Sir Bob of Geldof

Karen asked me to put this up. It is Sir Bob & Band playing at Hay on Wye literary festival, including the first half of Rat Trap, the legendary Boomtown Rats hit now nearly thirty years old.

Remarkably at Hay, there were no notices, announcements or ticket conditions forbidding recording or photography. It is taken on my trusty V705 which makes a rather lousy camcorder but the poor focus, AGC and zoom control is outweighed by the convenience, portability and immediacy.

(Plus, having a large plastic growth on my shoulder might have brought me to the attention of the men in black with earpieces.)


Update: More of Bob HERE.

I'd forgotten how much I love that record.
