Phil and Aly were on top form last night - playing faster then ever in fact. Mostly the same tunes and stories, but there were a couple of new items. Strangely, there was almost nobody I knew in the audience. The support were the House Sisters three students off the folk degree course here - they were good : fantastic technicians but needed a bit more spirit in the music I felt. (and I don't mean the grouse that P&A were drinking)

I'm learning Jordu so I went looking for info on Duke Jordan who wrote it and discovered he only died at the end of last year. What a wonderful tune to be remembered by too.

T'interweb may be becoming boring and repetitive or maybe it's just the weblogs I read. I've now seen the blood puddle pillows on 5 sites, the 100 tons of explosives I posted yesterday on another 5, I can't count the number of people linking to the Landlord video (which I don't find even vaguely funny BTW). Must be curmudgeon Friday or something.

I'm on a gig mailing list, and a message arrived with the following in it: "Researching this gig, I downloaded a recent XXXX re-mix – possibly the most tedious nine minutes of music I’ve heard since the Big Ben Banjo Band packed away its instruments for the last time. Ominously, the venue is to be set out “club style” – presumably in an attempt to recreate that moment in the 1970s when vibrant jazz-funk metamorphosed into disco pap. But don’t let me put you off."

I was changing the strings on my mandolin last night and I decided that there has to be a market for a string changing service : someone who'll come round to your house and do all that horrible and tedious stuff, and probably give the instrument a good clean as well. After all, people with pianos all use piano tuners so why not? So long as the changer didn't play better than you it would fine.
