Why?- Josiah Wolf

Madame JoJo's, London, June 29th 2008

I then caught Josiah at the merch stall and asked if he could add anything to the story, and so he wrote the above on the back of the card, completing the Why? story.

Why?- Yoni Wolf and Doug McDiarmid

Madame JoJo's, London, June 29th 2008

Having never seen Why? before, I wasn't positive what they looked like, but recognised Yoni's brother Josiah from his hair, and then guessed that Yoni was the one with less hair, and was luckily correct. He was initially unsure about writing a story, but then asked if he could draw something instead. Which he did, and then wrote the bit at the top corner. Doug was sat next to him, and I asked if he'd like to write a story too, and he asked if it was okay if he wrote a comment on Yoni's story, which he did, in the bottom corner.

Hjaltalín - Högni Egilsson

Hoxton Bar and Grill, London, June 10th 2008

Somehow these Icelandic chaps and chapesses were able to come and play a couple of gigs in the UK, and it was just great. Plus I finally got a chance to buy their album.
The above is (another!) story in Icelandic- Högni had asked if it was okay to write in Icelandic, and I said that was fine, and that I already had a story written in Icelandic from Benni Hemm Hemm (it's surely not often that I can ever be able to 'namedrop' BHH!), with Högni saying it must be a good collection then. He was a very friendly chap also.
Really must one day get an Icelandic-English dictionary..
