Hey Guys. Bit of a weird post coming up but hey ho.

I have a ticket to sell for the Glasgow date at Oran Mor on Thursday 6th October. The face price is £20, I'm looking to recoup whatever I can. It's currently on Ebay for £18 and open to offers. I'm not able to make the gig as I have left my home in Edinurgh and am the proceess of returning to Bristol. My 6 year relationship has failed, or rather my girlfriend has - I made terrible discoveries a few weeks ago that she has been living a double life for over a year and a half. It's been a deeply distressing time. And I know this isn't really the right thread fot this. But I am currently homeless, jobless and heartbroken.

I'm currently with my mother in the Lake District as I look to secure accommodation in Briz. Yesterday I borrowed her car and drove out to Ullswater, I put on '...And their Refinement of the Decline'. LOUD. As loud as the speakers could bear. I love this band so much. The music moves me and chimes with my inner self so powerfully, like hardly any other, perhaps only Low. Tippy's Demise was a revelation, once again. It was like a cool balm on my troubled mind. Reaching and comforting a place only music can reach. It was fleeting, but I know better times lie ahead. It's extremely tough right now. Forward steps, backwards steps, side steps. I'm reeling, punchdrunk.

However. A positive. I can now most definately make the Barbican show. My train is booked, my hotel is booked (thanks Mexi) and goddamit I am going to do all I can to be there. I have waited a year for this gig. I believe I will be in a better place when it comes around. I hope a few of us can meet up before, or after, or both. And have a pint in the sun. I'm looking forward to it.

Mate, that's fucking awful!! So sorry. Ironically I'm sat in a cottage with Techboy and respective partners in the Highlands with the Black dog mixtape playing. Hang in there pal and we'll catch up at Barbican. I'll see if Techboy fancies your ticket too.

Shit mate, that's rough. I hope you're alright. Would be great to finally meet you and get a pint in London. I'm sure we'll all arrange something nearer the time. If you want a double dose of the 'Lid and fancy a day trip to Brighton, by all means come. I will be there and you can crash at mine no problem.

Hang in there, buddy. Stuff like this never goes smoothly. You'll get back on track, I'm sure of it.

I like the new tune linked in the article - a bit like The Dead Texan but with an early 'Lid guitar sound.

Dang. Have you seen the tour posters they will be selling at the shows? Beautiful. A framed SoTL poster is a thing I've been after for many a moon. Looks like I'll finally get a chance...

Yeah, found it. All over it man, got to have one! Still can't find the price. Guessing a fair chunk of change.

Oh my! That is gorgeous! There's a wall in the studio space here that needs that poster. :)
