Last year, we sent Tom to eat ice cream at Latitude Festival and he enjoyed himself so much that we packed his sunscreen and sent him off to 2014′s offering. Here’s his diary, which is stuffed with music to listen to.

Team SGTMT spent this weekend at Suffolk’s Latitude Festival. A weekend of thunderstorms, tinned mackerel and (mostly) fantastic live music experiences. We’ll bash out our review for you soon, but we really really need a shower so it’ll have to wait.
Until then, here’s a track from two of the acts who provided a couple of the festival’s highlights.

TEAM SGTMT are on holiday. And would you take a look at the weather! It couldn’t be more perfect could it?
Although, wait, I guess it could be raining Oreos. Then it would be perfect. Other than that, though, it’s pretty amazing. You should see our tans.

How long have these Breakaways been in the SGTMT pantry do you think? They seemed ok at first, but we remember them being crunchier than this. They’ve gone a bit soft. *Smack smack* yeah these aren’t right. But we’ll still eat them. You can’t waste good chocolate biscuits.
This rule doesn’t apply to everything of course.

Team SGTMT spent this weekend in the south of France, working on our tans and seeing some pals of the blog get married. Heck, we wish you’d been there with us – it was so romantic. And those views. And the swimming pool. You’d have loved it.
We’re back home now and having pastry withdrawal symptoms. Step up our perma-crush Jessie Ware.

Every now and again, and it doesn’t happen often enough sadly, we’re introduced to a record that turns out to be an instant favourite. Recently a friend pointed us in the direction of The War On Drugs’ third Lost In The Dream LP, and it has hardly left the SGTMT Headquarters stereo since. It’s wonderful. So wonderful we’ll make a bold claim…

This week has been a total disaster at SGTMT HQ.
Even worse than that time when the shelves collapsed and I was nearly killed. Remember that? It was harrowing. Regular readers (hi Matt and Tim!) will know everything on the blog is a metaphor, apart from when it’s not, and I can’t even remember what had happened that time. But this is worse for sure.

Team SGTMT are amazing dancers. We have a unique sense of rhythm, almost as if we’re dancing to the echoes of the first ever rhythm, rather than to that of the song that’s playing.

Last year Team SGTMT had a turbulent relationship with Daughter, one of our favourite acts…
April 13, 2014
Yesterday seemed like a lovely day for a day trip. So Team SGTMT got on our pushbikes and set off on a leisurely ride from London to Brighton.

Today Team SGTMT are going out for pizza. The original plan was coffee, but pizza is a sizeable upgrade we think you’ll all agree.
March 19, 2014
Today Team SGTMT had a lunchtime yogurt mishap.
As part of our ongoing drive for a healthier, happier workforce, Team SGTMT are being encouraged to eat healthily and take exercise. Yogurts are The Leadership’s latest idea for keeping trim, this next period in our Happier Living Programme beginning only yesterday with a toffee yogurt (we know but they’re tasty shut up). The endeavour continued today when we took an excursion deep into strawberry yogurt territory.
They don’t warn us about exploding yogurts though, do they?

It’s a beautiful day out there guys. Yet we’re inside missing it. What would our mothers say?
We’ll go outside in a minute, perhaps to ride our bicycles. Team SGTMT did that a lot as children and it led to many an adventure, most notably the time we stumbled upon an abandoned airfield and, inside a dusty bullet-holed hangar, found the local drug baron’s stash of hard cash. His ill-gotten gains. Left unattended. Schoolboy error. We looked at each other, eyes wide in delight and hearts pounding and considered what to do.

Tourist is one of our favourites at SGTMT Headquarters.
Whenever he visits he always takes his shoes off. He never puts his tea mug down without a coaster. And he brings biscuits. Let us tell you there are some other pop stars who could take a leaf out of his book. Kanye, we’re looking at you here. You’ve been round here how many times now? And still no biscuits. Not once. Rude.

We’ve spent just one day with Shura and we’re smitten. Like when we first tasted butterscotch flavour Angel Delight. It was instant, um, delight. Except this time no matter how much we enjoy it over and over again we don’t throw up over our mother’s favourite cushion.

It was Tubemagaddon in London today everyone. Queues everywhere. Closed stations. Gridlocked traffic. Chaos reigned. CHAOS.
In the end it took just an hour and half for society to break down. Feral commuters abandoned briefcases and tore through the streets looking for roadkill to feast on, their suits shredded and filthy with mud and, in some cases, the blood of other slower commuters. It was like a scene from, um, I don’t know like I guess ‘Falling Down’ or something but with more protagonists, and more rain.

Team SGTMT are on HOLIDAY. We’ve got HOLIDAY FEVER. Two whole weeks away from the mines, and it’s fun-packed already. So far we’ve eaten bolognese for breakfast, ridden our bicycles, done some washing and been to Birmingham. WHAT AN ADVENTURE. If we all died right now we’d die happy.
There’s loads of time left but judging by what we’ve done this morning we’re going to spend all of it sat in the SGTMT Canteen listening to KHUSHI.
December 18, 2013
We’ve been gathering every morning in the SGTMT Listening Room to sing together, a ritual aimed at boosting our morale and team spirit before a hard day chopping firewood and preparing snacks to keep the blog going over the festive season. We tried carols for a couple of days, but they’ve gotten annoying. Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ gave yesterday a really good start. But today we’ve been singing something really special, from our new friend Daniel Wilson.
December 12, 2013
This week Team SGTMT discovered a small fire outside our Headquarters.
It was probably set by hoodlums. Young people these days are out of control aren’t they? Broken Britain.
December 2, 2013
At SGTMT we love making lists.
Without them we’d get nothing done. With them we’re relaxed, there’s no more worrying we’ll forget something important (buy snacks/turn the bath taps off/make a snowball and put it in the freezer to surprise someone in June before all the snow melts). Lists make us better people. Fitter, happier, more productive.

We’re imagining twirling the giant sheepdog around the room, as it stands on its hind legs, ballroom style. It looks into our eyes and it’s like life is a fairytale that even doggy breath can’t ruin.

Today, huddled around the cooker in the canteen at SGTMT Headquarters, the team were discussing life.
We’d talked via video-link to pals who were not having the best of times and we were considering our lot and thinking, well, life is not so bad eh chaps. There’s always someone worse off than you it seems. Then Tim looked down and realised the bacon we were cooking was burning. I panicked, and started shouting about the bacon, pointing out that it was indeed burning, thus providing a key service to all members of the team by ensuring they were fully abreast of the situation. Tim was paralysed by indecision. Someone had to take charge.

We’ve discovered KHUSHI and we’re IN LOVE.
October 16, 2013
Team SGTMT have had two dinners each for two days running now. Is that normal?
Maybe it’s winter drawing in and the cold requiring our bodies to have more Oreos (other tasty biscuits of joy are available) to burn for fuel. Maybe it’s the fact we’re a bit ill and we need more mini Crunchies (other mini chocolate bars of joy are available) from a Christmas Selection pack which we won in a recent competition but suspect are actually from last year to help our bodies fight infection.
Or maybe we just really like eating food and find it hard to stop. Who cares, as long as we’re happy.
