You can concentrate on the ones you love

So, yes, I'm obviously not really here, because I am incredibly busy and utterly miserable and freezingly cold and so so much else, but I just wanted to quickly nip in and say that I am officially back in love with Stuart. Cough. And Stevie. And Sarah. And Chris. And, well, all of them really. Cough. What a lovely noise they make, even whilst coughing a lot and particularly when shadow-boxing dancing and playing the recorder. I can even, just about, forgive them for the, um, Norah Jones 'thing'. Sigh. Weep. They didn't play the song below tonight, but they did play it last night, see? I tell you, nights like this, you miss those people who appear to be both far away from you and, ironically, quite close to you like - well, like you just can't believe. Although, of course, Stuart can believe. He used to write about it a lot. When he was just a wee boy making albums about everything but love.

You can buy the new album here. Cough. A free and full live stream of the third and final Barrowlands show, on 21-12-10, is being broadcast via here (NPR). Cough.

  1. OK...we didnt get 'Dylan'.

    But 'If You're Feeling Sinister' and 'Lazy Line Painter Jane', complete with Ms Monica Queen as guest vocalist, more than made up for it.

    Way more.

  2. Can't help but agree. Both of those tracks worked really well in the live setting. It was 'Track and Field' I liked best though! Also, do bear in mind that neither of the B&S Barrows shows were as good as that time, back in the day, that I witnessed Elvis supporting Billie Holiday at the Apollo back in '48... ;)
