Asian Dub Foundation @ Razzmatazz, BCN

Went to see Asian Dub Foundation for the first time in years, at Razzmatazz on Tuesday night - they have really become an incredibly powerful band. Public Enemy, The Clash all sprang to mind - not neccessarily because of the music style, but the sheer power, presence & energy and the political stance of course - we desperately need more bands like this. Anyway managed to squeeze my way into the moshpit and shoot a bunch of photos, which you'll find at www.rogercowell.net , and here's a couple to give you a taster:

New Apartment in Barcelona

Some good news, today I just put down a deposit on a new flat in Barcelona, in a barrio named Clot. Just a little out of the centre of town but still only 4 metro stops from Placa Catalunya, it is pretty damn good. Exactly the kind of place I was looking for and after only seeing three places thats a bit of a result. It's right up on the roof of a really old building, about four stories up, so plenty of very steep stairs to climb, the main room is a pretty big 50m2 and the roof terrace about another 20m2. Lots of sunlight, and not that noisy down in the street, so I'm looking forward to moving in on 1st June. Not looking forward to carrying boxes of vinyl up all those steep stairs though, so volunteers very welcome... Only one problem for visitors - there is no solid wall between my bedroom area and the rest of the room, so overnighters will be more than able to appreciate my sweet and dulcet tones throughout the night, in all their glory. Here's some quick piccies:

20.000 Leguas De Viaje Submarino

Ok, so i figured I've been really slack for weeks in trying to learn any new Spanish, which is a bit crazy, seeing as I arrived here and then immediately stopped. So today I took the bull by the horns and bought my first novel in Spanish - but I have cheated a bit, because I have already read it at least three times already. Jules Vernes awesome "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" that is - a cursory glance through gives me the impression that I'll only have to look up three words out of four. Phew!
