On Saturday I was at Glastonbury Festival with Alison Moyet, witnessing the Jeremy Corbyn frenzy and struggling with technical difficulties on stage, and now I am in a luxury hotel on the Palace Promenade in The Hague. Amazing where this job takes you sometimes; such contrasts in small timeframes. Although Ableton decided to reset all our midi routing in the hour before showtime, the Glastonbury show was really great – amazing crowd and lovely backstage area at Leftfield. Billy Bragg was a welcoming presence to everyone there; very inspiring to be around his unflagging enthusiasm and commitment.
Last night at Park Pop we managed to fix the issue with Ableton and the show was great. Looking forward to getting back into the studio for a couple of weeks before the next gig with Alison in July.
