I almost forgot to post about these! We started recording some direct-to-camera live covers of songs for Youtube this year too - this is the first, it's the Prince track:

I spent a large chunk of the summer working for the BBC, as a "background artiste" in a period courtroom drama called "Garrow's Law". The work wasn't too hard, just very long days (6.30am to 8.30pm) and a hot stuff studio that was hard to stay awake in. Garrow's Law is the story of William Garrow who apparenlt was hot shit in the Old Bailey of the 18th Century. I think he was the first person to start defending the prosecuted. I can't remember much as I fell asleep a lot. But I did get to wear some bad ass threads (though the wig was annoying):

Oh yeah and they forced me to shave - they said middle class people back then didn't have facial hair.
If you want to watch it (UK only, sorry everyone else) the link to the BBC iplayer is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00nsp4s/Garrows_Law_Tales_from_the_Old_Bailey_Episode_1/

This live recording of me performing at the Chateau Miami party from all the way back in 2006 dropped in August, it's available as a free download from the Little Rock website. It features early versions of I Came and Out Of My Mind, and some skits - it's not as good as the next live EP, but hey. It was an amazing party, which also featured live sets from Remember Remember and the Microsluts and DJ action from Lovebug Soundsystem and Emergency - I am pretty sure I would have posted about it after it just happened as I was well into my blogginz at the time, innit.

I also did a mix for the birthday 7inch download giveaway bonanza, I'm very happy with this as I got well into Ableton, and keeping certain beats going for the whole thing so I can weave lots of stuff in and out on top. The whole promotion ended up being labeled "Too Much Music!" so that's the name of the mix too. It's pretty uptempo this mix - rave on!

14 x 7 ART

Here's some of the best sleeve art we had in the bunch of 14 seven-inches.

This is by Fox Gut Daata (I am assuming, seeing as he is artistcly inclined). If it's not by him then it must be by Callum Cuneen aka Louts.

This one is by local design bod Paul Smith, he did the logos too, it's really nice!

And this one is a combination of me (letters) and the amazing Frank Quitely. He's done another design for us that is the best poster/flyer we've ever had. That will be in a later post!

14/7 = LR is 2

The summer was relatively slow here but we managed to get some pretty big projects all wrapped up. The main thing was a July promotion where we put up a download 7inch a day for the last two weeks of the month, (which took up up to Lil050 - that's a lot of music!)by a whole bunch of different artists. We did it to celebrate the second birthday of Little Rock, and to put out more on the download 7inch format we have been plugigng since the start. All these singles are still available as downloads, here's the list of 14 releases:
