Black cab sessions


Did you see about this in today's Observer? It's sort of an extension of steenbeck's in-car filming...with live music!

I've watched quite a few of these in the past - they have their finger on the pulse for the most part.

The last taxi I took was back in October, on a saturday afternoon, and the cabbie happily regaled me with talk of prostitutes for 15 minutes before fleecing me for my pennies.

Well blow me down, what next. Neato.
Last cab I was in (last week) we were at lights and the cabbie parped a young guy who looked a bit rough, and summoned him to the window. He wound the window down, and said "You eaten today?" As it happens, the guy smiled and said he had, but clearly this cabbie feeds the street sleepers, bless 'im. So he'd probably be happy to host a concert on the move...in aid of Shelter of course...
