I'm rather amazed how much stuff I've accrued over the last four and a half years. When I think of the tons of stuff I've lugged up and down stairs I get perhaps a slight idea of what an ant must feel like. Drudgery day after day lugging dead stuff around.
However, if you are a terminally lazy beetle and you round a corner to find an elephant or wildebeeste has just carked it, what goes through the mind?
…is probably an educated guess. Followed by
"Why couldn't it have been a mouse?”
For those expecting her to be the breathy jazz chanteuse that has won her Grammy awards and million-selling artist…they were in for a surprise.
She and her band were dark. Tom Waits dark. In fact she covered a couple of his songs (as well as tunes by husband, Elvis Costello, and even Bing Crosby) to a backdrop of period film clips and also - incongruously - The Clangers and Stingray!
She played for over two hours without a break and the hushed and reverential audience including us lapped it up.
It was also nice to go to a show where nobody on stage felt it necessary to yell
"LET ME HEAR YA SAY YEAH"!
Best of luck with the moving, Dark Lord. I'll send Eric Sykes and Tommy Cooper around to help out...
You played a song on Weds morning approaching 5am by an artist called Rebekah .... can't remember her full name or the name of the song. I wonder if you could help.
I've had a look, and the only match I can find is "How" by Regina Spektor, played as the penultimate track on Wednesday morning. Hope this helps...
That's the one....thanks
