“Sophia heads out on the road again around Europe for
a month. This tour’s a bigger operation as there’s
gonna be a string quartet out with us also.
I’ve only played with the strings twice, a festival in
Belgium and a radio session in Paris but for some
strange reason the string players are always the ones
who go straight to the back of the bus and start
skinning up and then later on they’re all wasted and
shit – they’re far more rock’n’roll than they oughtta
be in other words!
The Album Leaf are opening up on most of the dates –
that’s this guy Jimmy LaValle from San Diego who used
to be in Black Heart Procession and who’s just
released a nice sounding, really chilled out album
recorded in Iceland with Sigur Ros”
