SHUUUUUUUT THE FUUUUUUUUUUCK UUUUUUUUUUUUP !!!!
No really folks – shut the fuck up !! I wanted to run round the tables and the bar slapping people and shouting that this is RM FUCKING HUBBERT playing for you for free in a wee pub in Inverness so please, please shut up and bloody well listen !!
Then I realise that this is RM Hubbert playing for us all in a wee pub in Inverness on a Wednesday night, for free – therein lies the problem to a certain extent. Punters are punters whether they’re there to see the ‘act’ or just in for a pint ! There was an even mix between the two types tonight. The fans who sat or stood rapt in the music or the punters in for a beer who saw this as just another bloke with a guitar and paid no heed. Shame. Not to worry cos Mr Hubbert just got the hell on with it and treated those who were interested to a wonderful, wonderful acoustic odyssey – thems metal strings nae nylon !!
Sounded great but of course nothings ever simple when you shoot in Hoots – sounds great, looks well, red !! The photographers favourite light was in full effect tonight yet again…….hmmmmmm RED – fucking hate it but didn’t detract from the music. Guess what ? I wont be reeling off set lists or track titles cos Id be lying if I tried to get all knowledgeable on your asses. What I do got tho is some pictures of the very tallended man (tallend is copyright This Silent Forest, coined during a dyslexic predictive text twitter convo we had earlier today).
I only managed a quick hello/goodbye with RM at the end of the night as he was leaving – heading off into the night with his guitar case and Lidl back of merchandise. The Little Millers were hogging him post-set and I don’t mess with them cos they were in Shutter !! A very pleasant chap with a huge talent – hopefully next time there will be a greater percentage of attention-payers !!
I just love the simplicity of the statement on his website so I shall leave you with that and wish him all the best on his journey back to Glasgow – haste ye back and all that though…….
Hello. I am a guitarist from Glasgow in Scotland. I have
made a new record called Thirteen Lost & Found with
and about some of the friends I have had over the last
twenty years. It’s a little bit cheerier than my previous
album, First & Last.
Humble apologies for missing out on Kris and Andy Whiskys set in their support slot – they’re humble about it and deny being any good but I heard reports from elsewhere that said different – catch you next time chaps !!
