Yesterday and the day before I took my camera to some gigs. Three, I think. Six bands? Something like that. Recommendations for iliketrains (weird projections, big guitar noise, and a strange man on horn), and The Hellset Orchestra (hammond organ, crazed string section, pogo-inducing), also happy to see the the Schla-la-las and The Thumb Quintet again and The Keyboard Choir for the first time. Good names, I don't need to describe them. Pictures are better anyway:
(There are lots more in the gallery here and a few favourites on flickr.)
This evening I found Andy's Blues for Godzilla tape filed in an as-yet unpacked book box, and listened to it while scooby doo played on mute (not sure what the story was about, but it involved a lot of puppies and an evil scooby twin). It's an odd mix tape -- a bit sordid, a bit sad, kind of domestic ... and, of course, it opens with Bedroom Behemoths, the mistersongs track Andy wrote me about gin, plastic dinosaurs and hairdye. It's really lovely.
