Romance & Cigarettes

Watching Splash with Tom Hanks on TG4 reminded me of this somewhat more impressive underwater scene from John Turturro's hugely underrated and ignored Romance & Cigarettes. Mind the crude content for ye of a sensitive disposition.

also, check this out for an insight into some of Turturro's most iconic role

BPLO at HWCH, live on 2XM

Had a fantastic and busy weekend with The Brad Pitt Light Orchestra at this year's Hard Working Class Heroes festival. Really enjoyed our multiple sets (one of them below) and it was nice to meet some great peeps and check out a one or two decent bands along the way (not that there weren't more, just that's all I got to see). It really is a great festival, and I love the feel of the city with all the gigs going on. Even got to meet a few heads I haven't seen in a very long time. Of course, we also had an excuse for a few pints - on a school night can you believe it!
