Dog

On Friday night, at the Hunters & Collectors gig at the Enmore Theatre, I missed an excellent photo opportunity. In my effort to carry as little as possible I left the house phoneless and cameraless, so when the giant digital screen which formed the stage backdrop displayed DOG in huge letters, I was unable to capture the moment. Luckily I have a pretty good memory for letter shapes—and the shape of the G was the giveaway that the typeface was Arial. The song ‘Dog’ is from the 1986 album ‘Human Frailty’ (released 28 years ago tomorrow), the record that brought the band commercial and critical success.
