Despite my protestations from SXSW, I have endeavoured to do another photo blog.

So, with three days to catch up, regroup and prepare, I am gearing up to head to Liverpool Sound City on Thursday.

It’s a bit like having a 2 centre holiday – one week on the beach and one week safari – both equally great.

I am speaking on a panel on Friday – you can find me here – You Spin Me Right Round – The Create Success Panel: in association with Generator Friday 20th, 14:10 – 14:55, Grace Room Two at the main conference hotel - Hilton Liverpool Hotel, 3 Thomas Steers Way, Liverpool, L1 8LW

I’ll also be heading for the Clash Magazine party keen to see FM favourites Cold in Berlin and Young Knives who I can’t wait to see – last gig I caught them at was yonks ago at Heaven.
