Hello fellow Campers!
We just got home from the Launch of Attic Jam the album party at the Pigalle
Club. It was an old style American supper club on the corner of Piccadilly
Circus. The invite was for 7 p.m., but doors opened 7.30 for a 8.45 kick off.
We where one of the first people through the door and head down to a front
table. We where directly across from the Royal Box. We got the first table on
the side and shared the table with Ross Halfin, Nicola Joss, David Starck and
a few other friends. Rachel hit the stage only to announce Pete was up
first. He played Drowned. He changed alot of the lyrics and was interesting. He
was in good form on the acoustic guitar. Then Rachel introduced Ed Harcourt and
wife Geeta. They played 3 songs including Last cigarette. Geeta played great
violin whilst Ed played piano and a distorted vocal sound on the second tune.
Next up was Rose Hill Drive. They need haircuts. The lads played 2 tunes. I
think one was Brain Novocaine. They sounded like an acoustic Led Zep. Next
was the hostess-Rachel. She played Blue by Joni Mitchell at the end of that
tune Rachel said "We like a few bum notes, It's real". Then she played
Motherfucker. Jerry Hall screamed out in appreciation for that song from her front
centre seat. The Magic Numbers where next. There was only the 2 girls and the
singer (the drummer sat in the audience). They played Take a Chance, Long
Legs, and the song called A new number. Then Pete performed the Acid Queen. He
said "I already owe a million (English) pounds, dead loss for me tonight".
Then he commented that after playing Greyhound girl 17 times on the last tour,
he wanted to play something completely different but he decided to play
something from Tommy. Then the final act was The Kooks. There where only 2 Kooks.
Are there any more Kooks out there? They played Sofa, Hat full of love, ooh
la and Pretty Petticoat (?). Unfortunately, the crowd was pretty pissed and
was very noisy and chatty by this stage of the show. Then our Host Pete joined
the Kooks for the final number. He was a bit angry/joking at the same time
when he said to the audience that "It's good that your drinking MY beer for
free", but please be quite! Rachel then closed the evening with her special
thanks to everyone. Please go and by the ITunes now! Mikey, Rene and
Shaun(Mikey's older brother) where in the audience. Mikey did not perform. All in all a
one and half hour set to highlight this new download album went down without a
hitch. Thanks again to Pete and Rachel.
