A Smile and a Ribbon, Skeleton Bob - The Winchester Club - Woodside Social

First on, and halfway through their set when I arrived were Skeleton Bob, "They did what they did well and weren't too affected" That's what Katie surmised. A little bit country I guess. They've lost a little since Joe90 on bass left last year.

A Smile and a Ribbon, were on next. "Aw man, they have a melodica" - Tom

There's a guy with a camera who looks remarkably like Richard from Sounds of Sweden.

"Where are you from?"

It started very twee, but the tempo changes seemed a bit disjointed. Is the drummer drunk... ooh, cute glokenspiel player.

There are people in the crowd singing along, they know the words.

Being twee isn't an excuse for bing shit.

Explanations of who's in the band isn't enough if the sound's poor and from where I was sitting, it sounded boomy and out of tune.

Ooh, Robbie has stormed out in disgust.

Oop, the camera chap is on a microphone doing backing doo wop noises, that garners them extra plus points.

That's got to be the first time I've used the word 'garner' in years. I used to have a music teacher called Miss Garner, she was hott and cool too.

It sounds cacophonous, like the back row of music class. My back row chums, like Jim Jam Garcia and Saddam Haddad, would be proud that such a band could get a gig like this.
