@vince-black and I were concerned whether we had a quorum so we roped Alfred E Neuman into the mingle at the Brunswick Green in inner err Brunswick. Obligatory music t shirts donned (Steve Earle and a Folk Festival) we chatted music though suggesting Richard Thompson was overrated was perhaps notthe best topic to open the batting with given Vince’s blog name comes from an RT song.
After the usual topics – Word mag, vinyl v CD, whither assorted bloggers, why is Van Morrison such a prick etc we repaired to the adjoining parlour where a rather excellent local jazz singer Michelle Nicole was doing a free gig of audience requests with a band featuring drums, upright bass and 2 horns count em.
I’d had a long day so I left Vince to see the second set solo.
Hopefully we can muster more Afterworders the next time someone suggests a gathering.
