windmill of your mind

by jamesendeacott

a few years ago me and my friend Raf used to run a monthly night at a great venue in Brixton called the Windmill. We had some amazing bands playing there including Dr Dog, Scritti Politti, Go Kart Mozart, The View and a bunch of others i can’t remember. If you dont know the venue its a pub on a backstreet half way up Brixton hill – after the Crypt and the Fridge and just before the prison. The landlord is a wonderful yet grumpy chap called Seamus and there’s usually a dog on the roof barking at people. It’s the closest you’ll get to the wild west in south london. Its also near a windmill…Here’s a video by The View – some of it was shot in and outside the place…keep your eyes peeled…

why bring all this up…? Well we named our night The Windmill Of Your Mind – i love the song, the bar was called the windmill and of course it’s a bit trippy. I found out today that the man who sung the song and made it famous way back when has died…RIP Noel Harrison – not many can claim to be a pop star and an olympic skier…
