Diaboliques seems to be the name they have gone with

We did the session today and even by the end I was still not sure if they should be called Diaboliques or Trioboliques.

In any case, it was extremely enjoyable and in addition to everything you will hear, there was an interesting discussion in the reception as we waited for the taxis for the home journey. It emerged that Ben Mandelson never considered himself the most gifted musician he knew, when he was young - there were others at school with better pitch or who were quicker to pick up the structure of songs they heard for the first time. Justin says even he now he knows people who are better musicians but who would not dream of trying to use that skill to make their living. When I told Lu that I gave up playing guitar as a teenager because I couldn't tell when to change chords, he said that he couldn't either, not at first. When he started out, he just watched the other musicians and changed when they did. Damn, I think I took a wrong turn back there.

news hot off the press. Ben now thinks they're calling themselves "Les Triaboliques"

given how the Triaboliques band name sounds a possibility for the forthcoming album title has emerged.

"testes, testes, 1, 2, 3.."

with a pawn broker sign on the cover. Uncle Lu connection

I like it.

The 3 Bolique 3 gig at Kings Place has sold out, but there appear to be some tickets left for Justin Adams' final performance of the evening - only £2.50 each:

    Invisible City
    Time: 23:15 (Thursday 2 October)
    Venue: Hall Two

    Justin Adams - guitar, percussion John Baggott - synthesizers, samplers Billy Fuller - bass

    For his final Kings Place concert, Justin Adams will premiere a new group with two of his cohorts from Robert Plant's band. The Invisible City trio will put Adams' guitar in a denser electronic context, in the spirit of his work with Jah Wobble's Invaders of the Heart. Loops of trance percussion will be set against shifting textures and pulsing bass, with Adams' Afro/Arab guitar tracing above.

    John Baggott is one of the unsung heroes of the Bristol scene. He has recorded and toured regularly with Massive Attack and Portishead, as well as contirubting to many soundtracks with the Startled Insects. Billy Fuller has collaborated with Can's Damo Suzuki, John Parrish and cult Bristol band Fuzz against Junk, his bass referencing dub and psychedelia. He also provided bass for the Adams/Camara album Soul Science.

Thanks for the information Dominic, I had not counted on it selling out. I thought I could turn up on the night. I wonder if they will have returns.
