Tonight I was meant to be going to my first live gig for 10 months at the spooky church down the end of my road. Then on Monday night came the announcement that London was locking down again and the show - or at least the audience - got cancelled.
The artiste I was hoping to see was the mighty Piney Gir. While I can't be there in person she will be streaming her performance live on YouTube at 8.15pm GMT tonight, which is some consolation for me and a treat for the rest of you.
Today's selections come from "Geronimo" (2011) - my favourite of Piney's albums that I've heard -and "Jesus Wept" (2010). I would like to dedicate them both to our Prime Minister, who is doing a brilliant job in difficult circumstances.
"Oh Lies" - Piney Gir
"I'm Better Off Without A Piece Of A Shell Of A Man" - Piney Gir
Until I read this I thought Piney was male.I think I'm confusing her with PokeyReplyDelete
Possibly. Or Pinetop as in Pinetop Perkins?Delete
The 'mighty' Piney Gir is some claim. My interest is piqued cos I've just been playing a Christmas comp I made 7 or 8 yrs ago on which I included her A Christmas Song - an internet download only at the time I think. It's an arresting little Christmas ditty. Can't recall seeing anything by her in the racks but I've probably not been looking hard enough. Oh Lies is a good track and I'll be seeking her out in the new year. I downloaded her from you here and a couple of quid is off to charity for my cheek. Cheers!ReplyDelete
I admit to being prone to hyperbole. She is good thoughDelete
Ooops! Correction. Her track was Christmas Time and not as previously statedReplyDelete
