Thread Name: Bellowhead on Jools Holland - 1 Dec 2006
Subject: RE: Bellowhead on Jools Holland - 1 Dec 2006
Hmm, the show was a definite letdown for me too. Bellowhead did their big best in the artificial environment, but they're so so much better truly Live. But then I guess another good reason for doing the show was to Make an Impression with folks who wouldn't normally catch their music - good gambit if you can pull it off. As for the Tanyas, well they can be brilliant live, but the sound on Jools' prog was unusually crap and you really couldn't hear a word of the singing. And they only got given one measly number. Thom and Anthony impressed me, but I was bored sick with Keane's (I think) four numbers (overkill or wot?) and I didn't really rate the Peppers this time round I'm afraid, I've heard them do much better. All a matter of personal taste I know, but there've been way better Later shows that've had a less promising or less tasty lineup.
