I’m sitting in an internet cafe in Cavtat at the moment, on my final night in Croatia. Just about to dash off and see if I can find a bar that is showing the England match. I notice from the Guardian site that it’s just about to start. I liked this description of the national anthems from their match blog:
There’s a very strange arrangement for the Israel one, which is being covered by what appears to be the Israeli version of the Cocteau Twins. I’ve never before heard an anthem performed at a football match after which it could be argued there was far too much flanger on the guitar. Very strange.
It sounds amazing!!
