i don't know his stuff that well, are there any songs especially that i should know when he plays them?
Bllodbeat! I hope he plays those. And that he's good. Anyone know if there's any support?
him.lycanthropy is fucking awesome. wind in the wires slightly less so but accident and emergency kick ass. its wicked.
just bought lycanthropy after hearing to the lighthouse. its currently on its first play. first of many me thinks.
Tonight was really good, first time I'd seen him and I wasn't a big fan previously. I strongly recommend going to see him although could of done with at least one electronic song.
it was mindblowing. It was much, much better than the Bloomsbury debacle earlier in the year - but still not as good as I know he can be.
The first half was good and I (although I know certain people who disagree violently...) have grown to love that 'Magic Position' song that he finished that half with. But the second half didn't really get going until five or six songs from the end, in my view. Certain moments were stunning - 'Stars', 'To The Lighthouse'...but not enough of it.
He was never going to play anything electronic last night, but I don't think he had enough to carry off two sets of other stuff without it. Shame.
And if he plays 'Enchanted' ever again, or mentions 'Disneyland', I am actaully going to rip off his hair and make him eat it.
Bishi was good on 'Magpies' though, innit.
because of the sound level limits in the venue innit?
It's also not really the right setting for anything electronic. The kids would have been frugging in the pews.
there a couple of months ago it was a bit spoiled by the fact that you couldn't really dance or move at all. It's a lovely venue yes but the surroundings ( as well as not being able to drink) only suits a certain section of live music.
That's it. It's obviously incredibly atmospheric and aesthetically pleasing and blah...
But at the end of the day you're sitting in rock hard wooden pews for over an hour. Splintercore.
If you'd kindly refrain from labelling everyone idiots if they didn't enjoy something as much as you, that would be lovely as well.
It was good, but not as good as I thought it could have been. That's 'I'. A personal review of a gig. Thanks. I'm glad you liked it though.
But yeah, really. I don't know whether it's because I've seen him do some utterly magical things on stage in the past or what, but...I don't think that it was *that* brilliant last night. It might be an unfair comparison, or expecting too much, or the fact I really wanted a cigarette about half an hour in, but it wasn't the superb show it could have been.
I love Patrick Wolf so much, I really do. Lycanthropy is untouchable, Wind In The Wires is pretty damn good, and he's got charisma, wit and charm. But last night, despite having everything in place to make it special, it just...wasn't. In my view, obviously.
And trust me, I usually come home from pretty much everything I ever see saying 'Wow! that was ace!'. I don't moan about much, honestly :)
