Trip to Highbarn:

I have to say I'm very impressed that Cat can now drive straight to The Five bells without getting lost - one minor wrong turning in the village (that will teach her to listen to me for a millisecond lol!). We arrived in dribs & drabs, but the full cast list was: Cat + OH, Mita + OH, Moomin, Pedsky, Samofbev, myself and @lovindamusic and @claret_and_white from twitter. Sunday lunch + pud downed successfully - I think I saw Josie the bar maid from Into the light, but no other "customers of note" were spotted. (Wondering how nuts the OH's thought we were after listening to the chatter )

Then to Highbarn - well, I thought we were all done with "lane adventures" in Essex - but we found an absolutely corking single lane track that somehow got us there but felt as if we were heading into the middle of nowhere for a long time!

By the time we got there, it was nearly 5, when Ben Smith, Ali & Lorenzo were due to perform, so we went in, spotted Daddy Cardle on our way (stopped off for hugs), spotted Pippa sitting at his table (stopped off for hugs) then through to the marquee. What can I say - the guys looked like they were having such fun, and Ben Smith does a fine line in facial grimaces!

This is my first video upload - I'm chuffed as hell! And I love Ali's solo bits!

Then we had an hour or so to wait while they got ready for the evening performances in the barn. We stood outside chatting to Paul and Ali for a while - they really are fun guys! Sam gave Paul a copy of the book and they had a laugh at various "big pants" pics (poor Sam) - Paul seemed very taken with it, and I hope he has a laugh reading it. Lorenzo was nearby and we persuaded him into some photos, but for a rock God he seems a really shy guy, bless him.

Anyway we asked Paul about the marathon - he confessed he has the ear phones in for the last few miles listening to "inspirational" tracks like The final Countdown, and.....yes.....Run for your life lol!! We had to laugh because he's now learned that when we show him our photos with Matt, he just has to say "You look like a married couple" and we're all in raptures!!!

I asked Ali how many people had applied so far for the ticket lottery - 800 or so for 2 tickets each, with 200 available. Kate is actually quite thankful that it is all being done by this automatic online thing, as they wouldn't fancy facing the phones calls involved otherwise. I'm actually quite relieved that Matt hasn't tweeted about it yet - they have enough to cope with as it is! Anyway, I have put in my request for All along the watchtower direct to Ali - he responded very positively, so I'm pretty sure they will do it. *prays* We've also suggested that if they do consider doing old Darwyn stuff, then Paul could take Richard Grace's place. Obviously, nothing is definite yet. I don't know if Matt will really be allowed to promote old stuff, but the pieces are all there if ptb give it the all clear.
I WOULD DIE A HAPPY WOMAN IF I HEARD DARWYN STUFF LIVE! **promises to say prayers every night and be a good girl forever if it happens**

We had a long chat with Kate too - there were CD's of Richard Lobb by the bar - Lost & Found (picked one of those up) and we chatted about the tour, our favourite songs, how we'd like the band involved in the making of the next album, about the fact that Matt doesn't even answer DMs on twitter from her lol!

The evening's entertainment consisted of 5 acts - sorry I didn't get a programme so can't give you all their names, but my favourite 2 were Ady Johnson and Robert Castellani (the guy who plays the guitar as a percussion instrument, who we saw the last time we went) so I bought CDs for them too. One slightly awkward moment was when the last singer (a lady - sorry can't remember the name) chose to Sing First time ever I saw your face as her encore (horrified faces from us lot! ). Her voice was very deep and folky, so it sounded completely different, but.........well, enough said, move on!

Anyway, it was a wonderful day spent with dear friends - of course we are all hoping we will be lucky and get back there on June 30th.
I like reading reports ,nice.

[quote=Cardlescardie;58089604]

We only got into the discussion because someone on here (was it DenJ?) mentioned it in a post. I'm not really expecting it tbh, but would like a bigger gap than a week between it and the next album, so it has a chance to stand on its own 2 feet so to speak.
I agree to a point but them on the other hand the album shifted 70k in the first week which in normal circumstances is great first week sales (the no1 album this week which was a new entry (marina and the diamonds) sold 21k . So enough gap to give the single some longevity but not too long as to make people forget all about it.

Just found this... looks like it's being shown on 3 Spanish TV channels
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=uT-E1qnVcac
That's one special button you have there Toasty.

I bet the total royalties earned by Starlight have added up to a very tasty sum.

It's everywhere! It really is. I hope it keeps turning up. I think it would be great for the Olympic coverage but that's dream time. It's a really uplifting tune (even it it's about oblivion) he must make a few bob in royalties for stuff like this. Same as stuff like corrie, it being in the Kate and Will documentary, in the soap awards ect. It's all good.

Toasty's button is the stuff of legend. It single handedly got us through the horrible drought of 2011

Exactly. All the components are there. Very hot bloke(Matt ), guitar, bed, stubble and disheveled sleep hair ---> perfection

Morning all


Not just you at all. When he tweets I work it out and then just in general at random times of the day.
I work out the time in Matt's zone several times a day too

Seem to remember a few months back, Matt said that any attempt at the US would be with album 2 later this year. I think that is backed up by the fact that he has gone there to write some of this one in L.A. It does make you think that someone, somewhere, decided from the word go that Matt wouldn't be launched in the US on album 1. Cher, 1D and Rebecca were all sent off to the US to write (have written for them) their first albums, whereas Matt stayed firmly in the UK. I assumed at the time it was a mixture of him feeling he could get all he needed here and also the flying phobia. Now that he has gone there (so he can clearly cope with flying, even if he hates it) I query whether it was always the strategy by the PTB that Letters was an album for the UK only - although why I have no idea.
I also remember Matt saying that he would wait until album No.2 before he headed to the USA. I know that Cher, ID and Rebecca have already been there but maybe Matt felt that he needed more time. Him writing over there now is hopefully a good sign that he'll be back over there later in the year. He may even go back there to record some of the album.

I hope some of Matt's songs are used during the Olympics. I know its not many people's favourite song but RFYL would be very appropriate for the Olympic track events

All hail the special button. Toasty is a total legend!
She certainly is

I know! Even this oldie can imagine how good that would be
