Alexander McQueen.


Today felt like a sad day. Even before I heard about poor old Alexander McQueen, such a sad thing, it always is when someone takes their own life.

I wore some pink shoes that he designed once and they were beautiful. I couldn’t walk in them.

It’s ok for it to be a sad day, anyways. Not every day can be a happy day. Just so long as we are mindful and accept it and make tomorrow a less sad day. Anyhoo, with the help and contributions of lots of my Twitter followers we made a playlist that reflects the tone of the day. And I got to hear some new songs. And accept a little more Snow Patrol into my life.

If you are not already doing so, follow me – @hattiewilliams and of course @telegraphswords !

So here is the playlist. Enjoy.

#26. Brighton show & DJ sets & that.

Hello, how is everyone? Havnt spoken in a while! We have been holed up in our very cold practice room (it isnt really, I wear shorts and a t shirt, Hattie, for some reason, wears 19 hoodies and 14 pairs of leggings, odd one) writing lots of new songs which im really really excited about. They are going to be demoed very very soon. Its all a bit different to the normal Telegraphs stuff you’ve heard, but in a very good way I think.

Brighton cool kids need to come to this:

Hands in the air if you're allergic to feathers.

Its gonna be great, plus we’ll be playing loads off new songs.

Also, DJ Mega Shark and DJ Giant Octupos (me and Gary Yazzle) are playing songs that dont match or make any sense next to each other at The Engine Room on the 25th of this month. Rodeo Death Burger are playing and that alone is enough to be there, they are amazing!

We’re also gonna be playing another DJ set sooner than that but dates are currently being sorted nowa. Ace burgers.

I’m hassling Ed our tech man for pictures he took at Thrice but he goes into hibernation when not on tour so I cant wake him up at the moment, rats.

Heres some pictures, exciting news coming soon for you Brighton lot, keep an ear out.


He lost at ping-pong.

A little bit drunk in Cardiff with my wife.



Also, Vheissu is by far Thrices best album, fact.
