…play Glasgow ABC on 21st and 22nd August. I can’t go as I fly to America on the afternoon of the 21st, but I thought I might bring this to the attention of Patch fans. Seriously, if you can make it, GO!!!!!! Not only is it the third greatest American band ever playing, but they are also performing one of the defining records of rock in its entirety. Daydream Nation is as influential, tremendous and triumphant record as you can get. A masterpiece of the 20th century that ranks alongside anything The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Smiths, Mozart, Bach and Beethoven have ever done. Striking the perfect balance between punk and poetry, this is a record that defied all previous rock and roll ground and constructed an entirely new way of thinking about popular music. So buy tickets now. NOW!!!!! If I know you and have spoken to you before and you are able to go but don’t, then don’t ever speak to me again.

Teenage Riot is the second greatest song ever.
