ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I’ve had my portrait done (well, been sketched) by the artist Peter Blake, but I’ve never seen the sketch or am likely to.
The occasion; some time in the ‘noughties’ when Robyn Hitchcock was in the habit of calling me up to play in his house band for his commendable series of charity gigs at the Three Kings in Clerkenwell, which for some reason, in Hitchcock style, he called the Feghorn.
Blake, known among many other things for his portrayals of musicians at work, was likewise in the habit of popping along to Hitchcock gigs. This being a charity event, it was decided that Blake’s sketches from the first set of the evening would be auctioned at half time. The Three Kings is an old building; the layout comprises a biggish downstairs room (with the ‘stage’ set up at one end), and a narrow, curving, enclosed stairway up to the small ‘green room’ and kitchen. The first set being over, I belted up to the green room for a change of shirt etc, then began to head back down for the interesting auction. These gigs were always well attended. Half way down the stairs I came to a complete stop; the punters had flocked forward, like myself, to get a close look at the goods being auctioned. No amount of ‘excuse me-ing’ and ‘can I just squeeze thru’ made any difference, nor was it possible that it could have made a difference. But I could hear the auctioneer, journalist Mark Ellen, in action. ‘And now, Kimberley Rew. What am I bid? Going, going, gone!’ (for about £100 I think). Couldn’t see the sketch, couldn’t see the purchaser. Does it now have pride of place on his wall, or is it gathering dust in a closet? Who knows.
