The response to yesterdays London Symphony, The Burnt Oak Boogie has been extraordinary. As I usually do on a Friday, we went for a curry in the Mill Hill Tandoori. As I walked in, one of the diners jumped up and congratulated me on the video and said it had caused a real stir, being shared far and wide.
My whatsapp and facebook messenger was also ablaze with well wishers, people telling me that the video had really hit the spot. I was also complemented on the song. I wrote the music to try and catch the vibe of the area, with a ska feel and a North London style rap over the top. It seems to have worked. My band, The False Dots, have a gig on Wednesday at The Dublin Castle, where we will be performing the song, which is also our new single. Check this out and find out what all the fuss is about.
It would be great to see as many of the readers of the Barnet Eye as possible. Tickets are only £5.50 which is a real bargain. The Dublin Castle is one of London's iconic grassroots venues. The beer is reasonably priced and you get a chance to soak up the atmosphere of a pub that helped launch such bands as Madness, The Killers, The Libertines and Blur. Also playing is Amaya - Progressive soul searching pop with a fine vocal presence care of the titular Amaya herself, whilst Amaya the band make a dark, expressive sound of Floydian portent. Fans of Kate Bush take note.
Why not come down and support one of Londons best venues and have a great night at the same time!
