Corn Mo

I could use the 53 minutes of Internet time I've got left on this ticket to write up my CoRo Gig Reports 2 & 3, but I don't think I'll bother with that now. Instead, I'll tell you about Corn Mo's performances, which seem to go down better with every show. He is definitely an acquired taste! The first night, when he opened the show in The Troubadour, people started to mutter pretty quick, and some in the first row even took the opportunity to text each other messages that said: "Erm..WTF?!" -- the next night though, the same people were smiling and applauding, and he definitely made some fans in Glasgow yesterday (me included). I can't wait to see him on stage again tonight -- we played the CD on the drive down from Scotland just now, and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Actually, we played his music on the way up from London as well (he'd been kind enough to burn a CD for Julia earlier), so when he started playing I already knew the words to most of the songs and could sing along enthusiastically; but the CD I have has very few of the songs he performs on stage this tour. That's fine, because I love I'll Be Your Platypus and I Wish You Were My Home, and all the others. There are some mp3s on his website (see Links section), but I don't believe they download well at the moment. He has been made aware of this by several people on this tour, and I'm sure he'll sort it all out as soon as he gets back, which will be one of these days (he's not sure of a ride back to London and the airport yet).

Apart from that, he's a really nice bloke...with perhaps a little bit of a mall fixation. Someone ought to tell him, really.

sadly the CD I got from him glitches *sobs*

Email him, I'm sure he'll send you another.

Common Ro were, as ever, fantastic

I know it was only four shows, but there hasn't been a single bum note in any of them. I'm so sad now that last night was the last one for we don't know how long...maybe I should start to drop my NYC friends some heavy hints again about me wanting to come over for a visit soon...
