Last night I was in London Town™️ to see the enigmatic Hamish Hawk at the Scala.
His 2021 album Heavy Elevator got a lot of plays with me last year, and his new one, Angel Numbers was released on Friday. As such, I haven't had time to really immerse myself in the new material, but what a superb first gig of the year! A truly fantastic performance from Hamish and his band, a great crowd who were all totally engaged and no loud people behind me talking through the whole thing. I can't remember the last gig I went to when this wasn't an issue!
All songs were crowd pleasers, but The Mauritian Badminton Doubles Champion, 1973 in particular got the biggest roar of approval.
