Thread Name: BBC4 Christmas Session
Subject: RE: BBC4 Christmas Session
I missed this mast year, and saw it last night-and i have to say this somewhere, out loud. Those people who mention the transatlantic sessions-you are absolutely right. This concert was an embarrassment from start to finish in terms of performance quality and sound. And the costumes and the gurning and that fucking bloke in the stripy leggings all made me want to shoot myself. I have never been so ashamed of myself or my dearest friends. Oh my god. Not a shred of honesty or emotion in any of it. My boyfriend said to me last night after it was done that this is what defines English music now, and I was very, very sad.
Actually, I take some of that back. Lisa was lovely, and Thea doing what she does. But all the prancing about and the leggings and the everything else...I am sorry, everyone I know and love that was there and a part of it, but Jesus...what on earth are we we playing at here?
