Shamballed

September 3, 2010

Just back from the mighty Shambala festival where I did an impromptu 20 mins at the Wandering Word tent, was empty to start but packed by the end.

Also entered the slam on sunday to try to win tix, but lost out to the mighty Anna Friedmann‘s highly polished poetics and Jeffry Johns rampant freestyle ramblethon … no shame!

The last few weeks have seen a major performance every weekend, from rocking Monkey Business on a Saturday night (7th Aug) to a mad 19 hour roundtrip to do 20 mins with Hammer & Tongue at the Edinburgh Festival (13th) to hosting WordSoundHavePower at the Others with Dave Pepper and Blabbermouth (21st). August has been a spectacular month … next week am off back to Malaysia to carry on the revolution … watch this space …

From Shambala, the following acts were stupendous –

Dizraeli & the Small Gods – folk-poetry-hop with crazy harmonies and amazing storytelling. Get yourself a good god!

Sound of Rum – Kate Tempest’s band, intense and moving. Check out Cannibal Kids and Prometheus … or anything she does really, its all blinding … and she is so so humble …

Plus I got a haircut … punkrock dreadlock!
