Folk-Punk Legend

As I said yesterday I went to see my friend Karl – described on the posters as a “folk-punk legend” – play a bar last night. There were about half a dozen supporters there from the department, but the good thing is some random kids seemed to get quite into it too. He apparently recorded an album years ago, I might even have to get it!

Admittedly, he did have to pad things out with a few covers – including a hilarious poetry reading, ‘Sweet Child O’Mine’ by Axl Rose! – but his own songs are pretty good too. My favourites are the one about time travel (“take me back”) and “you think you’re the only panda in town?” I don’t know the real names, but I guess they’re named after the choruses…
