Change of website url and rss feed url!

Hello. Due to our continuing webhost move the website url has now changed *officially* to swishblog.co.uk; so although you'll still be able to access The Swish Blog through abougu.co.uk, abougu.co.uk/swishblog/ and swishblog.net they will simply be redirects.

As a consequence the RSS feed for The Swish Blog has changed to http://www.swishblog.co.uk/atom.xml (ATOM), and http://www.swishblog.co.uk/index.xml (RSS 2.0), please update your links and feeds.

Thanks for your patience.

You're not alone.

No, No, Diplo..

February 21, 2006

Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back, but you knew that. The Diplo remix of Gold Lion is incredible, but you knew that. They have really awesome LiveJournal and MSN avatars here, but you probably even knew that didn't you? And they have one of those annoying desktop buddies for download here, did you know that?

You can buy tickets and stuff too:
13th/Camber Sands / All Tomorrow's Parties // £125
16th/London / The Forum // £18
17th/London / The Forum // £18
19th/Glasgow / Barrowlands // £15
20th/Manchester / Academy // £15
21st/Birmingham / Academy // £15

Here, here, here or here.

More spazzing

February 20, 2006

As I alluded to earlier, during the F-up I lost all of my audio files and my podcast xml feed, which was a bit of a downer as I'd just updated it so you could download almost all of my previous 20 Podcasts. Luckily I had a backup of the audio files, and they are now back on the server available to download: go mad. Unfortunately I didn't have a back up of the Podcast xml feed, so - although there is a limited version up live on the server now - that will take a little longer to restore (the time it takes me to rewrite the whole thing in fact)..

In the meantime, download any of my podcast episodes directly from here. Woop.

The f***-up in full...

To explain what's been wrong with The Swish Blog over the past week would take ages and ages. In short, my host lost most of my files (including all my images and audio files) so I moved to a new host. Hopefully everything should be up and running soon, although it probably means that all my previous posts will be text-only from now on (barring some miracle and/or many man-hours of image replacement), I also hope to have my audio files and a NEW podcast xml file up and running asap... Love, Chris/x

Swish Blog Podcast Mix, Episode #20

February 10, 2006

It's been an exceedingly long time since I last did a Podcast wotsit for your eager ears, dear reader. For that, I apologise. However I have complete faith that this mix will make up for any bad feeling owing to my delayed absence, because, in all honesty it's friggin' boss.

And in case you were wondering, Future and the Boy is Eddie Argos from Art Brut; it seems he was having a laugh in the studio with fellow Art-Gobliner Nicky Biscuit. Add Them.
