So in London I looked round for things to see and found Cafe OT. Great venue. Brisbane needs one. First night I saw Mathew Sawyer support Ryan Driver. Also an acapella [almost] singer Animateddog Nathaniel Robin Mann [that's what it said] whose recording I am still picking apart. I have worked out that I'm not that good at recording quiet stuff. The background sounds are too loud for the mics I use.

Two nights later back for Damo Suzuki who I missed in Barcelona. Support were the fabulous Sobameshi & Porno who I later discover are half of Bo Ningen who I now wish to see. Also supporting was guitarist Keiichi Miyashita’s MANDOG featuring drummer E-Da of Drum Eyes/Seefeel and one other guitar. After two support sets all appeared on stage with Damo Suzuki as his backing.
Sobameshi & Porno were absolutely great and I hope the recording does them justice.
