September Sing #9

So I did something I am disappointed with myself for…I didn’t make it for a gig. I’m not proud, but I had a legitimate excuse which was pure, naked exhaustion. 7.30am mornings built up to convince me it was impossible to do four gigs in a working week. I really hope I don’t miss any more.

O’ Neill’s was fun, and populated by half of Bournemouth it seemed. Si Genaro quote of the week, ‘no friends in the music business, only acquaintances.’

What was really great was when a lady called Helen, who really must be in her 70s at least, got up and sang Summertime and Crazy and other jazz standards acappella. She was definitely the star of the night.

So no Anvil on Wednesday, but I played at The Dancing Jug again tonight and I nailed it, I mean I REALLY nailed it. I don’t know how good I was or wasn’t but it felt good. I was excited to be there, Ant’s one of the nicest guys around the music venues, and pretty much all I tried to do worked. Felt buzzy afterwards. Got three drunk girls and a fab blues guitarist dancing at one point. And enjoyed lots of other music, including Plug-In Dave of whom perhaps a photo soon!

September Sing #6

It’s funny how your mood can affect you. Tonight was good, Dancing Jug’s a nice pub, Ant’s a really great guy but I just didn’t feel that I nailed it that well. Didn’t help that I forgot the chords to Just Like Heaven. The others sounded good though. And yet last night, playing to a large amount of empty chairs, I felt almost euphoric when I came home. Perhaps it was last night’s achievement, being pleased that I played well and nailed it without any reaction to feed off of.

Anyroo, looking forward to going back to The Jug.

Stuff

Well, I’m listening to The Cure and have realised that I could probably listen to a Cure song every day for the rest of what is hopefully a long life. Ok, so I might have to listen to certain songs for two days in a row, like Lullaby (the Disintegration version, NOT the Greatest Hits version), or Harold And Joe, or The Caterpillar, or The Exploding Boy, or Push, or Inbetween Days, or Just Like Heaven, or I Don’t Know What’s Going On, or… I think you get the idea. I love them. If I met them I might hate them – I doubt it – but I love them for giving me such pleasure (baby!)

I met up with my best friend today. It was sunny, crisply cold, we had a lovely time and I took a photo of a flower which I may post sometime because it’s pretty.

I’ve finished D-Songs, but then you knew that, and there’s lots of ‘stuff’ to come soon for you to look at, read, listen to, etc. so please PLEASE stay tuned.

I’ve been thinking about a girl I know and I want her bad! I want her body, I want her soul, her sense of wonder, I want her standing in front of me so that she makes me laugh with a really clever or silly observation and I’m starting a song called ‘I Want You Bad’, inspired by wanting her bad, which I shall put somewhere for you to hear because it’s kind of got the potential to be rather sweet.

I’m about to eat two egg custard tarts…mmmmm…nom nom nom!

And Ben Gibbard, lead singer of Death Cab For Cutie, is running a marathon for charity. And although it’s rather last minute of me, here’s a link:
