Hello NME readers, this is Tommy Sparks. I’m on tour with Bloc Party at the moment and I’m going to be giving you guys the inside scoop.

I filled in for Gordon on bass when he was off on Dad duty last year, but now my band and I are taking the support slot. Exciting stuff!

We just tore Glasgow up two nights in a row and tonight we’ll be live in Manchester before heading off to lovely Wolverhampton.

I’ll be playing a few tracks off my new album (out later this year) and pillaging Bloc Party‘s dressing room when no one’s looking. Make mine a Jaegermeister.

Here’s what happened on our first night in Glasgow! (warning, may contain topless BP members…)
