Rambler’s best concerts of 2009

Tim Rutherford-Johnson has posted his list of the five best concerts of 2009. Awesome list. Opening of the mouth was certainly about the finest thing I saw all year, too, but it’s a shame TR-J was unable to stay for ELISION’s Braxton excursion a couple of nights later.


Radio silence

I must apologise for what has been a few months of non-posting. Since my last post, the following things have happened:

1. moved to Huddersfield
2. went to Paris for 3 weeks
3. back to Huddersfield contemporary music festival
4. witnessed the invention of the poetry of the future
5. went back to Paris
6. got married
7. returned to Manchester
8. it snowed
9. threw some snowballs at H
10. broke my arm

So, as you can see, I’ve been busy (and I’m typing all of this left-handed). On the cards for the next seven days is:

1. Christmas
2. Go to London
3. Move to Berlin for the foreseeable future
4. New Year

Once all of that’s out of the way, I hope to be posting far more frequently again – there’s a lot to talk about, particularly with reference to the HCMF – but until then, have a Merry Annual Gift Day, and a Happy New Year.
