I have to admire this guy's tendency for consistence: "Charge", though not my favourite album, is just as good as any of his previous releases. Gotta love the rockier soul of that "Every Time" tune, a cosy wink to the Easyworld days.
I was so, so lucky to have known a bit about him before I went overseas for the first time from the US, and low and behold on one of the three nights I was "couchsurfing" in London, he was doing a benefit not far from where I was staying. I must say it was a stunning performance. I one-man tour de force of looping music technology, instrumental versatility, and lyrical power. I'll never forget it.
That was actually quite an entertaining story, thanks nineinchneals! David Ford is a tremendously underrated artist, sadly. But we who know him are definitely enjoying some of the finest music made in the UK.
What great luck to be visiting London and to catch "Milk and Cookies 9" show, and a charity benefit at that! I have wanted to see David Ford for a long time, and would like to see him again despite his slandering of West Virginia during his second set. ;) I thought his performance of "State of The Union" displayed the best use of live looping technology I have ever seen (and that is quite a lot).
