Played the ABC...
I had no idea. Was it a good show?
were they good? been meaning to see them for a while
Banana bottom opening up.
although the ABC was pretty empty when they were on.
I'm not sure what to make of the Lemonheads last night. When they're playing Rudderless or the Great Big No they're the the best band in the world but there was far too much of Evan fiddling about with amps and pedals in the middle of songs which doesn't really work when your the only guitar player and the Charles Manson interview bit was all a bit, er, drawn out. So yeah, Evans still one of my musical heroes and I wasn't expecting it to be a really polished performance but at times last night it seemed to fall on the wrong side of ramshackle.
nature of the gig makes it all the more endearing tbh. I thought they were great. It was the opening night of the tour (I believe) and you could tell they hadn't exactly spent the last few months practising their set...
Evan did remark that the band were meant to play over the top of the Charles Manson interview but couldn't (for some reason I couldn't make out)
Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed the gig a lot but maybe it's because it's the first time in ages I'd been ridiculously excited to be seeing a band and it wasn't quite as perfect as I was hoping.
