daddy in kilburn

played a gig with the daddies last night at the good ship in kilburn. turned out to be pretty good and i think we played like the brutally harmonious bastards we've become.

top pic is the band who played before us. it wasn't so much that they wanted to be like razorlight. i think they might have actually thought they were razorlight. why lord why?

the other bands were variously:

- on first, a charming trio with microphone hair and NHS specs doing clanky acoustic stuff like the shins but messier.

- the last band, an emo metal act who might well have been very tight and emo-harmonical but by the time they were three hours late for soundcheck (with the drums) they could have been captain beefheart and his magic band and i still would have taken the offer of an early ride home in phil's van.

haha - sadly no.

i meant "white guy afro". think noel redding from the jimi hendrix experience. maybe not quite that expansive but you get the idea.

"giant spitguard" doesn't conjure up the most attractive picture but yeah, pretty much! big, round, curly and cheerful.

like a big old space helmet made of wool.
