The first of an occasional special treat. This recording is not mine but done by user rockola. Rockola does recordings irregularly and he doesn't think his output justifies a blog of his own so I have agreed to post suitable recordings of his from time to time. His first then is a nice recording of Mark Seymour recently at The Troubadour. I look forward to his anticipated Les Claypool set,
In his own words then here's rockola:
Mark Seymour played the Troubadour on 8 Oct 2009, in acoustic duo form,
with Cameron McKenzie on 2nd guitar and backing vocals. The Troubadour
was quite full, which of course doesn't take that much - it must be one
of the tiniest venues in Brisbane. Maybe 100 people in attendance? Also,
I was probably the only one there who didn't know all the words to Holy
As this was my first time out with my new rig, I didn't get a proper
recording of the support act (Asa Broomhall). There's a slight drop in
sound quality during the encore, due to operator error - still learning
how to use the gadget. Throw Your Arms Around Me is incomplete, you can
actually hear me walking out of the venue while they're still playing.
