Apparently Richie Hawtin is joining Dubfire, Steve Lawler and Layo & Bushwacka on one of the stages at the South West Four festival. Can’t say Love Clapham knows half of them but they’re probably GREAT.

Spring is well and truly upon us and the joggers are out in force to make the most of Clapham Common in the sun. This lady shot past at the speed of light. Gotta love that row of trees.
