Gough Dawg Go!

Badly Drawn Boy
Le Poisson Rouge
December 4th

How did we forget about Damon Gough, aka that shaggily beareded British dude who wears a tea cozy on his head and goes by the nom del stage Badly Drawn Boy?  And more importantly, why?  Sure, we skipped a couple of his albums over the past decade, but this is the guy that created probably one of the bestestest original soundtracks ever done did: About A Boy!!!!  After grooving like mad to his latest It’s What I’m Thinking: Photographing Snowflakes [mp3|CD], leading up to his show at Le Poisson Rouge, we weres really dangs ashamed at how little we’ve let his incredible voice and indelible melodies climb into our ears over the years!!!  SHAME ON WE!  Shame on you too?

Said show was a mess, mainly cause Drawn Boy was a drunken mess.  He was a not so happy camper to be away from his daughter on her birthday (guess he didn’t look at the calendar when he scheduled his US tour dates), and got rather surly with his audience, even quitting on some songs 30 seconds into em, but by the end of his 90ish minute set of ye olde and ye new goodies (+ a Stones Roses cover with Andy Rourke from The Smiths!), no one seemed to mind the low-jinks that accompanied this ultimately delightful and moving show, especially those fans he was shaking hands with as he sung his hero Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Thunder Road’ when exiting stage right

set list for Friday’s show looked better than ours.  SCHUCKS!!!

newish BDB tune we can’t get out of our heads and don’t want it to: ‘Too Many Miracles’
