it was just ok.
I went because of the bloke supporting. He was drafted in at the last minute because the other support had to cancel and he put me and my mate on the guestlist. ( www.myspace.com/andrewgower plug plug plug)
I'd seen this gig advertised a few weeks ago and considered getting a ticket. I'd heard a few LS songs and thought they were good, plus the name is that of Indie music legends. I wasn't about to pay the Â£15 for a ticket go. So I was pretty happy that I could go for nothing!
Andy Gower was fantastic as usual but the crowd were obviously there for the Lightning Seeds so got a luke warm reaction. Wgen the LS came on everyone went mad. The songs were ok and performed well enough but Iain Broudie lacked a bit of...umph. Then when they played '3 Lions' for there encore it was terrible. Its not that its cheesey, because its a football song and they're all a bit cheesey aren't they? But it was a bit...dunno, cliche?
So all in all I didn't really enjoy it that much, just thought I'd see what people think.
Pure is a tune though.
