If it’s February, it must be Fairport Convention time.
Support tonight came from the uncommonly tall Rosie Carson, and the rather more normal sized Kevin Dempsey. They played for 25 minutes or so before, as is usual, Fairport joined them for their last song. Fairport then stayed on stage for their first hour or so long set. This year they had a new album to promote so a fairly large proportion of the tracks were taken from that. The second set finished with the obligatory rendition of Matty Groves, followed by the encore of Meet on the Ledge. Anything else just wouldn’t be right.

Not so much a lost weekend, as a lost month since this disc arrived. Still, better late than never.

A bit of a mixed bag I’m sure you’ll agree.
I actually watched this a few weeks ago having picked up a copy on blu-ray in a sale. It’s still as good as ever.
A few months back I posted about the LeMond Washoe and how I wanted one, even though I couldn’t actually justify it alongside my existing Singular Firebird and LeMond Buenos Aires. I was seriously considering importing one, and had got to the point of working out if there was a way I could afford to order one in the new year.
Fortunately though LeMond solved the problem for me by increasing the price by $500. At $1799 it was expensive, at $2299 it’s, in my opinion, way overpriced for an off the peg 853 frame, even if it does include an ENVE fork and Chris King headset.
It’s nearly time for the Odd Down round of the Western League Cyclocross. All the fun will take place on 4th Jan at Odd Down Circuit, racing starts at 10:30. Be there or else.
