Love You Long Time: End of Lydia Lunch support slot Montreuil Paris
Fighting hard to win over a hip noisy Parisian crew who were there to see the headline act, the infamous Lydia Lunch.
So I had to work hard to get them to listen to the unknown performance poet.
I was rather flattered when a couple came up to me and told me I had restored their faith in America. I had to upset their new found vision by informing them that I was a Paddy and not a yank.
Tried to ignore the talkers down the back at the start by focussing on rapt faces up front.
It was curious though when I found out that the two guys ostensibly digging it the most actually didn’t speak a word of English, they were just grooving on the energy.
Anyhow by the final number I had the whole crew on script.
They were rapt and roaring as I wrapped up.
