(de mémoire et dans le désordre)


Played l'Européen five years ago on November 11th 2009, with M le Poisson, Eliot Fish. It was a public holiday, it was Remembrance Day. The show had sold out, which seemed a fine welcome to Paris. We opened the set with this song, “It's Not Our World Anymore” and then the remembrances flowed from there. At drinks and a midnight dinner after the show, put on by the affable promoter, he said as if I might be able to explain it “So. 350 Parisians here tonight...and no Australians.” I said that sounded about right. He then told me about a promoter friend of his who had once put on another Australian act. “300 Australians—and no Parisians.” It had been a bad year, but that was how it ended. That was my Remembrance Day.
