DUUUUUUUURP! DUHRRRRRRRRRRRRRPP!

No, no: not more bowel problems, but the sinister mogadon-foghorn sound of timestretched trumpets...

Simon Silverdollar on cracking form (as ever) , invoking images of "heroin horn-sections" with his descriptions of pitched-down and s_t_r_e_t_c_h_e_d-out brass-sections on recent Grime tunes. Wonderful stuff.

And Psychbloke's Picture Post reportage from the blackened Heart of Darkness otherwise known as Somerset Carnival Season. I was hoping to post some analogue pics of kids (not my own) dressed as bees and cigarette packets, live-and-direct from this year's Yeovil Carnival, but I, uh, drew the short straw and stayed in with the littlest one while Chris and Kid Kid Shirt went and did da biz. Chris said it was incredibly late starting this year, so Soph was really flagging and had to come home before it really kicked off. She was sooo tired that she didn't even want a scary balloon. Awww...
