15-17 may

Had a great couple of nights. Bill Childish rocked the house.

Night number one was a Q and A session about art, Knut Hamsun and Dostoevsky among other things. Then he read selected poetry from "The man witht he gallows eyes"

Then Billy Childish & The Chatham Singers took the stage and played a bunch of blues and spirituals to a midsized but appreciative crowd. Night two Billy Childish & The Musicians of the British Empire rock a packed and wild crowd at Mono. (Same lineup as day one....and some of the same songs - played much louder) Two fantastic nights. Today he displayed his art at gallery Barabara Hansen. About 15 pictures, mostly large and on wood. Nice paintings, but too much for my wallet though.

I quite like this one. 2000 pounds, available on the website listed below.
Today is Norways constitution day celebration...I missed most of it. Too tired/hung over from the last two nights of fun. I'm gonna go to bed.
