England 3-2 Scotland Versus Writers’ Bloc

International Friendly, Wembley Stadium, 14/8/13

I didn’t see this as I was attending Sterne und Autobahnen* last night (see last post but one.)

By all accounts there were signs of promise.

I’d like to think, though, that in a European Championship or World Cup qualifier away from home we would not twice lose a lead. This is Scotland however: it will most certainly happen.

*The Writers’ Bloc gig went well, John Lemke’s and Poppy Ackroyd’s music – thoroughly modern for the most part, not my usual listening – was good and expertly performed, the story to accompany it entertained and was well read. The good lady and I may even have got a taste for tripping to Edinburgh for an evening.

Writers’ Bloc – with Music!

Writers’ Bloc’s latest gig is .. a gig! Complete with music.

Unlike most word and music collaborations though, this time the words were written to complement the music rather than the more usual configuration familiar from film and television.

The musicians are John Lemke and Poppy Ackroyd and the event is titled Sterne und Autobahnen.

It takes place on Wednesday (14th Aug) at the Spiegeltent, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, starting at 9 pm.

Entry is free!
