Venue: The Labour Club (Website)
Event: The Black Watch
Location: 95-97 Charles St Northampton England NN1 3BG
The Black Watch are coming from Los Angeles to play a festival in Liverpool, their first trip to play in the UK. As a warm-up date, they will be playing at The Labour Club, Charles Street, Northampton NN1 on Friday 22nd October 2004. Support will come from Pat Fish and his Last Ditch Karaoke Playboys. The doors will open at eight o'clock and admission will be free to all. It's a Masters of Budvar International Special Joint. Hopla!
John came on solo and delivered a marvellous 45 minutes. The place filled up nicely as he played and he won the crowd over with a simple, direct and lovely delivery. His voice and guitar both sounded great and he played two or three well-deserved encores. I had forgotten just how good a song "Terrific" really is. No, really. I'll say it six times.
You know the rest. Large quantities of take-out Budvar, the usual suspects gathering at dead of night, nonsense getting talked. Agent Cooper set about demolishing the joint. Mr. Jack Daniels did much the same sort of a job on me.
Roll on November 5th...
