For my birthday, my son got tickets to Talking Heads in Southampton and the main was Nizlopi of JCB song fame. Excellent music. The support was Dlugokecki “the difficult name on everyone’s lips” (Der-loo-go-ken-ski). Ben’s music is excellent, a bit David Gray but completely individual. Should have been the main act. http://www.dlugokecki.co.uk. Check out his music when you can. Loved it.
Southampton seems to be a hot bed of musical creativity. The Delays are another group, completely different from Ben D, but hugely positive, loud and young. I’ve seen them live and photoed them from the ‘pit’.
Their music is always in my ears when I’m driving or on the train.
I didn’t take a camera that night, a night off 🙂 but in any case Talking Heads was waay to small and would have been impossible to have elbowed right to the front. Just enjoyed the music.
Looking forward to seeing Ben D and Nizlopi again, hopefully nearer to London but I’d travel to Southampton for a good evening out.
