Saying goodbye to 2011
Last gig of the year. It was freezing cold last night at The George Inn in Brixworth. The evening started a bit slowly, but it didn’t take long to warm up when the OCR reached for their gear and shot ‘Broken Arrow’ at the audience. Slim Williams had once again the opportunity to take his fiddle to give a folk note to the legendary folk tale of ‘Charlemagne’. Filthy Rich also provided the back vocals for the song and proved that he has definitely learnt how to pronounce the name of the unfortunate rooster. A couple of covers this time: RL Burnside’s ‘Ms Maybelle’ and Rolling Stones’ ‘The Last Time’. Encore required and there came ‘Indian Territory’, by far my favourite – I think I’ve listened to the demo at least 10 times in the last couple of days and I never get tired of it. Hot stuff!
