John Sinclair, Charles Shaar Murray and Buffalo Bill Smith: The Delta Sound
Last night, Charles Shaar Murray and Buffalo Bill Smith played at The Oval Tavern, Croydon, UK (12th March 2009). With a special guest appearance by MC5 legend John Sinclair who recited his poem, The Delta Sound.
CSM playing slide guitar (a resonator and Telecaster), and Buffalo Bill on harp, recreate the Delta Blues experience for those of us too young and too British to have had much contact with the original. It was a great little gig; big on atmosphere and enjoyed by an appreciative audience.
John Sinclair, in town for a series of gigs, came to watch but stayed to play. And most welcome it was, too.
UPDATE: John Sinclair performs this afternoon in Dalston's Café OTO with various guests including Charles and Bill, and our good mate Gary Lammin. 2pm, Saturday 14th March 2009. 18-22 Ashwin Street, E8. Silverlink Rail: Dalston Kingsland
