They're calling it Bloctober

Let's hope Bloc Party have secured the rights to the tricksy name Bloctober for their October UK tour - when the Colorado Rockies made it to play off a couple of years back, they didn't realise that someone had beaten them to registering Rocktober as a trademark and wound up having to shovel cash for belated rights approval.

Still, those dates:
