Straight out of nowhere, The Porter Report pops out of the ether with two brand new installments. There’s no escaping the fact that they’re heavily biased towards the ladies, but let’s be reasonable about this… if you look at the last few intermittent posts, they’ve been well laddish.

Here’s a little treat for you in advance of some new Reports which, with the luck of the big man and a prevailing breeze, should be fit for human consumption within the next month.
The London leg of Noah & The Whale’s first national tour saw Twickenham’s other Harlequins swell to a septet, aided and abetted as they were by Laura Marling and a two man Brass Squad. This inspired choice of encore ensured the evening ended with a sing-a-long and room full of happy punters, a bit like Flannegan & Allen performing ‘Morrisey: The Musical’
