There is exquisite pleasure in subduing an insolent spirit, in making a person predetermined to dislike acknowledge one’s superiority.

Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit, Wednesday 9th April 2014 @ Koko, London

My fourth time seeing Johnny live, and the fourth time of being bowled away. He played (I think) the same set as in October, but the songs had a ‘rockier’ vibe, with ‘Howl’, ‘Country Mile’, and ‘Cold Bread’ being particular highlights. Can’t wait for the fifth time!

"Having never had any money, I never acquired the habit of it, and the result is that I have never lacked it; but, if I had been rich, there would have been no more poor people! You would have seen! Oh, if the kind hearts only had fat purses, how much better things would go."
