I’ve been searching for a website, but haven’t found one. I did note, when I spoke with the band’s main man Antoine Bernollin, after the show, that they all pursue individual careers and only get together occasionally. They're all from the Loire region. The music was terrific: tightly organised, accessible, at times tuneful and at times merely reflective of that agitated mood of excitement and action you associate with Kerouac (the piece entitled ‘Neal’ particularly so).
We bought two copies of the CD: one to bring home and one for Carolyn Cassady. Bernollin was quite taken aback when I asked him to write a dedication to her on the case. He didn’t know she was alive.
In case I don’t get back to the French trip, let me add a couple of shots of the odd but splendid cathedral at
- odd because of the main tower, which seems to be a separate entity. Was it added to a previously existing fortification? If our hairdresser wasn’t about to knock on the door for our appointment at 0745h I’d Google it and find out…. Limoges
Oh well, back to that after a weekend in Cumbria. It's a house party to celebrate another sixtieth. It'll be nice to hang out with a few youngsters - and may give me a few ideas as to how to celebrate the arrival of my state pension this time next year.
