So the weekend arrives dear readers and we’re in the eye of the storm it seems. An old lady in a rocking chair has just flown past the window. As the Labour Party conference hits us here in Liverpool (welcome if you’re around!) we leave you this week with news that following dates earlier this summer, Ethan Johns is set to return for more UK shows in October with his long standing band the Black Eyed Dogs. If you don’t know him already, Johns has worked with artists including Ryan Adams, Kings of Leon, Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne, Tom Jones, Kaiser Chiefs, Rufus Wainwright, The Boxer Rebellion, Crowded House, The Vaccines, Laura Marling, The Staves, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. And H from Steps. Oj.
