TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Shoreditch High Street, London, England!

“…Anything that you wanna do / anyplace that you wanna go / Don’t need permission for everything that you want / Any taste that you feel is right / Wear any clothes just as long as they’re bright / Say what you want / ‘cos this is a new art school / Do what you want, ‘cos this is the new art school…”

This week my rock ‘n’ roll journey brought me back to jolly ol’ England. It’s been two years since I’ve made the long journey from my cozy canyon to the great city of London. In many ways the city has changed.

Again my music business activities have been centralized in Shoreditch and around the London Bridge area. High tech coffee houses are everywhere and when you are 8 hours behind, a high skilled barista is quite a welcome sight.

There are a couple of things in UK that have not changed. One is the pleasure of bumping into many of the great friends I’ve made in the UK indie rock scene. The other is the British passion for guitars. “British fretboards” feel very alive and well.

Over the week I saw 9 bands—all I would classify as guitar driven. It’s with this fifty year tradition in mind that I give you this, my latest episode of the Idelic Hour.

Great seeing you all!
