my "unplugged" performance on BBC radio  Reply with quote  

I spent 2 hours making this blog post. I'm not about to repost it all in a forum thread so please check the recording and additional info at www.SageFrancis.net

I perform "The Baby Stays" and "A Hell of a Year" and "The Best of Times" with two acoustic guitarists.

give it a listen. Over a million people already have when we did it live. They said nice things. I became a trending topic on twitter in the UK because of it. The world changed. Serious.

www.SageFrancis.net has the goods.

Those were great. You were in the zone and those guitar players were excellent. I was bummed when it ended. Dope.

I also liked the last time I was there. A whole lot.
I did the spoken word performance at the Inkymole exhibit around Halloween in 2006. That was fantastic.

Anyhow BBC set was very nice.

That kicked some ass. Any chance we could get these as separate MP3s?

Perhaps at some point. Not sure if I'll be able to come up with more stuff that's in a similar vein, at which point I'd like to have a full EP or LP size thang. For now I just wanted to let people hear it and see what they thought.

I decided to perform my songs with 2 acoustic guitarists, Ally & Warren. We’ve never performed together so when we arrived at the studio we spent an hour rehearsing some ideas before taking them live to the air
