Just looking at your 'holy lol' lineup there Phier, I recognise some names on it. There's a local French run club here in Hanoi has been doing some cool stuff in the last year, in a city with notoriously oppressive nightlife restrictions. Saw Answer Code Request there a few months ago. Next week there's a 24 hour session for their gay night's first anniversary. Boris, Chrissy and Roy Perez playing with some local DJ's. Telephones there next week. A lad called Skatebard played there for their first birthday a while back, was great.

They also started Equation festival near Hanoi in April which had a fantastic lineup (sounded fantastic, only names I knew were Telephones and Giegling, my techno-head mates told me the lineup was solid), should be bigger and better next year. The setting is unbelieveable, on a lake in the jungle an hour outside of Hanoi. Was at another more established, Body and soul-esque festival there last weekend, it's tons of fun and a pretty surreal place.

Apart from that, the only Western music you get in this city is... Tiesto playing in a couple of weeks. The students I teach have never heard of rock music, it's all the worst sort of EDM and K-Pop for them. And it's such a homogeneous culture with such strict social norms that everyone just wants to listen to what's cool so they can fit in i.e. the Vietnamese top 10, which is just awful tripe. I miss music and gigs :(

Only just realised you're in Hanoi! A few of my mates moved over there this year and I think they're playing music in the city in the form of improv nights. I'll ask them what they're getting up to.

Speaking of beautiful festivals. I meet some campmates from nowhere festival (<3) over the weekend, they told me about this. I also hope to get some of them together for Fusion, but my list of must-do's is getting unwieldy now that I'm "woke" to burns.

He is a loathsome prick isn't he.

As for that statement he published last night, I was genuinely taken aback at the lack of judgement on display there.

Not just one part of it either; the whole thing was fucking bizarre.

It's an early Christmas miracle tbh.

I tweeted about him a while ago and he replied to me pretty quickly. Prick must search himself on a regular basis
