Last night, I went to the Academy in town, with Trevor – the first time in ages – to see the Fratellis.
The band was great, but there was a real sound quality issue and that pretty much ruined the performance.
I’d not heard any of their newest stuff before, but I was both surprised and impressed. But the evening was all about the 10th anniversary of Costello Music.
An unusual, but good, final song was a cover of Runaround Sue, the Fratellis style worked really well.
After the gig, we bumped into Mr Towers, who dragged us to the Hadrian teepee to meet up with the Fazakerleys and Mr Pratt.
So, while the sound at the gig was something of a disappointment, it was an enjoyable night.
