On the ward at Guy's Hospital



Don't know why I've never thought of doing this before, a great drawing opportunity I'll make use of on future visits. The NHS is on my mind a lot these days, it's under such threat of privatisation. I know it's not always perfect, I've had some frustrating experiences myself, but they're FAR outweighed by the fantastic care I've received. Love the NHS.

Front row scribble heap 8/2/18 Club Integral's fundraiser for Resonance FM

13 acts playing 13 minutes each. Seems that I was on a 'draw one skip one' policy that eve.

Bob Drake and his 3 minute / 50 second pop wonders

Mandolin and fiddle from the No Frills Folk Band
Quite loud and quite fantastic 'Two Horns' (with their umpteen effects pedals)

Glowering Figs
Strayaway Child. The phantom tin whistler on the right also had a pretty wooden shruti box, but alas it wasn't mic'd  up so we couldn't hear it being played. That's a new thing for The List then, to hear one being played live.
'Robin the Fog' : conjuring grand sounds from humble tape. Took me back to ye olde 'mending a cassette with sellotape' days.
