Spent most of the easter break sheltering from the wintery weather that usually pervades the Northeast of England in the middle of April. The highlight of the weekend was watching Autechre play on Saturday. Hunched behind a couple Powerbook G3s and a mass of wires and noise making machines, they play music that's difficult to describe. It's also very difficult to dance to, which I felt slightly confused the usual clubbing crowd there… one of the reasons I like their stuff so much. ::. I walk past this vicious public convenience everyday on my way to work… it's obviously not very happy in its job of serving the needs of desperate shoppers.
