Red Carpet Club, C Gates, Chicago O'Hare.

Toyah is at Chez Horse in Chiswick. Her yesterday was pretty terrible as, so it appears, it was for several other people of our acquaintance. Among other difficulties, she got stuck in the trails behind an accident on the M3: a car had hit a truck carrying gas canisters which began to explode. A 2+ hour journey to Deepest Dorset took her 5 hours.

This morning "Through The Keyhole" visited our home, and I had hoped to be with Toyah. I called home at 06.05 Seattle time but there was no answer, and assumed that The Little Horse had gone to the pub for lunch with the camera crew. Then, at 06.20, I knew she was back home, and called. "I've just come in. I was in the pub" she said.

On Sunday our local barman, a very friendly man, former parish councilor & worker at a record pressing plant in Leicester, slipped on a flagstone outside the village inn and fractured his skull. The staples in his head regardless, he was called in to help for an hour at lunchtime.

John Schaeffer of NPR's "New Sounds" has just called my cellphone. Soundscapes are returning to the Atrium of the World Financial Center this November for 3 days. Either 27/28/29 or 28/29/30.

This is one of my favouritist gigs of all time. Innocent ears which would otherwise not be exposed to (punished by?) the bleeping and droning of Frippspaces have an accompaniment to the their lunchtime, should they wish; plus an incentive to rapidly exit the building at the end of their working day. Those who are generous enough to give their support to attempts at musical take-off, attempts which carry no guarantee, have a superb space to enjoy regardless of aspirant musicianship; and in a space where the musical event is not mediated by commerce. At least, not directly. An irony given the location.

Now, time to file out and move to the gate.
