I was down in Brighton for Seedy Sunday. Later, I had planned on going to a Brazilian restaurant, but my friend Christina who I met up with had better ideas, and took me instead to Bom-Bane's, a little restaurant on the edge of Kemptown, just up from Brighton Pier. The food was excellent, as was the atmosphere.
It was at Bom-Bane's that I met Jane Bom-Bane. We started chatting about her excellent food, and the conversation turned to music, and I left with Round-a-way Wrong Songs by Jane Bom-Bane and Afterplanesman by Nick Pynn.
A couple of nights later I was talking to my lovely friend Louise, and she asked me how I would catergorise this music, and herein lies a problem, I haven't a clue.
I had listened to Afterplanesman the night before.
Afterplanesman could be described as avante garde classical, a hint of modern tango. Very haunting music, especially the track 'Afterplanesman', from which the album takes its name.
