Give it to me, I know it’s only the truth…

So, Camden again. A first – no covers, I only played my songs, including a new one. It went well. There were again awesome musicians all over the place – Drew, Dan (I think) and Gehko were a few of them.

People seemed to like the songs so that’s good.
I meant to take photos but forgot to take a camera with me.

Set List, Camden Bar, Monday 26th November 2012

Pieces Of Me

Hello Sensitive

Pandora

And on Saturday night, I saw Hope & Social play at the Winchester. It’s only the third time I’ve seen them live but it was easily as enjoyable as the others. They are a rare breed of band in that they seem to see fun and banter as an integral part of their live act and it makes for a consistently fantastic evening out. I had the best intentions of getting much more involved in their day trips and art-making and I did get as far as remixing one of their tracks but it was unsatisfactory. I shall go back to it at some point and have another go. But despite only crossing paths briefly, they remain very special to me and I urge you to see them live at least twice. Find me another band who will order their trumpet player to run, mid-song, to the corner shop for chocolate, alcohol and, ahem, adult literature to see if he can make it back before the song ends, whilst getting a member of the audience to play fill-in guitar (sorry, Si Genaro, I dropped you in it there, but you played a blinder!). An inspiring and uplifting gig, as wonderfully vibrant as the Crypt and Glastonbury ones. Simon, the lovely chap with the main vocal and usherette duties, told me that they might be returning this way. If they are I urge you to make an effort to see them.

Camden Bar, 3rd October 2011

Another really enjoyable night at the Camden Bar. Tim as effervescent and friendly as ever, ‘poetry girl’ (© John) was great again, a bit of welcome accompaniment during Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, some truly lovely ukelele and singing, some nice songwriter stuff, really enjoyed Song For The Shy, Harry becoming a favourite of Charlotte, John and mine, and a little too much alcohol for the final guy.

Unfortunately, because I went on first, half the people who came to support turned up after my set! Next time, guys and gals! 🙂

Sonics and Wheel Spins

Played at O’Neill’s tonight in Bournemouth for the first time. It was good. There was quite an interesting variety of musicians there. I did the same set as at Camden and it seemed to go down well. I liked Pete’s Sonics, Si Genaro’s harmonica was as legendary as ever, some great beatboxing and Sarge’s enigmatic silence was very amusing.

There were beautiful people aplenty, but the most beautiful were Natalie, Vicky, Rachel, Ben, John and Mr and Mrs The Woo and partners for taking the time to come and support the Coo.

Then we span the wheels around Bournemouth a bit, but don’t tell anyone!

Video, photos, set list to follow soon.
