"Anvil 10th Birthday Celebration"

Next on stage were Fran and Josh, or to be more exact, Francesco Lisowski and Josh Whitehouse. The audience thrilled enthusiastically to this endearing pair, as they loped on stage brandishing their acoustic guitars. A performance of brilliant and ravishing eclecticism ensued which dared to mix drum and bass, classical, flamenco, jazz, blue grass, rock and reggae. Josh’s voice is powerful, with shades of Louis Armstrong, singing with sweet passion and dignity - such as in the touching, ‘Talk To Me, You Think You’re Better Off Alone.’ These songs are stories: fabulously wrought and told. Especially, the song entitled ‘The Time When Fran Was Smoking In A Field With His Brother And Found A Leaf That Looked Like A Bug…’ Halfway through this particularly lengthily titled number, Fran stopped to ask a member of the audience if he was wearing three pairs of shoes. The pièce de résistance, however, was the finale, a cover of Rodrigo Y Gabriela’s ‘Tamacun’, complete with guitars at full tilt - a glorious cacophony of melodic bliss. -


Solar Aid 2009



For days, for weeks, for months and four years,

We’ve been writing songs for all people’s ears,

We started out as two young friends,

Who wrote our songs with no means to an end,

For joy and for summer, so people could dance,

Colourful hats and big baggy pants,

We like our lives, peaceful and free,

We connect with people like leaves on a tree

Because music is righteous,

It doesn’t need any words,

And with it we fly as if two beastly birds,

From place to place,

Scene to scene,

Singing our songs,

From our hearts to our spleens…

No matter what happens,

How big or how small,

We’ll return to our gardens,

Where we started it all,

Jamming away,

We’ll continue to fly,

From night until day,

As the birds in the sky.
