Gooden evening! I am a little delayed in writing this but even more delayed in writing about my epic Ani DiFranco adventures – they are forthcoming. So, Bjork failed to make the Premiere of Biophelia Live – slightly gutting, a bit like having a 99′ without the flake (I quote myself). As the credits were coming up at the end, the rep from BFI and the director etc grabbed the mic and begged us not to leave (sounding intenionally more dramatic than it actually was) they apologised for the sound – I felt so bad for them.
I thought it was a little strange that during Crystalline (which has one of the most incredibly hectic and wonderful drum parts in) sounded more prominent on vinyl than in a hi tech cinema. They are going to screen it again with the instrument sounds actually coming out of the L-R speakers. Massive co-incidence but the day after seeing this I went to the house that Bjork’s drummer Manu Delgado used to live in and only found out after telling them this story – they had previously mentioned they lived with a drummer, no idea it was to be him. Love that kinda thang!
I look forward to seeing the film again, introduced perfectly by David Attenborough as a combination of music, nature and technology – or words to that effect. Bliss.
Playing at the 12 Bar tomorrow night – a venue I have always wanted to play! Gotta get in there before the rich bastards get it demolished. Grr!
