Last night I went to: "Ray Davies Presents: Peter Harris - A Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy" at Konk studios (49 Church Lane, N8) just half an hour from my house! The show is open Monday to Friday 4pm - 8pm till the 7th of December but it's probably best to book an appointment with firstname.lastname@example.org rather than just turning up. Before The Kinks Ray was a student at the Hornsey School of Art and recently he curated a Meltdown festival on the South bank. This show is his personal pick of Peter's paintings. As a special treat Ray came and gave a little speech about how much he respected Peter's work and then performed a track from The Muswell Hillbillies album called "Here Comes The People In Grey"

The Roar From Behind is the debut album by Piper's Son and I think it's the best collection of original songs by a new band that there's been for decades. Singer-songwriter Thom Driver has found himself a brilliant team of musicians and the results of their collaboration are an absolute delight. Hearing The Roar From Behind brought back memories of listing to albums such as Little Creatures (by Talking Heads)The Head On The Door (by The Cure)and even Raindogs (by Tom Waits) for the first time. There are so many great ideas, original lyrics and charming, inventive sounds featured on this C.D that I'd recommend it to pretty much anyone.
