Spooky as it may seem I had yet more great new tunes in the show…..and this week an odd tune from a guy called Goyte; his from Belgium and lives in Australia. and has a single called “Somebody I used to know” – It is nice when good songs hunt you down and not vice versa.
Twofers today was a nod towards the reforming Stone Roses, who are planning some hot gigs for 2012. So we played ‘Fools Gold’ and ‘I want to be adored’ .
