Episode Summary

Okkervil River
Just to pre-empt any pedants out there: no, strictly speaking, this session did not take place in a black cab. Kensal rise on a Sunday afternoon doesn't seem to be much of a magnet for Londons iconic vehicle. But we waited, and searched, and tried standing at different junctions, all inwardly praying that we'd soon see that beacon of orange hope atop a familiar black roof. But as the minutes ticked by, this session was beginning to feel like it had a slow puncture. Until, that is, we saw the minicab sign out of the tail of our eye. Why not? It wasn't perfect, with us sitting in the foot well with knees up to our chins, but in the absence of anything else, it would certainly do. So for this week only, let us present the minicab sessions, with Okkervil River singing 'Big Black Car' - a song which feels rather mournful, given the absence of our dear friend the big black cab.moreless
