he tweeted the other week that someone tried to pay him for merch via paypal but he didn't notice that the transaction didn't go through. He was appealing to the person to get in touch so it could get sorted. A good few heads stepped in and offered to chip in offset the loss. Casiotone/Advance Base fans are sound.
Aww, that's really lovely. Also, was a great gig, worth driving to Dublin.

Anouar Brahem (with Dave Holland, Nasheet Waits & Django Bates) in the NCH. Very mellow middle eastern tinged jazz, it was excellent. As seems to be the norm in the NCH there was a serious sound problem - in this case the star of show's oud was barely audible.

I don’t know what’s up with the sound guy there. Couldn’t hear Gavin Bryars’ double bass a couple of months ago.

the problem is the room. only decent sound I've heard there was for stars of the lid and I'm pretty sure they brought in a load of auxiliary equipment.
Generally I’ve found it excellent until the last year or so. General classical stuff sounds good any time I’m there and the sound for contemporary and Perspectives performances used to be great, I wouldn’t have said SOTL were unique in that.

It probably varies depending on your position in the room too. The sound last night was beautiful for the piano, drums and bass - really pristine and lush, except your man was too quiet.

D1 Records 25 Year Anniversary in Tengu last night was just amazing. Dechord was my own highlight - but the whole thing was just so excellent - everything about it. Wish it happened every month, or even bimonthly :love:

this is how out-of-touch I'm getting with stuff. I can't tell which of the above is the band and which is the venue. 🤷‍♂️
