Do not judge a man by the company he keepeth'.....


I was allowed to enter the circle of trust and like a celeb hungry vampire I want more...

The night started with a rainy and miserable night in Camden Town. The Libertines were playing Kentish Town Forum and after 3 days haven't managed to get tickets... Went to the Hawley Arms as maybe there had been a whisper of a after show party... In the Hawley we already spot Amy Winehouse and Graham Coxon as well as a newly "haired" Gail Porter. After many generous glasses of Jameson's I start to wander and end up chatting with Adam Green (google the man)... nice guy with a new york baritone and air of entitlement as well as his good friend and uber drummer par excellence Chris Egan who with a very suspect alcohol free becks was cool and the ring leader of the nights madness. Drew from Babyshambles is there also but assures us that he doesn't think there is any party here tonight but invites us to another party in Soho if we can make it...well its only work tomorrow..can always pull a sickie..

A black cab ride to Soho where we meet Alex Turner, Miles Kane,Kele from Bloc Party, Blaine from Mystery Jets, The Klaxons and some various scattered indie NME wet dream types....just keep cool and act like its a normal Wednesday night, that was the plan... They say never meet your heroes as you'll just be disappointed.. I think this should be changed to Never Meet your heroes as in a drunken state you'll probably just come across like a drunken prick. I mean does Miles Kane really want to know that I tried to get my hair like his...probably not... Did Adam Green really need questioning about whether he'd actually met Jessica Simpson (in regards to his song "Jessica" about her)..no..(he actually has never met her)...Though hopefully it wasn't that bad as everyone was in the same state as me... Met an old mate there from a few years ago so still have a foot back into wonderland should I ever have the balls to roll the dice again rather than stick to cheering from the sidelines.... and remember if your names not down...you'll still probably get in if your wearing skinnies....
