Green Man 2010 – Avi Buffalo

The Avi Buffalo set was another cracker, only this time in the drier surrounds of the Far Out tent.

As with John Grant, there was a real buzz about the prospect of this set, with the excellent 2010 album bringing in many punters. I can’t believe anyone was disappointed, because it was a great little set. Avi himself is a pretty unprepossessing, slight figure who plays and sings his complex, touching tunes with confidence and very little effort. He was very good indeed.

I was particularly taken by the way he would pull a funny face at his bass player after each song as if it say “They like us! Who’d’ve thought it?” I even warmed to his reedy singing style, and he went down a proverbial storm.

Recorded the whole set, and shot another video too…
