Shadja drones on

A few words slung together

Picture ourselves

We’re going on a narrow boat in the Fens. The boat is called Silver Fox. Yes, it is.

Books will include Howard’s End, The Subterraneans, David Sedaris and Deke Leonard’s biogs. Also probably Philip Whalen. And Roots Of The Blues. Might even read them.

Soundtrack – mine – will be Man, of course, Bob Dylan, blues of all kinds, Jerry Newman’s recordings at Minton’s in New York. 1941, and Megatripolis. Oh and Elder.

Changed my mind already of course. Philip Whalen a bit big so he will have to be savoured at home. And remembered that Janis joplin will be big, as soundtrack and as book. Her bio by Myra Friedman.

Oh and Kid Ory, Red Allen and Muggsy Spanier of course.
