This week, the escalating-in-excellence Steve Abel has a go. His latest album is really good, and you’d buy it if you knew about how good it was. Here’s how good it is. Anyway, recovering from the torrential water attacks from nature which habitually bombard our fair capital, here’s Steve.
In a word, how’s your week?
What did you get up to last night and how was it?
Gig in North London at The Steeles with Dan Mangan. Good scene.
What’s for dinner tonight and who’s cooking it?
Very large bowl of miso and veg care of the Fujiyama in Brixton – superb! Ray cooked it apparently. Tomorrow I make Brazilian black beans and rice.
What have you listened to today and did you like it?
Forgot the stuff I didn’t like. Listened to some new Bill Callahan online and I did like it. Also The Specials Do Nothing‘ and Ghost Town (genius) and a Dennis Wilson track from ‘77 called Moonshine – lush, expansive, beautiful.
What’s your favourite/least favourite thing that’s happened this week?
Found a new chord for a new song – favourable. The least would be waiting cold and weary in the Camden night for the last bus to Brixton, though not complaining.
Hope you got dry quick and that the Brazilian black beans were a solid success, Steve! Hear, here.
