Aujourd'hui Est Mon Anniversaire!

Excellent time last night at CCL. Sudden Infant ripped it up but good, and we dug deep into Lille's well-sodden nightsoil. The attendees seemed to know our material as well, which always makes the laudanum backwash a helluva lot sweeter... We later joined forces for the first of our collaborative mini-sets, assaying "Three Fingers" from The Cortege... Our host, Julien, was absurdly gracious, and the wine flowed well in the morning. Except I'd already passed out hours before. Fucking jet-lag...

Awoke this morning to find myself a year older... Holy crap! I'm 502!

Images from today's ramble through Lille follow.

More ASAP,

Tom

(Our driver and security agent par excellence, Dennis. This Kortrijk-bred kickboxer and Belgian hip-hop fanatic is slowly emerging from his shell. Here, he cracks a first, tentative smile, accompanied by a tasteful fuck-you...)




(Do the French understand interior design or what? The warming walls of the CCL invite relaxing, thought-provoking SCREAMS OF HORROR. Of course, we like.)



(Bloody laptop musicians!)



(Sudden Infant kicks the proceedings into high gear!)
