What's on your mind?
ocarolan: FLEET FOXES live from Sydney Opera House - NOW - https://www.facebook.com/FleetFoxes/videos/vb.24709128407/10155409621683408/?type=3&theater

ocarolan: Fleet Foxes finished now - almost 2hours continuous. Nice.

Martin: Did they still have your old guitar?

ocarolan: Sadly, Robin sold "my" Oberon after using for some time at home and to use for writing etc. When Fleet Foxes went out of sight he went back to Uni for a while - sold off a lot of gear via a Seattle music shop - I spotted an ad they had for the guitar -

ocarolan: -and let them know more about it, for which they were thankful. No idea where it is now!

Martin: It would be cool to be able to trace it - I wonder if it's ended up somewhere else famous....

Martin: Only 16 weeks now until Halifax - it comes around more quickly the older I get

ocarolan: ...once you're over the hill, you're bound to go faster, it's downhill all the way...

Martin: It seems so....just wish I had brakes sometimes

ocarolan: Am I going to be able to watch the QT special tonight with Jezza and Tezza without bursting a blood vessel? Perhaps I should do some guitar noodling whilst it's on to keep me calm(er).....

walkingdecay: I did my last gig last Friday. Got sick of being booked to play keyboards only.
Jun 6, 2017 13:51:53 GMT
ocarolan: ...at least you did get booked though, Pete!

walkingdecay: True, but on some gigs I felt as much programmer as musician, and wishing physical harm would befall the guitarist so I could take over was probably not a healthy state of mind. (I didn't really. Well, not entirely seriously.)

ocarolan: Hm, yes. Understand! Just think of the free evenings you'll have!

walkingdecay: The Arena:American Epic series is worth catching on iPlayer at the moment. Nice mini-portraits of the likes of The Carter Family and Mississippi John Hurt, though the "origins of steel guitar" story should be taken with a pinch of salt the size of Hawaii.
