Gaz Coombes, Paul Weller, Tim Burgess, and my favorite DJ -- and ex-lead singer of the band which I loved so much and whose b-side inspired my e-mail handle -- Lauren Laverne were at the Christmas Tree Sessions gig in London last night (December 5). The event was for Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day charity drive.
