Botox & boybands...

Greetings all...

Will try to make this a quick one, got heaps to do today - Hayley's taking me to the gym in a bit for some hardcore personal trainy bizniz. We've started going to gym in Windsor now instead of Maidenhead, its rumoured Anna Friel frequents it... Still remember her being lesbian in Brookside and burying her dad under the patio. Seen her at heathrow a few times since looking very glamourous with lots of gucci/vuitton bags. Wonder if Sinbad has that many ;-) Anyway, I'll be sure to fill you in if we end up in a press-up competition...

Am gearing up for the biggest gig of my life this weekend, Pirate Sation 7 in St. Petersburg. They say there will be about 40,000 peeps there. I've got killer peak set time too. Still debating what to wear though. My actual Pirate outfit might be a bit too piratey for the pirate station. Today & tomorrow will definitely be some serious studio time days trying to get some specials together - although, I have already got some serrrrrious killers ready to go - just always end up pressuring myself to permier some new John B productions in these sorts of situations. The new tracks I've done recently will be PERFECT though - I think my trancier stuff will destroy it in there huRRAH!

Had a great gig last weekend, in Luzern - played a big dnb party first, then went back to the hotel for a quick chill - and Alan Partridge stylee deeeeep bath - then out to the afterparty to play some technoelectro stuff. I'm not normally a fan of afterparties to be honest - if you haven't already had a great time by 6am I wonder if you ever will - BUT this really was somthing special - the vibe continued over from one club straight to the next - went from a warehouse type of space to a posh looking restaurant/cabaret bar feel - the decks set up on top of a grand piano, velvety curtains everywhere and lots of mirrors and paintings on the walls with gold frames and candlestick holders etc. And me with my blade runner make up and some badass deep techno, minimal and general robopunk beastliness. Wish we'd recorded it!

MC Fava & his Mrs took some cool photos so I've uploaded them all to my Flickr, facebook and myspace, as usual - and there's also a few off my iPhone up on my .mac web gallery page. That hotel was lovely - best this year - massive bath, I actually had 3 baths in it during the 1 night stay - hah! Breakfast we pretty surreal when we got back too - my makeup had completely run all over my face it looked like I was a commando - and everyone pretty tipsy and helping ourselves to all the smoked salmon and posh breakfast morsels. Mmmm.

Oh, last night deserves a mention too - Adam F linked us up with an invite to an opening party for a new Persian Restaurant in Knightsbridge called Uutopia. Hayley got to wear her vintage cocktail dress and I styled it out in my Dinner Jacket and superduper Chanel brooch. A posh French lady tried to touch it but I was all 'NON C'EST TREST MEGA CHANEL!'. WE made friends with lots of photographers and if we're lucky/unlucky might end up in OK! mag this week! Hahah! I think Hayley's mum will just die if we make it into OK! Hahaha! Met a few cool people in the music industry. And Abs from the boyband 5ive. Most random moment of the night was the raffle - which actually included tokens for FREE BOTOX. Seriously. That's pretty cool. There was a lady there who held the world record for most cosmetic procedures on one person - and she looked good too - not crazy cat-lady stylee at all. It must definitely be a case of getting a good surgion. Or just telling them to not make you look like a crazy cat-person. 'HELLO I WOULD LIKE THE FELINE LOOK MONSIEUR'.

OK here's some photos. See ya later!
