Ba Humbug – Robb Johnson’s regular pre-Christmas gig.

On Sunday 21st took a train to Shoreham and the Wellington to hear Robb.  It was crowded by 1.30pm.  Over two hours I drank some Hophead and Barnsley Bitter, and (best of all) Long Man’s Pale.

Robb early on in the afternoon - no sweat yet!

Some excellent lyrics, including:

‘with a skinful of cheap lager and tatoos’  and  ‘you don’t ask for the moon on Hounslow high street’

as well as a song called ‘Government by merchant bankers’.

Too crowded to see the stage, so after 2 hours I left, and had a few halves in The Old Star micropub, including a very rich plum and chocolate porter and a milkstout.  Popped into the Buckingham for a drop of Landlord to pass the time before the Brighton train.  Saw a fine Staffordshire pottery Tom Paine sat on a beer barrel, globe and book in his hands.
