Opening song for the IB gigs

Postby sulky lad » Fri Sep 23, 2016 10:19 pm

I only did this to be the one who started the 6000th topic !!

However, Beyond Belief would be a bit predictable -
Imperial Bedroom would be a great outside bet -
but judging from the liner notes how about a forties classic that might have inspired Almost Blue - a piano and vocal duet from Sinatra era or maybe a Billy Holliday number

as it's around Presidential election time, I'm plumping for a very topical "Strange Fruit" with Steve only !! - no joking here by the way !

Well, my three IB shows...a/k/a BEDBUG TOUR, NOT counting pre-release NYE show, had Accidents as the opener. Let's see his approach this go around.
