Coffee Table Music

by | 1st, September 2006

IN a cryptic move worthy of his hero Bob Dylan, David Gray has devised a stage set that will have his fans’ heads wobblng in bafflement.

David will deliver an ironic rebuke to critics who have described his records as "coffee table music", by performing on a stage at Glastonbury in a set resembling a giant coffee table.

And he will climb onto the giant table by using – yes, you’ve guessed it – a giant white ladder. David’s breakthrough album was named after a lyric about a "white ladder all covered in water" from Dylan’s "A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall".

Don’t be surprised if Old Wobbly Head orders the heavens to open – and succeeds.
