Mark Lanegan and Isobel Campbell were rather wonderful the other night. It’s an odd pairing – she’s ethereal, nervy looking and projects girlish with her assorted instruments, while he sings dark and grumbling from a deliberately unlit position on stage. They work though – each distinctive voice setting the other off – and with a strange but impressive sexual tension – the songs that is, I’m not implying any shenanigans. Though talking about such things, I heard the best line EVER from the bloke crammed in front of me who came out with : ‘you can have it later if you want it’ – what made it worse was that I suspect he was telling it to his actual girlfriend rather than a random stranger. Charm obviously survives a-plenty. Anyway, great gig, sweet and salty – I’d like more please, soon.
I’ve applied for the Athena Screenwriters thing for laydeeeees – which will right now probably jinx it, but I’m on a roll now, my car passed its MOT hurrah.
Hey you, yes you…… (whisper) YOU can ‘ave it later… yes really.
