speed of things

pretty good show, not quite up to last week but excellent anyway.
Robyn still happy, so happy that he's added at least one extra
show (17th) with a possibility of another (24th).

Note that as the weeks go by, the size of the bread accompanying
the 12 Bar vege lasagne has been getting smaller.

Robyn apparently played a mini-set at the Cyberia cybercafe in
central London on Friday, to an audience composed almost exclusively
of websurfers and coffee addicts. And some guy handing out
Gauloises cigarettes as a sort of promotional thing.

To bring together a couple of recent threads, the support at
the 12 Bar was Sid Griffin (with a 'n') - just shows what can
happen if you give Robyn a good review. And Sid's mate Billy Bragg
was in the audience, too
