Blog: Marylebone

< previous next >
After meeting The Food In My Buffet for a cheeky CURRY in the Selfridges Cafe (it's on the 4th Floor there,it is ACE) I strolled up to Marylebone, only getting slightly lost on the way, to play at Freedom Of Expression. It's a GRATE gig to play, although Tim Who Runs It is cutting back a bit next year - here's me thinking I'm Mr Super Busy doing 70 gigs a year, he does about ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY! And he doesn't even get to PLAY at most of them, he's just the promoter!

I can't remember the name of the first chap on, partly because as soon as he came on I thought "Ooh, a young Elvis Costello!" then he said he'd got a cold from some of the children he teaches and my BRANE spent the next 20 minutes trying to get my BRANE around the idea of D McManus trying to teach STUDENTS. After him it was Superman Revenge Squad who was, as ever, GRATE, then I went on and did THIS:
  • The Peterborough All-Saints' Wide Game Team (Group B)
  • The Gay Train
  • It Only Works Because You're Here
  • If You're Too Turned On
  • Being Happy Doesn't Make You Stupid
  • The Lesson Of The Smiths

  • It was a slightly shorter than normal set because things were running a bit behind... though i can't complain as a lot of the behind NESS of it was due to me bringing on a HEAVILY extended talky bit with Mr T Eveleigh beforehand, during which I asked him the Three Questions he usually asks, and then went on A LOT about my moustache. Still, all seemed to go well and it was nice to do If You're Too Turned On and see the looks of RECOGNITION from the more mature gentlemen in the room!
