Well I’m one year older today and I’ve also been writing this diary for just over a yeah as well. I think I’m supposed to write something insightful about how I’ve grown over the year and what I’ve learnt. Sod that for a game of soldiers, I’m off to watch a DVD and eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut 😀

I went to see the John Butler Trio last night at the Brixton Academy. This was an amazing gig, the first few songs were a bit disappointing as the guitar was bit quiet, but after that was sorted out the gig took off. It just kept on getting better and better; the passion and energy from all three was amazing. I particularly enjoyed the drum solo that must have lasted at least eight minutes, at one point the drummer was sitting with his back to the audience, playing some drums behind him, while still playing the bass drum with his foot reversed, amazing. Stand out tracks included Zebra, which really got the crowd going as well as the sublime Ocean.

I saw a very cool band called Spoken Groove at Soul Survivor. They are a two piece Peter Nevland and Paul Finley. Paul play some amazing acoustic guitar, while Peter is a poet. He moved between speaking, rapping and singing throughout their set, which included various hilarious songs as well as some incredibly moving and intelligent pieces. I bought their first album “Acoustic Spoken Groove” which is very funky in places, if you like something a bit different I’d recommend you check them out.
Conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
