Tonight at 6.30pm Embrace played an illegal gig in the middle of Leicester Square to hundreds of fans clutching helium-filled balloons. Grasping only acoustic guitars and tambourines, Danny with an old-fashioned mic-box strapped around his neck, they made it through four or five songs before the police turned up. Apparently Danny tried to steal a policeman's hat before the band fled to the offices of Capital FM and locked themselves in.
What other band in the world can you imagine doing something so ridiculously weird and wonderful?
In other news, the beach where this photo was taken from (during a walk yesterday evening), has been closed today, and over Bank Holiday weekend, because of high levels of pollution. Go figure.
