The lovely Jay Watson (aka GUM, whose solo album was just recently released) after Pond’s gig at Koko in London last week; uber talented musician and super nice guy, who also gives great hugs.

It’s hard to say which is my favourite foreign venue but I’m going to choose the Bowery Ballroom in New York. Only because as we walked out onto stage I said into the mic, in a completely appropriate and justifiable way (if we were in Australia), ‘How ya going, c*nts?’ In Australia, c*nt is a word you say to a friend, a term of endearment if you will, and in no way meant as a sexist or derogatory comment (most of the time). Also, in Australia if someone is pissing you off, you call them ‘mate’. For example, if you were going to slog someone you’d say, ‘Look mate, you’re going to get one right in the eye in a minute.’ Backwards and crazy I know. So the audience at the Bowery were stunned silent. I, however, thought they didn’t hear me so I said it again. They had in fact heard me the first time.
