Takemitsu’s greatest hit, with a hole in the kneemain
The guitarist Milos launched an album of Beatles covers at Abbey Road this lunchtime.
He opened with ‘Yesterday’ in the slightly futuristic transcription by Toru Takemitsu. Difficult to bring off but he took it slow and with great panache. He went on to talk movingly about coping with a hand injury.
We did wonder, however, why Milos needed to sport a hipster hole in the right knee of his designer jeans. Must be we’re not hipster enough
Here’s a hipster track.
