Blog: A Quiet Night Out
|< previous||next >|
Some time later he went off to do Chicken Royale ADMIN and I went and had some chips. Many years ago the chips next door to the B&G were RANCID, so I was pleased to see that since then they have improved MARKEDLY. I got back in time to see the first band, who were a little ropey, and then was pleased to be joined by James From The Mailing List and his friend Eileen. We had a bit of a CHAT, and then collectively, i think, rather enjoyed the second band Les Ruprettes. People in the other room later remarked that they were a bit "Rock School", which I could sort of see, but they were also a LOT of fun - sort of like them American College Bar Bands you see in FILMS and that - but most importantly they had an ELECTRIC UKELELE, which they used A LOT. It was GRATE!
Then it was my turn to go on, and this is what I did:
It was a funny old set really, as I wasn't sure what to play. There was hardly anybody there at all, and i guessed (correctly!) that most of the people who'd come for the other bands would either LEAVE or not really be very interested, so decided to do the LOUDER songs rather than just NEW ones, and it seemed to go OK, but after the ROCK ANTICS of Cambridge the week before it all felt a bit QUIET. I must say I did ENJOY myself tho, especially doing a rather SLOWED DOWN version of Billy Jones Is Dead at the end, that felt GOOD.

Afterwards we sat around and had a bit more of a CHAT, then made for the TUBE. When James and I were changing at Euston we bumped into Ian 2Bob who, bizarrely, I'd also bumped into the LAST time i went out in That London at Chicken Royale the other night. LONDON! It is TINY! THUS we had had a chat all the way to Liverpool Street - on an evening when I'd brought BOOKS with me to tide me over being on my own I ended up getting involved in THREE seperate CHATS, it was actually rather LOVELY.
