chronicle: April 2011

Once the footbawl male voice choir fizzled out downstairs, Freedom Of Expression at The Green Dragon in Croydon kicked off with a bright burst of electronica from Gagarin, in part-tribute to his newly celebrated namesake. The trombone poetry set featured last autumn’s Larkin poem and four tangos. Wayne Myers deftly wound up the proceedings in the guise of Fit and the Conniptions.

The Spoonful of Poison event at The Urban Bar in Whitechapel presented a zoological variety of acts, including resident performers Dangerous T and Jude Cowan, the latter improvising songs from Reuters news bulletins, neatly complementing trombone poetry’s new batch of foundling poems. Sadly, the event became substantially more toxic than usual, due to a flunky’s inability to hold his drink, so we will be in no hurry to contribute again. Down the hatch!
