  4:38am Michael of Cologne:

Hi Brian & everyone. I'm enjoying the current raga this sunny Sunday morning with the swifts doing their acrobatics and the pigeons just sitting around on the roof opposite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Brian D:

To the birds, Michael.
Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 4:40am Paulo AD:

Bonjour Fred :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am Scott67:

It was great Fred. He came in early to set up & sat & had a beer & a hamburger with us. We had a good chat, he said he's moved on from the smashing & slicing of glass. His music was quite lyrical, he stood amongst the crown while playing the glass. & afterwards he talked me through the amazing array of wires, dials & sliders he manged to build into a single Pelican Case.

@Scott: He also makes instruments from modified pinball machines. Sadly I missed that when he showed them in Paris
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02am Scott67:

That explains why there were some very Pinball kinda sounds amongst his performance.

β€œAnd so it goes”
  5:50am Toothgrinder Tom:

Hey Scott, congrats! I hope this new government is more to your liking.
  5:50am Michael of Cologne:

The swifts have completed their morning aerobatics and have disappeared for the time being, Brian. Even the pigeons have found something better to do for the moment. But they'll all be back later on, with the blackbirds that like to sing their evensong. Great program, and all the best with long-term COVID recovery!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51am Scott67:

Cheers Tom! It certainly is mate!
