man finally takes proceedings to Joe by association.

There's virtually no public news about Snow Crash or Rust. I guess both are still noodling about with scripts. This is understandable. I mean, Snow Crash is too long to make into a film, apparently.

The hard copy of Sci-Fi mag had this page about Rust but I've yet to read it. Lovely Royden was on the Archaia stand at the ECCC chatting about the various volumes of Rust. There was a little mention about the film from Royden at a Livestream event a while ago too.

If I've missed any other news about either of these films, please let me know.

There have been some Attack the Block screenings lately. Being from the future and altogether topsy-turvey, Melbourne had a Rooftop Cinema screening. In Camberwell, it was free and followed by a Q and A with Leeon Jones. In Hornsey it was only a quid but unfortunately they have a gzillion lumins light that shines directly downwards about a foot in front of the projector beam, rendering the picture that eventually arrives on the screen almost invisible.

Tyler Stout includes Attack the Block in his range of artwork which he sells in limited edition.

If I could justify the price of yet another copy of Attack the Block, I'd go for the Japanese version as it has these little darlings stuffed in the packaging.

Somebody made this amusing bit of art and tagged it Attack the Block.

The school that Attack the Block's John Boyega went to are rightly proud of him. Simon 'Biggz' Howard helped to launch Becoming Brixton in January. Jodie Whittaker is currently giving a beautiful performance in ITV's Monday night series 'Broadchurch' and Luke Treadaway has transferred his heartbreaking portrayal of Christopher in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time to the West End. Nick Frost has finished pick-ups for Cuban Fury and has now taken the lead in Mr Sloane for Big Talk.

The poor cloud hair lady was made to suffer another outing with Joe's ethereal song in January.

Such is the scarcity of Cornballs news, all I can report is that he had fish and chips in Balham on 11th March, unless of course, it was Nicholas Rowe......or that sport ball man.... Anyhoo, it makes a change from dining at Moro.

On 1st February, 6Music spent the day running through a listener-voted top 100 tunes and it warmed my cockles to discover that giggly Jude (an Adam and Joe producer of yesteryear) was listening all the way over in American Land.

During the last couple of weeks I've heard Mark Radcliffe (or was it Stuart) and Lovely Lettuce Laverne struggle with the pronunciation of Wymondham which gives me a good excuse to link a beloved nugget.

Someone tweeted a Bronholme based hoodie fashion statement.

Adam and Joe's 6Music podcast still gets included in the iTunes 'What's Hot' section but their BBC Blog is sadly in line for mothballing*.

On Valentine's Day Adam gave us the gift of song and a couple of 6Music listeners celebrated their Adam and Joe based union.

People are still telling Adam he looks like Mandy Patinkin, Eric Cantona and other Random Bearded Men. When will this madness end? He's cleverly adopted a 'with glasses' look that should fool them for a while.

You know Stephen! right? Of course you do. Well he's done a book you can get for fewp'nce on your Kindling thingling or fill your hands with treespew. Just Reading! Surely Big Talk will option the film rights for this?

Tom Haigh unearthed and upshot some archive footage from a time when Edgar Wright was legitimately small and huggable. They were duly blogged here and here.

Other random things I feel like telling you is that David Byrne's Roundhouse show is selling fast.  Both Basement Jaxx and Goldfrapp at Somerset House sold out ages ago but astonishingly, you can still grab tickets for Richard Hawley which is a dreamy thing to do of a Summer's evening. You can also see Colin 'Black' Vearne at the Bush Hall for not much cash.

Finally, apropos of nothing at all, I'd like to pimp my two favourite t-shirt stores: DBT and Archane.

*The 'more information' link at the Adam and Joe 6Music blog implies that the blog will be around for a while longer. I think it would cause more harm if they removed it.

When do you delete pages from bbc.co.uk?

In general our policy is only to remove pages where the information provided has become so outdated that it may lead to actual harm or damage.

Easter Bowie Egg Hunt

Posts on this blog are almost as rare as news of Joe Cornish but here's a stab at a couple of things that might tickle your attention sensors.

David Bowie's new album has caused such jiggidy in the love loins that any/every establishment wants to flaunt their joy and BBC 6Music is joining the fun, albeit deferring the saturation until Easter Week.  There are countless nuggets to enjoy from everyone in the best radio family ever saved by it's listeners.

Adam's show will air for two hours from 4pm on Easter Sunday and will include his favourite interviews. You can read more here.

Radio4 have made their full, uncut 2002 Front Row interview available here.

Now, see here.....if something popped up that meant Zavid would allow Adam and Joe to pop over the pond to interview him, I would happily release Adam from any of his other commitments. If it meant I didn't see Adam talk to Edgar Wright in his Best of BUG Special at the enormous Odeon Leicester Square, I wouldn't mind.  Nothing should be allowed to stand in the way of them realising a dream like that.

Adam really does have a good schedule for the coming months. He's bouncing around the country like Psy on an ego trip.  Check the Adam and Joe fansite for the latest dates and you can even try Adam's own calendar um... feature.  None of these resources are exhaustive and if you have any gig info, I know the fansite forum would be grateful to know.....or you could sent me a little Tweet.

I used to keep a little blog with nuggets of sound and other short missives. That blog was run on Posterous which was bought out by Twitter and they will be pulling the plug on it at the end of April. This means that the hundreds of silly sound nuggets I've posted there will evaporate. Ruddy miserable doesn't quite cover it. 

I've moved all the wordy bits of the posts here but it will take some time for me to put all the sound back. I've re-upped a large chunk of them but I have to go to each individual post to insert the new link for them all.

In other news:
Adam is looking even sexier and deceptively bookish in his new spectacles.
Joe is still breathing and poncing around with film types.
