A new venue tonight, The Beaufort in Raglan and it all started disastrously with a song abandoned! I played a request for my lovely wife, ‘I Sat By The Ocean’ by Queens Of The Stone Age, and had a complete lyrical brain fart. Now I forget the odd word from time to time but this must have been painful to watch. After taking it on the chin I got straight into a new song I had written called ‘The Hand Turns Red’. This is song five of ten that I’m writing for each open mic night. I think it’s possibly the best so far and it went quite well given the previous disaster.
My second song was a modern rock classic, ‘Newborn’ by Muse. I think it translated quite well onto acoustic. It was a good opportunity to really the flex the pipes! There was no time to go around again so we got an early finish. Next date is on Sunday at the diving centre again.
