Dan is Not a Jukebox

26 03 2010

So I went to see Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip for the fifth time last night.  Nothing wrong with that, they are great live and I like their music, which is a great start.  The support was from Sound of Rum, who were female rapper Kate Tempest and a couple of guys playing drums and Guitar.  I liked them a lot, although I couldn’t get over the fact that she sounded like Zack De La Rocha from Rage Against the Machine.  Next up was B. Dolan (no wonder he calls himself B.  Who has heard of a rapper called Bernard?), who is fairly intense, but incredible.  I always like a bit of hip-hop and this was some good stuff.  If my shoulder didn’t hurt from cricket, it would have hurt from Hip-Hop shoulder.

Finally on came Dan and Pip, who started with The Beat that my Heart Skipped, followed up by Sick tonight off their new album.  The new tracks held up well and people were dancing like crazy in the middle.  Dan with his sore throat couldn’t sing properly, but that was ok, as the crowd filled in for him.  Through the 75 minutes, the duo ploughed through most of their two albums.  There were a couple of tracks that I would have liked them to play, but the set was great and finished with Thou Shalt always Kill, Great Britain and Letter from God to Man.

It was a great night, which H and I enjoyed a lot.
