Yay! I went down early monday morning and bought one all for myself. Keeping the receipt. Somewhere i've got the receipt to my iMegaphone too bought in london 8 years ago when it came out. Wow...where do the years go?!
So. After all this time you guys. You've waited and waited (sorry for those outseide UK! getting there) and have one now in your hands...was it worth it? Is it everything you've hoped for? I really hope so. I am so grateful for your patience. Some of you have even longer to wait i'm afraid! We're working on it though. Don't you worry.
Some of you have been emailing in telling us it's not in the shop you went to. If you're going into shops and asking for it (even if you already have it!) this is the best way for me to get them in there. Shops have to decide whether they're going to sell something before accepting them off me. It's a bit of a chicken and egg situation but if enough people ask for it. Shops'll get it in then it'll be there for someone to stumble across.
It was definitely worth the wait for me. I got it just the way I wanted it for the first time. I LOVE the packaging. It's so touchy feely. Lots of things to look at...(mainly me and a green dog!) Any of those reading the blog back in December will know where this pic comes from.
Now i'm sure a few of you are responsible for Speak for yourself being at no.11 on the UK itunes chart. THANKYOU BIG TIME! This is really exciting for me. What a great beginning. Kisses! xx
Funny...had such a great day wondering round the shops buying me a couple of albums and seeing where they weren't and where they were...beaming...light footed. Like things are somehow, cliche, but clearer. Noticing how the air, feels. How the clouds lie. All that time waiting and here it is. In and out in a day. I had a really great night too on Monday where i invited some friends to meet me under Waterloo bridge (nicer than it sounds!) outside the NFT all sit together on the big wooden pews, drinking. I bought quite a lot of champagne too when i heard that Zane lowe played Hide and Seek on his Radio 1 show as the "hottest record in the world today" and then it got chosen for an Encore out of everything he played that night! THANKYOU! So many thank yous!
on that note
p.s. Sorry steve for getting your last name wrong! Bevis not Bevin! DOH! we love immifont.
oh and another thing i've forgotten to mention was the bike trip i did! Well in brief I had a great time and i'm doing it next year. Maybe see you there? Hopefully it won't be quite as hot next year. Again, thank you all who donated some money for the BHF. You raised £250! Not bad for a days notice. All sent off and put to good use i'm sure by now.
Ok...you know that Tori tour...well...erm...it's not happening. I'm really sorry for anyone who's already bought tickets in the hope of catching me play. Some of you know I STILL haven't signed a licensing deal for the states yet (my goodness these things take time!) and it's now only 3 weeks until it would have kicked off. Also due to the exchange rate it's almost twice as expensive for a US label to fly me out as ususal and at the start of the album US campaign that is a lot of money gone... I am going to tour the States. YOU BET! I will make up for it. A little later in the year i'll be over there in some form or another and it'll make much more sense timing wise too. I hope you understand. I feel bad that i may have pissed off Tori too. I'm sure she'll understand. She's a Pro!
I'm off for a spot of gigtasticness in shoreditch for some heavy ROCK at "on the rocks". Plus, not dressed yet and i have a feeling it's going to be one of those "all the clothes pulled out of cupboard" evenings.
Love to you all.
Sorry about Tori again. Will tour there by the end of the year...and a big one hopefully in the new year. I would only have played for 30 mins anyway.
I know you can hold out on me! ;)
