Modern Romance at Notting Hill Arts Club

Modern Romance

What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than in the company of the lovely people from We Are Words + Pictures?

Robin Ince, compering, brought some wonderfully acerbic, Charlie-Brooker-esque ranting to the stage.  Judas Zero sang songs about men dying, alone, in space – think David Bowie’s Space Oddity, but with a more obvious anti-capitalist stance to it.

House of Strange were awesome as always, with a new Animal Collective cover up their sleeve – a remarkably faithful version of My Girls.

The evening ended with Dogtanion, whose rather lovely solo show captivated the dwindling Sunday night audience.  He rewarded my (comparative) attentiveness with a hand drawn comic he had forgotten to give away that evening: behold, the story of the boy faced dog.

Dogtanion - The Story of the Boy Faced Dog

Dogtanion - The Story of the Boy Faced Dog

And that’s that.
