Went to the pubs tonight with my guitar player and his Dad and his nephew (our roadie). I love his Dad, he is a saxophonist from the showband era, and always has great stories to tell. I should probably stay sober and try to remember some of them, but it's hard when you're havin' fun!
So, lots of the black stuff was consumed, and a few Jack D's by the youngfella, (they just can't stick to the pints, can they?). Anyway, we got to talking 'bout gigs, and shit that happened, and stuff that clients ask you to sing, requests and such. And it happens I got an e-mail today with a request for me to sing a song with a string quartet no less. A song the Map had not before heard. But, I listened, and I did on first hearing, like said song.
So the Map will soon do his first piece with a classical ensemble.
I might even record it for posterity. Or Youtube even!
This is the song.
