      Hello Peter,
      I saw you last week, at your show in Lille. Fantastic, I really loved it. It was a great thing you came drink a bear with everybody in the Aeronef’s bar… I only regret i couldn’t bring you to the Kremlin, one of the best pub in Lille, with the best vodkas…
      I wonder… do you know the poet Tristan Corbière and his “Amour jaunes” ? , i think you’d love it.

      Hope you’ll like it


      Coureur d’idéal, — sans idée ;
      Rime riche, — et jamais rimée ;
      Sans avoir été, — revenu ;
      Se retrouvant partout perdu.

      Poète, en dépit de ses vers ;
      Artiste sans art, — à l’envers,
      Philosophe, — à tort à travers.

      Un drôle sérieux, — pas drôle.
      Acteur, il ne sut pas son rôle ;
      Peintre : il jouait de la musette ;
      Et musicien : de la palette.

      Une tête ! — mais pas de tête ;
      Trop fou pour savoir être bête ;
      Prenant pour un trait le mot très.
      — Ses vers faux furent ses seuls vrais.

      Oiseau rare — et de pacotille ;
      Très mâle… et quelquefois très fille ;
      Capable de tout, — bon à rien ;
      Gâchant bien le mal, mal le bien.
      Prodigue comme était l’enfant
      Du Testament, — sans testament.
      Brave, et souvent, par peur du plat,
      Mettant ses deux pieds dans le plat.

      Coloriste enragé, — mais blême ;
      Incompris… — surtout de lui-même ;
      Il pleura, chanta juste faux ;
      — Et fut un défaut sans défauts.

      Ne fut quelqu’un, ni quelque chose
      Son naturel était la pose.
      Pas poseur, — posant pour l’unique ;
      Trop naïf, étant trop cynique ;
      Ne croyant à rien, croyant tout.
      — Son goût était dans le dégoût.

      Trop crû, — parce qu’il fut trop cuit,
      Ressemblant à rien moins qu’à lui,
      Il s’amusa de son ennui,
      Jusqu’à s’en réveiller la nuit.
      Flâneur au large, — à la dérive,
      Épave qui jamais n’arrive….

      Trop Soi pour se pouvoir souffrir,
      L’esprit à sec et la tête ivre,
      Fini, mais ne sachant finir,
      Il mourut en s’attendant vivre
      Et vécut, s’attendant mourir.

      Ci-gît, — cœur sans cœur, mal planté,
      Trop réussi, — comme raté.

      Do you have any clue on the new solo album and how far along the track is it to being completed?

      I don’t know who Boydster is but wanted to post that I had a dream come true about 5 minutes ago hearing Pete sing my favorite song “Breck Road Lover” I recorded it as my ringtone and get asked by all the high school students I teach…”what is that song and who is singing it?” so I get to tell them. From Arizona and bigalpacino1 thanks so much! Can’t wait to watch more uploads from Brixton Jamm tonight!

      Hello! You are in the movie with a wonderful actress. It would be great if you sang undying “Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus” with Charlotte Geinsburge./at leisure

      THere are enough songs, Sir tattyrat, not enough, well… not enough love. At least there is from here you know Mr Tattyrat. My boy needs to chill’, it’s not like… you’re gonna change anything, me neither. So just pick up the substitution pannel with 23 and 11 written on it and stand there like a bollard making signs to no-one. Pick your nose at the same time. Love ya all the same Mr Truffaut

      Righto, taking Dockersby to Portugal on Tuesday to see Boz Boorer (Mozza’s axeman). He’s got a state of the art studio up there in the hills and hopefully we’ll come out the other side with some worldwide smash hits! God knows we need some but don’t tell Pete I said that, he’s very sensitive about it. He’s been doing more cooking than writing recently and it’s my job to get him out of the kitchen! I’ll post the second installment of my video diary when I’m out there so look out for it?

      I love this business we call ‘the rock’,

      The Boydster.
