Polly Scattergood checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@pollyscattergood) on Tuesday (September 15), talking about opening for The Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer at two sold out shows in the Union Chapel, Islington on Friday and Saturday. The Essex, England singer songwriter tells readers:
Me and Amanda decided a while ago to do some songs together, so I sang a song of Amanda’s called Delilah and we also did Puff The Magic Dragon, which she played from the stage and I sang on a balcony above the stage to the right hand side. It was cool, definitely one of the best venues I have ever played in, in terms of atmosphere, and Amanda has a incredibly kind and friendly crowd.
I have met very few Women whilst being on the road, and even fewer who are really in the trenches, so to speak. In a world where a lot of girls in “music” videos look more like they are in porn films, it was very refreshing & inspiring to watch, and sing with a real musician, writer & performer.
