- Stuart Forester played a couple of songs on the Appalachian dulcimer, including a lovely version of the Lakes of Ponchartrain. He will be playing a full set next time, so make sure you get along. Here he is at an earlier Old Nun's Head gig:
- Paul Garside had some nice indie-poppish songs, including one called Utopian Idealists inspired by this picture from the recent student protests (it shows media savvy students from Dunraven school in Streatham surrounding a damaged police van which they believed would be used to discredit their protest).
- John Crow performed songs from his new album Goose & Crow: Spirit Songs
- Simon Bromide coped admirably from some inebriated interruptions, and sang a song about getting to like Sonic Youth.
- Karla sang some synth-accompanied numbers, joined by Nigel with some Peter Hook-style basslines.
The next session is on Friday 25th February, according to Nigel:
'Headlining this months is the wonderful Bromide: indie hailing from the distant Woolywood hills (Plumstead). Marvel at the shambolic majesty of this combo. You will ask yourself 'How do they do it.
Stewart Forester is a troubador from the plains of Mitcham who will delight with his command of the DADGAD and the dulcimer. His folk crusade is gathering momentum; see him now before he is on the telly..... I'll play an early set too....'
