Thanks jessi -- yes it's my show. We've been waiting for his return to Cambridge for a long time now.

He came over with Ariel Pink, when he came to play the UK.

Ariel Pink, John and Gary War toured the UK in June 2005. Image

Before that (January 2005) he also toured Europe with Panda Bear but he and Ariel didn't manage to get into the UK that time.

Tonight (finally!)

Was pretty surprised to hear the Guardian Guide have listed this alongside CSS and MIA as their three southern gigs of the week:

John Maus
Chum of Animal Collective, Panda Bear et al brings music from his second solo LP. Lo-fi yacht rock and electronic chunes reminiscent of the Magnetic Fields are to be expected
· The Portland, Cambridge, Monday

Slow news week/some big AP fans at the Guardian as we know from the feature last year I reckon.

I read it online but someone is keeping the printed one for me so I will get it next week and scan it then.

Here's the online version anyway (not sure if this is a permalink or not):

A quick message since John's just left for London again and I have to get back to work.

It was a good night and John did the full set of stuff he was planning including doing 'Tenebrae' which he said he was doing for the first time live.

It is kind of quiet in Cambridge when the students aren't around plus we had people going to see SunnO))) in London instead and people only just getting back from ATP that day and various other excuses, but I think most of the hardcore of people who are trying to stop themselves actually singing along with songs from 'Songs' were there. Strangely enough we didn't suddenly get hundreds of Guardian readers trying out a small venue gig ...

Yep I can imagine ATP taking away some of the custom. I'm a little surprised that he is heading back up to London again, I figured that he'd be making his way through the rest of the country now.

I wonder whether his Nottingham show will take place or not, as it is still TBC on his Myspace.
