More stuff about tossers...

Justin Currie - Studio [Peter Street] Mancsville

Justin has a talent for loquacious social comment woven into simple arrangements that sets him apart from a whole load of dross.

However if your support act exits stage left at 8.10 p.m. and your playing an acoustic set in a pokey hole of a club how come it takes almost an hour for the change over?

And how come half the folks who jabbered their way through the support act continued to do so when the main man finally arrived on to the stage? Reminiscent of MTH circa 73 when the girl in front of me did nothing but plead for 'Buffin' ever five seconds - two die hard female Currie fans held court over what a fine green silk shirt the man was wearing for most of the first two songs.

And another thing - what’s this with every fuffer at a show nowadays taking 200 pix of the performance on their phone or recording the whole damn thing on video - fine if your not obstructing other folks view of the proceedings - but not fine if as your a bit a big bastid and consciously stand near the back - your view to the stage resembles an ostrich farm at feeding time.

We stuck it out for about thirty minutes of the set - but when I realised the 'squishy' sound that failed to match the tempo of the songs was not some new digital effect but the sound of folks walking over a manky sticky floor back and forth to an over flowing 'Ladies and Gents', I decided that playing Justin’s latest CD - excellent by the way - in the car whilst adjourning for a couple of pints in a quiet Pub out of Manchester was to be the favoured option.

Jeeeeeeeez - Ive become a real boring old bleeder in the last few weeks -lets face it folks on this website may have a penchant for a man in a silver shiny suit but you do listen to the music at a show don't you?

I'm off to play some Hank Williams to cheer me self up...

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.
