James Dean Bradfield at the Concorde
Mmmmm, a quiet Sunday night watching a bit of live music... well, not quite; the Concorde was sold out and heaving with folk there to see James Dean Bradfield, a large proportion of whom seemed to be pissed up w*nkers who were more interested in talking all the way through his set. Which was a pity, as otherwise it was a decent gig. James played a load of stuff from his current solo album The Great Western and a number of old Manics tunes such as Ocean Spray, Kevin Carter, A Design For Life and From Despair To Where. A brisk hour and that was that - no encore - just left the audience wanting more. Oh yeah, and something else I noticed - is it me or is James Dean Bradfield looking more and more like Julian Barratt from The Mighty Boosh! these days?
