Ten years ago, there was no direct flight from Bangalore to London. I’m not even sure if there was a direct flight to Colombo. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t. We were second-rate citizens then, you see. Our not-yet-metro Bengaluru was still bickering over auto-rickshaw fares. Today, we are debating whether or not to have a Bangalore Metro, a la the Tube in London.
But the fact is – the boys flew out from Bangalore this morning. They were up all night, packing, fretting, too excited to sleep. They ganged up at Rajeev’s place, bags and baggage and hard-cased guitars included. Mr. David Pascall flew in from Chennai. With the visas. And the other David (not Rzhude, but Dave Brubeckku, Rajeev’s kitten) found lots of interesting odds and ends to play with.
And this morning GMT, they will arrive in London. And on they go to Glasgow, where they will make the gig at the Barfly just in time.
