Watch this: London busker jams out to Faithless on the spoons

Posted at 1:00 pm, May 24, 2013 in Fun London

London is a melting pot of culture, taste and creativity and our buskers are no exception. You may be used to seeing the same guitar-strumming singers in the tube or the odd double bass-plucker outside your local bank, but how many of you have seen a spoon-rattling aficionado take to the streets? Well, one documentary film maker – who goes by the name of Pinny Grylls on YouTube – spotted a cutlery virtuoso showcasing his talent at Borough Market six months ago. Pinny uploaded a video of the spoonman playing along to ‘Insomnia’ by Faithless and it has since had close to one million hits. Let’s just take a minute (or two minutes and fifty-one seconds to be exact) to appreciate the fact that London is full of surprises.  Carly-Ann Clements
