So I was sitting at home looking for something to do on Friday night and after checking a few potential gig Facebook events, I was surprised to find out that some good friends of mine were playing a gig at Pony. They were only the opening act and so didn't really advertise it much but I decided to head along anyway, as they're always a lot of fun to see live, and I had nothing better to do. I might be biased because they're friends of mine, but I think they're a really good live band. And you should go and see them one day. They're called Sheriff, and here's their brief but awesome performance from a typically loose Friday at Pony. I thought the sound in the venue was pretty average but it's actually turned out alright. As you can hear Jimi explaining before What You Want, they shot a film clip for that song a couple of days later, and without a doubt it was one of the most fun things I have ever been involved with. Can't wait to see the finished product.

There were other bands on the lineup of course, but I was only really interested in recording Chico Flash. And then by the time they got onstage it was really late and I was a little bit drunk and I couldn't be bothered. In hindsight I do regret that. It was a really interesting performance featuring a guest appearance from some saxophone player known as the Blowfisch. It was all completely improvised and some bits didn't quite work, but on the whole it sounded pretty good. Or maybe that was just because it was nearly 2 in the morning and my sense of judgement about such things was a little bit skewed. Anyway.
