Swoon swoon swoon:
Sweet sweet sweet. I’m a big fan of Chris Garneau. I saw him play three times last year. The first was when I still lived in Ashford, so I had to trek to London. That was March 2008, at the Borderline. It was also the first show I went to by myself, awwh. Things have changed so ridiculously much since then. Amazing. I’m pretty lucky in that most shows I go to now there are usually friends or friendly folk there to be met. Anyway, the second time was at Camden Barfly and the third at the Luminaire. I think he’s a brilliant live artist. That video is particularly lovely. If you read quicker than Chris holds up the signs, stick with it. He plays a song after. The Leaving Song, which will feature on forthcoming El Radio. He played that song all three times I saw him. I love that song. The version in that video is with piano and quite jaunty. It’s usually slower and with harmonium. Beautiful.
