Gigging tonight


Off to the Corn Exchangewith my daughter Amy and her pals to see The Fratellis tonight.

I know they’re a bit of a one trick pony and I’m far too old for this sort of thing but, hey..
Rock’n’ roll man.

Just back and they were pretty good. Amy and her pals loved them. Very, very tight, very good musicians and their songs translate well live. Only one new one which was a bit disappointing. despite all of the above I felt they needed to engage more with the audience and that spoiled it a bit for me. My ears are ringing. Not had that feeling for years. My gig going must have got a bit MOR of late.

On a plus point; check out Figure 5, the support band. The best rock and roll band in the world ever with a no armed drummer! He was obviously disabled and had his sticks taped to his very short arms but Jeez, could he lick those skins. Great band, a cross between the Jam and The Ruts. They will appear on the radar . You read it here first.

Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
