Thanks to every one who came to the show on Thursday, and thanks Angeline, Stefan, Nick and Klaus for playing!
Correction to what I wrote the other day: the audio foundation christmas party is on the 7th December. For this event I am "DJ Kraus". Haven't decided what to do yet. I might mush some records through my synthesizer.
Other news: the Audio Foundation shop has copies of Supreme Commander and Realistic Pillow. See you later!

On Sunday the 10th Nov 6-10pm there's going to be a live simulcast on AFM featuring MHFS, It Hurts, NW and Chronic Fatigue plus, hopefully a short Kraus set. Then on the 14th Novumber there's this show at my house in Kingsland along with Daniel Satele, Mark Matchak and Alex Wild. THEN on the 21st I'm playing at the Audio FOundation supporting Klaus Fillip. Maltese Falcons are playing at A.F. again on the 29th. 1st December afternoon is a NO VENUE show in Nixon Park in Kingsland and I hope to play (Kraus) at that too.
Looks like I'm going to DJ at the AF xmas party which i think is on the 10th December. If anyone finds that interesting.
That is all
