So, my boy Colin went to see Leonard Cohen in Dublin last night. He rang me from the place. It sounded amazing.
I shan’t be seeing Leonard Cohen, as I am financially deficient. Bah!
Still, I got to see my Dad today. And I will see my Mother tomorrow! Entirely unconnected, of course, but still.
Two stills! We are lucky, eh?
I revisited an old song that never got recorded today. I have a new hard drive. It makes me able to do things of that nature. This song I revisited, I started to write it in ’05. It is called There Used To Be Cities. It is in a time signature I do not recognise, as I am an untrained musician, and it is much better than all the songs that ended up on When We Were Young. It is a tricky, delicate song. Perhaps it won’t be finished until 2015. I was once amazed, and confused, as to how it took Leonard Cohen ten years to write Hallelujah, but I am beginning to start to understand that kind of process now.
Big up Colin! I hope you had a wonderful time.
