It begins to tell.....
...'round midnight, midnight...
|Musician clocking off time|
|Les Mesures Désespérées ont joué la musique pour les personnes françaises et anglaises hier soir.|
We arrived at six o'clock to set up and kicked off around 7.30 while the partygoers had their meal. To allow civilised bilingual conversation, we played a couple of low key sections. Actually in many different keys, but...oh, well, you see what a late night does to your metaphors. For these sections we had clarinet, bass and guitar, followed a few songs by Tessa with bass, guitar and keys.
We were then completely upstaged by the appearance of a new young french singer...
|The Yealmpton Choir sing "Sloop John B"|
|The band can't resist joining in|
|It was the best conga achieved in a Desperate audience so far!|
|Four to the bar (their usual destination)|
|That's not your mike, Tessa!|
