I happened to be wandering through Borders when Dave Graney, Clare Moore and Bill Miller were setting up for their in-store gig a little later on, so I came back to watch. I'll admit that I hadn't listened much to the previous album Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye - it hadn't grabbed me much - but I still have a soft spot for Dave's suave storytelling, and the performance certainly convinced me to buy a copy of the CD, which he signed for me afterwards. I was quite impressed by Bill's nice little mood-setting electric guitar twiddling in between Dave and Clare.
A friendly guy called Hugh struck up a converstaion with me afterwards, based on seeing the Fall badge I had on my bag. His Fall collection lies somewhere in the mid-30's, while mine's only in the mid-20's - you have to defer to somebody who's obviously rather committed. He mentioned he DJ's at 161 down on High St on Thursday nights - "I even play The Fall," he said - so I might try and pop in sometime.
Hugh asked Dave about the whole in-store gig thing, to which Dave replied "well, a lot of our fans don't want to come and see us at pubs." I guess when your target demographic has aged with you...He handed us both a freebie copy of the Rock 'n' Roll is where I hide CD single, from back in the "number 1, king of pop" days.

I may not (so far) run the kind of blog that posts social conscience linkage - other friends seem to have it covered better than I could manage (yes, I'm aware that's no excuse), but this doesn't mean that I don't care about the State of ThingsTM.
