Oh man, I have epic hayfever today. I think it’s because I went back to Ashford and got it there. Anyway, the weather was sweet and it made for a nice visit over to Northampton Square bandstand for a busking session. One (of the many) reasons why I love Bandstand Busking is because there are always lots of awesome folk to meet up with. One of the people I met today was Greg, who contributes to the tasty website Bridging The Atlantic. I also got to test out my new zooooooom lens. It reminds me of the Laura Hocking song Lola B’s Got Ultrazoom; this lens would be good for stalking people with.
Stalking aside, Kill It Kid were running late so Fanfarlo went first. I saw them for 4 songs at 229 after Dear Reader, but I was feeling ill and tired and it was freezing outside, so Adam and I took an early exit. I enjoyed their bandstand busking set alot, particularly their song Luna. I have to admit, I’ve listened to them before and it didn’t grab me. But listening now, I’m quite enjoying it. Particularly Luna. I loved the stripped down busking version, but the beefed out version has musical saw, and is therefore win-worthy.
After a short break Kill It Kid took to the bandstand. The band are on One Little Indian and I have done some promo work for their EP, so I was pretty excited to see them play. Intrigued as well, because the singer has such a deep, powerful voice and yet he looks so youthful and unassuming. But, POW! his voice is epic. You definately have to hear it live to truly appreciate it. I would definately like to see them play live again.
