2009 begins. It’s snowing loads where I live and the dog poo has frozen on the street. Memories of a new year’s eve’s carnage that I never experienced is all around with upturned batteries of fireworks in every public square. Looks more like the remnants of a war-zone than a party, but there we go.
The new year’s eve I did experience was very nice indeed. So big thanks to MMM family, Mulletover, Tayo, the storage unit people, the staff from the Star of Bethnal Green and everyone who came down and made it horrible in the best way.
As it’s cold and people are probably broke and partied out I thought I’d lump together some of my favorite bedtime/breakfast tracks in an mp3 and share – hope you like…
