Singing out a huge Thank You to the people of Adelaide and to our Adelaidian Tour Manager, Mr. Pete Titchener, Lord T., thank you! ... The tour was sensational from the warmth of the folk at the South Coast Folk Club to the craic of the Irish at the Adelaide Irish Club, and following up with a final concert at the gorgeous Trinity Sessions, wow, feeling truly blessed.
Though the rain chased us into Adelaide, the rainbows led us home.

There ain’t no party like a Lagos party.
Or so they say. This weekend, Dazed flew out to Lagos, Nigeria for the third annual MTV Africa Music.
Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.
