just got back from watching Mr Lekman in Salford. (stabbings: nil)
he's ace isn't he? never heart him before. Very Belle and Sebastian/Magnetic fields but with a lyrical charm and a melancholy all his own. his band of beautious swedish ladies offset by the slightly incongruous presence of Bill Wells were really fab too.
and he was supported by Vinny Peculiar who's an interesting manc songwriter. a bit like a jarvis/bowie wannabe with some witty songs. he was performing just acoustic but dancing and jerking to the bits of the songs that are obviously there on the records but which only he could hear.
top one. got 'oh yr so silent jens' straight away and am now listening to 'black cab' while my mac update downloads.
