Loops win out

After an enjoyable gig at the Dalriada, I am reassured that a set containing loop & guitar synth may be quite acceptable to an ‘average’ non-muso audience after all. Ms Fi joined in on backing vox and stomping some kind of stick on the floor.

Today, three generations of grumblies (myself, Plague and my father-in-law) visited Celtic Park to watch the Hibees lose to Celtic. I thought my magic might protect them (I’ve never been to a live match where they lost) but no. Still it was an astonishing experience being in a stadium that size and hearing the roar of the crowd. We also saw Glasgow entrepreneurship at its best, arriving 10m before kickoff driving round the nearby industrial estate looking for a place to park the car, when out of nowhere a guy steps into the street and waves us into a car park, the completely empty car park outside a warehouse; his colleague helpfully points out an empty bay (there are several) and guides you in; and of course you have to pay these guys £3 for the pleasure. That’s a job, thought Plague – charge admission for a car park that’s nothing to do with you, with a cheery smile!  Of course you could refuse to pay but …

Anyway, here’s a pic Madame took of me in my office with my new cushion (yes it’s real and it refused to budge).

  1. RE cushion: Isn’t there a law against that? Funny though.
    That stick was a cardboard tube full of beer bottle tops I had been saving for some time.
    If you record Green Lights – can i do backing vox for you?

  2. I set out to your gig – got off at the wrong end of the esplanade, walked the wrong way down the esplanade, turned back when I’d run out of esplanade, it was raining quite thickly, the esplanade had gangs of drunk slightly menacing teenagers kicking along and I was wearing high-heeled shoes so gave up before I got to the Dalraida. Sorry to have missed it – see you some other time.
