I'm feeling "visual" this morning......



So a couple of photos. One photograph, one phone-o-graph(above) and one scan. Not much else going on here, not many opinions to spout forth.....Monday is a pundit free zone.

Above shot is from Saturday night, it's the blackboard and lurid paint in front of a pub in Sydney that still supports bands, The Bridge Hotel in Rozelle. I went and saw a band called Transtar who a friend at work is managing. They write complicated songs without the usual verse, chorus, verse chorus, bridge, verse, chorus, deal. Some industry bigwigs were along for the gig to see if they're worth the time and investment, haven't heard how it went yet. But they're very good, remind me of early Radiohead.

  • Being a Balmain boy born and bred, I have spent many a happy night at the Bridge in the company of The Mighty Reapers and Bondi Cigars through to Louisiana Red and Screeming Jay Hawkins. Still a fine establishment.

  • Howdy stranger.

    My friend who used to play and do sound there mentioned the Bondi Cigars and how on a Saturday there would be a band in the main bar and a band in the "black room" there would be a crowd of people moving from one room to another.

    He also mentioned he knew Alex LLoyd when Lloydy was in his early teens, apparentlt he used to hang around outside, listening to the music and cadging cigarettes!

  • It wasn't until a year or so ago that it was pointed out to me that Alex Lloyd was the kid at Balmain High a few years younger than me who used to busk outside the Balmain markets on a Saturday. He's lost some weight since then, but obviously his determination paid off.
