Here’s a list of songs that generally summed up 2014 (in chronological order). There’s more, but that’s mostly classical and for another day. Ambrose & His Orchestra – A Little Kiss Each Morning Home studio days, tea, nature, sunny mornings, trips to Oxfam and Oxford. St. Vincent – Digital Witness I wondered why nobody knew about […]

Thanks for your birthday wishes. Fifty three and by the sea. Nick
Last night, Matthew, I became George Harrison for an hour or two. It felt good. I bend the strings in similar places, pull similar gently weeping faces, weave up and down the trellis like Jon and Vangelis. Pink panthers in pursuit of the finely tailored suit. We weave a pretty similar parachute. I doubt I […]
Popped up to London for a haircut. Redchurch St – neat neat neat. Lovely lunch at the Albion Cafe – sunny. Went to buy some drum sticks in Shillingford St – brushes and hotrods. Screen On The Green for a super mean but supremely well made film – Blue Ruin. Back to the little blue […]
