Tonight was Geoff Norcott.

A very enjoyable evening...

It is simpler than it looks.

Soft Machine at the Gulbenkian in Canterbury last night. Absolutely superb.

The last SM gig I went to was on 12/10/73.

There's no vibrations, but wait.

Mr Billy Bragg.

Enticed to a small town venue to play a guitar that didn't physically exist at 6:00am this morning.

We have a fantastic community workshop here and one of their projects has been to make guitars. Helping people with challenging conditions to get involved. One of the workshop founders managed* to ask Mr BB if he'd come and play one of their guitars. One that was made in 12hours, today.

The gig was a selection of people involved in the project playing, ending with an 80 minute set from Mr Bragg, playing on the very guitar that was made today.




Yes, pink pickups.

*piggedly kept on through restrictive layers to get to meet Mr BB...

Alessandro Cortini at the Barbican yesterday was good, but not as good as he was in Brighton in October. The support, KMRU, a young Kenyan sound artist, more than made up for this

Just been to a local band night.  Mixed bunch, haven't gone through all the pics yet, but I thought this might be a keeper when I took it.

Last night was Rufus Wainwright.

He was excellent, but I didn't stay until the end, on account of being hungry.
