Can you tell what it is yet?

We're going to see Field Music at The Cockpit in Leeds tonight. They remind me of XTC; especially on this year's Plumb. Andy Partridge writes songs at the bottom of his garden in Swindon. I don't know if brothers David and Peter Brewis write their material in their own sheds in Sunderland; they may well share a shed. Probably on an allotment.


  1. To be honest Jimmy, it wasn't good. Don't get me wrong, Field Music were spot on, they really were; it's just that in all my years of gig going I've never seen such a disrespectful audience. Without going into chapter and verse about just how bad the crowd were (I think my son may be writing a few words on the subject), I'd guess that of the 200+ people in the room, not even half could be bothered to shut up and watch/listen to the band. I'll leave it there. But thanks for asking!
