This Week’s Field Recording: “Flame” Divan Du Monde – ParsPosted: June 11, 2012
Unlike a lot of the acoustic-ish versions of the songs, where we took them back to how they were born, Flame came into the world fully formed in shiny nylon, with a key-change and everything! So we took it elsewhere for these gigs, a little bit country, veering dangerously close to reggae if we get the tempo wrong…or so Phil says.On this night in Paris, there was a snowstorm which cancelled a lot of public transport so thank you to all those who made it. Driving in and finding parking in Montmartre is a ballache at the best of times, and those hills were made all the more fun by the ice and snow…wreck the renter!!
