A beautiful day..


Only later, was this noticed in the above...


The beast was about its business...


...on Crispycat Hill...


At lunchtime, it was evident..


...that the festivals commenced in earnest today...


In Fopp, a new compilation was spied...


I was able to replicate this at home from my rather expansive library of Trojan discs....

Frustratingly, four tracks are missing...


Homewards under still blue skies...



The beast on the bus...


Almost there...


After science...


Behind the door - this is Soft Machine in all but name...


...while this man writes piano music to be played by pianists' forearms - and some tastily tuneless, magnificent string quartets...


..both of which we witnessed first hand in Berlin last September, in the presence of said man...



Back out into the sun...


...from which the Exec Producer's bonce was protected by a fetching hoodie...


...very...


...relaxing...


The hubris of self portraiture was present...


Wine was enjoyed...


The Exec Producer had been executively producing...


Yowsah!


...followed by more wine and tasty coffee...


...before retiring inside for a "Person of Interest" and some listening to far out jazz and enjoyable tunelessness...

A very good day...

Highlight of the Day : Moroccan lamb in the garden...
