black cab music for when the bandages come off
It's on my list of things to do. Getting the recent Amanda Palmer album.
I heard it a couple of weeks ago. I've held the album, but not my own copy yet. This is one of the ones where I'd buy a physical copy, rather than just a download.
So my surprise to be in a black cab when the cabby switched on the radio and there was a new track from the album being performed live.
Not the typical cab soundtrack, but one that lasted for more or less the whole journey.
And in my mind a whole lot longer.
Here's the vid from the album launch party - it gives an impression of an evening with Amanda.
Amanda's set with the Grand Theft Orchestra starts at about 15:00. For a quick look try around 33:12 where the band all swap around during "Missed Me". Or better still watch the full 2h35.
