The brand new King Apparel AW09 range is now available online, please check it out at www.king-apparel.com
I know this has nothing to do with music, however this is a subject worthy of a blog post. Having recently downloaded both demo’s for the PS3 I am a firm believer that Pro Evo makers Konami have stepped up their game (no pun intended).
Last year, EA Sport’s Fifa took the title of the best football game around but it seems like this year Fifa has slowed down, while Pro has surpassed its rival.
When playing the Fifa 10 demo it seemed sluggish and very different to last years game which was fast and fluid. Where as Pro Evo was the complete opposite last year it was slow and unrealistic and this year the overall game play has changed. It’s much faster, the dribbling is better and the passing more life like.
Please take into account these are the demo’s I am talking about and not the complete games. I do not know how either game plays online or if there has been any extras added compared to last year.
One thing I will say is Pro Evo has improved a lot since last year. I will be buying both Fifa 10 and Pro 10 and until I play both of the complete games this is all I can say.
Fifa 10 will be released on Friday Oct 2nd 09 on all formats (Oct 2nd is the day of the next TOTR event just so you know) Pro Evo will be released on Thursday Oct 22nd 09 on all formats.
May the best game win!!

I first heared this song about four years ago it was Christmas day we had just eaten the left over turkey and we were having a good old chin-wag as you do.
My girlfriend’s Dad wanted to listen to some music and he decided to put on an old punk CD of his and XTC’s - Making plans for Nigel was one of the tunes on the CD.
Although, I had quite a lot to drink (an understatement) I remember thinking that the song was amazing. Well I did until I heard Nouvelle Vagues cover.
I remember watching this film as a kid, a really young kid and not being old enough to appreciate the plot. So from what I can remember Harrison Ford’s characters wife is kidnapped.
I have since been told that the film is excellent (a must see again in my case) and yes the wife does get kidnapped, but there is obviously more to the plot than just kidnap.
Anyway, as I wasn’t old enough to appreciate the plot I was however old enough to be engrossed by the music and the theme tune in particular by Ennio Morricone. It had and still has an ‘eery’ feel to it and that’s why I remember it and apparently the song is heard at key moments during the film.
Listen for yourself and do check out the film Frantic starring Harrison Ford.
This week sees the start of the Ibiza closing parties, 19th September to be precise. I will be out in Ibiza from next week to experience the closing parties for myself.
It will be my first time in Ibiza and ‘I cannae wait’. I have heard so much about the island from so many different people that I don’t know what to expect. One thing I do know is I will have an amazing time.
Parties to be at during the closing season: Defected in the House @ Pacha Sat 26th Sept and We loved Space Sun 27th Sept.
If you’re going to be out in Ibiza during those dates make sure you are at both of those parties. It’s going to be emotional.
So to get you in the mood here are my Top 5 Pre -Ibiza party tunes available to listen to on Spotify.
1) Sinfonia Della Notte - Dennis Ferrer
2) Ever After - Rasmus Faber
3) Swimming Places - Julien Jabre
4) Diamond Life (copyright remix) - Julie M
5) Savannah - ATFC

An apparently drunk Kanye West interrupted country superstar Taylor Swift last night, moments after she won at the MTV Video Music Awards.
She was giving her acceptance speech after winning the award for Best Female Video when Kanye stormed onto the stage, stole the microphone and dissed her, declaring that Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” should have won.
Personally, Kanye West is an arrogant twat and his music should be boycotted.
