Hub session
For them that’s interested, here are some photos taken at tonight’s 6 Music band rehearsal in the famous Hub, where the like of Kasabian, Paul Weller, Beck, The Guillemots, Primal Scream and Yo La Tengo have played. (We are not called Momentum, but if we were going to play the wine bar circuit with our cover versions, it would be the right sort of name.) Only Mark, our bassist, was missing. Our first gig – the 6 Music Christmas party – is next Wednesday. We’ve added Sympathy For The Devil to the set, and dropped Bennie And The Jets, because even if you get that right, it sounds wrong. Highlights tonight included White Man, Mr Blue Sky and Rehab. Wish us luck. For me, it’s like being 17 again.

From left: Jax (vocals), Verity (used to work at 6 Music, not actually a member of the band, just dropped by to break one of the maraccas), Jude (vocals), Gideon (guitar, vocals), Mike (guitar, vocals).

From left: Gid, Mike, Jim (keys, vocals – frankly, the creative kingpin, our musical director and player manager), me (drums).

A view from behind our backing singers, the John Sugar Babes (which is only funny if you work at 6 Music – ha ha!)

This is a close-up of myself and Jim, concentrating hard, trying to sound like the MGs. Nice branding!

Hmmm. I think that looks like a flourish.

Oh look, here’s some famous bloke playing in the same hub. But did he do Town Called Malice – I think not.
