Went to see the Belgian Stuff at Rough Trade, and although it is not really my cup of tea I enjoyed a couple of song in the set, especially their finale...
After being held up elsewhere (you know meeting people and hanging out)
I managed to catch the last hour (all they way to midnight) of the Island Experiment at The Paradise by Way of Kensal Green, which has an extremely quick changeover of artists and always provides for some good music.
Was really looking forward to seeing him perform live (heard about him on BBC6 when I was in Ljubljana and thought I will get to take a photo of him one day) and he sure didn't let us down. I also loved the way he took his time (and I really mean took his time) to speak to absolutely anyone who wanted to speak to him after the show. Next time let's go and grab some beers, whatdoyasay?
Following the family get together lunch in Tunbridge Wells (which for some reason coincided with the sex festival) I set off for a little drive around the countryside. In Tonbridge I saw this old man sort of hitchhiking on the side of the road, so I stopped - isn't that the right thing to do? You can't just drive past, can you? He wanted to go to a village nearby and as I really didn't have a plan I said I would drive him there... After a few miles, he said that we are going to pass a really special church very soon and that I should go and see it sometime. As soon as he told me there are some special windows in the church I asked him: Are they the ones by Marc Chagall? (I had been meaning to go and see them one day, but on this day I had no idea I was so close to them) He replied that they were, so I said I would go and see the church as soon as I dropped him off... But he said well let's go now, it is on the way anyway... So we did.... And as we where there he told me all about the local family and the story behind the windows... I would tell you all about it, but I am sure that if you go there you will meet this old man hitchhiking somewhere nearby, so just pick him up and let him lead the way while he tells you all the local stories.
