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?


  1. Let's have some new cliches.

    Or is that a cliche as well?

    I'm sick of these secret, BBC only, journalists only, fan club only shows. But record companies know what they're doing, don't they? Because journalists are so grateful to be invited, and want to be invited to the next one, they always get reviewed in the papers, and they always get reviewed well.

  3. You're within your rights to feel aggrieved about shows you can't go to but don't ever make the mistake of thinking it's all a record company plot. Most record companies aren't capable of plotting anything.
