It’s nice when you can see spot someone you’ve been meaning to see to play for a while, especially when it’s at a cafe on a Monday. Yes, original music on a Monday at lunchtime. I walked past Tropicana Cafe in high St, Fremantle the other day to hear Andy from The Body Of John playing a solo acoustic set.
Dressed in black, his voice gave a different soundtrack to the cafe,. Swaying from side to side as he played his songs, he wasn’t fussed by the small crowd of luncheaters, he just played. His songs told of stories you could relate more to the blues rather than the postpunk sound of his voice.
Normally a vocalist/guitarist in a pub rock, this was an interesting way to hear Andy’s songs.
