The Social Event Of The Year
Mr S Rayner’s 40th birthday – the social event of the year (so far). The evening began with a short but rather good set from Chris TT, one of the many Magoo alumni in attendance – whose normal rider requests either a picture of Tony Benn or failing that someone who appears in the West Wing, (which is why “The Benn Diaries, 1940-90” and the “The West Wing Script Book” appear on the right of your picture).
Then Magoo took the ‘stage’ opening with a quick rendition of “Happy Birthday” and following up with a fabulously fast and furious set of new and old. Highlights for me included “Queen Of The 8-Bus Singers” (which I think Chris TT originally played on when it was recorded for “The Soateramic Sounds Of Magoo”) and new(ish) ones “Dear Johnny”, “Force 10 Navarone” and “Memaids Made Me”.
Recording for the next album(s) starts soon – start spreading the news.
