We just had a great week in London. Here is a video of us playing ‘Buffalo’ on Later With Jools Holland. It was definitely a unique experience for the band. The BBC TV centre is a 60’s masterpiece. I was especially fond of the liberal use of the iconic BBC font.

We may have been a little nervous, but those feelings were quashed when our friend Rachel (formerly of Loop, now entrenched in the land of the beeb) sent us off to a Palestinian falafel joint that was out-of-this-world good. We seem to be fairly food obsessed as a band, and while I managed to wander over to Chris Martin and say hello I was too nervous to even look at Peter Gordon at his new cafe Kopapa. The turkish eggs are my new favourite thing, I need a recipe for them NOW!

The show in Highbury was also totally rad. All in all a marvelous trip to dear old blighty! xx Samuel

We visited the Guardian hq to perform and talk about ‘Buffalo’. It was pretty rad. We even got to meet Sarah Palin, who was there to answer for her sins.
