Giraffe, Zebra, Crocodile, And The Smokin' Party Girls

Giraffe, Zebra, Crocodile, And The Smokin' Party GirlsAh, the stone circle at dawn, pagan party. Been here so many times, it feels like a homecoming.

Fantastic Acoustic Shenanigans

 Fantastic Acoustic Shenanigans More fantastic acoustic shenanigans in Cambridge last night. Out really late, raining til past midnight, but we all stay dry til 5. 1st time with the looper. Sounds ace, I gotta set up the loops, set up the sounds, and just practice, lots of practice. Jessica Quote - 'You're my favourite person in the whole world.' :-)

Strawberry Fair Forever

Strawberry Fair ForeverStrawberry Fair. Cambridge at its best and worst. Busy streets. Excitement in the air. The constant low rumble of loud music wafting over from Midsummer Common. Wasted souls staggering across roads, in search of far away off-licences. The summer alcoholics who turn up now, and never quite leave til winter. And everyone dressed up ready for a very big party. See you all tonight folks. Don't be early. :-)

Special, Spine Tingling, And Loud

Special, Spine Tingling, And LoudThere's a fantastic moment where I'm playing Can't Take My Eyes Off You, there's something like 100 people singing and dancing, and it just goes off somewhere really special, spine tingling, and loud. Big crowds for the first time in ages, I'd guess maxing out at 120-130. Dunno. Lots! Big fun too. And not one person asks for Sex On Fire all night. :-)
