Chimes at Midnight
Just returned from seeing Nick Lowe performing a show at St Lukes which will be going out on BBC Four soon. Apart from his faultless crooning and his refreshingly soft guitar sound the highlight was the three piece brass section who came on to lend colour to three songs. On trombone was Chris Barber, who I make to be 77. Now having a cup of tea as I tap away at this and - what's that sound? - the milkman's just delivered! It's not yet midnight. What happened to coming home with the milk? Are we to have no cliches left?
