David Sinclair Trio

  Tres Hombres
We had a lot of fun opening for our MySpace friends Pezband from Chicago and The Sky Pirates from London at the Borderline last Sunday. It could have been a festival site outside, what with the hot dog stands and the bank holiday crowds sloshing along the flooded pavements in Charing Cross Road. Inside we at least managed to keep things dry, and a bit more intimate.
Indeed this was one of the most intimate gig experiences I can remember. Our third time at the Borderline, and it was like a rock'n'roll version of Noah's Ark, with the bands - all trios - going in three by three while the rest of the world melted away in the rain. We debuted a new song, London Dust, written during the "summer" which we had here in April. "The sun's in the sky and the city's run dry". Good to keep it real. And we also gave another new song, Just Struck Gold, its first public airing, to immediate and monumental acclaim.
Those are two of the numbers which we started recording during an epic two-day session at Fortress Studio in N1, just before the Borderline gig, and it was great to play them again in the ultimate one-take situation of a gig. As always, it all went by so fast, but George and I hung around for the Sky Pirates and Pezband, both of whom kicked out the jams with righteously rocking conviction. I've seen the Pirates twice before, so it was great to hang out with these guys and to meet the Pezes - a bit like our time last year, when we toured with the Favours and the Wrens from New Jersey.
Next gig is the Pressure Point in Brighton, where we are playing on Sunday June 10. Ahead of that, we are booked in for a return visit to the Pete Jones show on Brighton's Radio Reverb on Wednesday (June 6). Tune in at 7pm on on 97.2FM in the Brighton area or you can hear it online on their website. It's gonna be a South Coast happening.
