Trombonicle 50 / autumnals

cocktail drumImagine that: 50 Trombonicles already.

It was great to be back in action at Scaledown again, in the alarmingly pricey King & Queen, where the Trombone Poetry set included selections of poems from Beetles and Robots plus a few spontaneous numbers. 

Also on the bill (with genre descriptions courtesy of Scaledown) were Arthur Clark Collective: anti-folk post-britpop; K.S. and the Mystery Jet Set: lo-fi outsider country-like rock (played at half-mask); Nick Haeffner: psych-pop; Swilly: insensitive singer songwriter; Garlumindra (in lieu of Gardyloo Spew): electronica (with ornamental clarinet). As they say, you had to be there, and a lot of people were, despite the monsoon.

This month brings yet more pizza and, behind the scenes, the beginnings of a revival of The Blowpipes: new tunes and new players to rehearse. New gigs tbc (to be confirmed, or, to use the old alternative, to be cancelled).
