SLF - again.
« on: March 08, 2004, 10:43:04 AM »
I saw them again last night as they started their latest tour in Northampton. They were on great form - but only did 1 hour and 15 minutes - including the encore! I don't think they liked the beer shower that welcomed them onto the stage - we got the usual "any more of that and we're off" warning - fair enough! However, I think Jake is second only to Jimmy "Rambler" Pursey when it comes to overlong introductions to songs - and they are always the same...  You'll know what I mean if you see them (fairly) regularly!!!

Only differences from last year was that they've added "Back to Front" - as a request by Stuart Pearce apparently and Jake Burns is now displaying some bald spots at the side of his head.

I know, I know, its only a matter of time...

Have you noticed that when Jake Burns sings in his "croaky" voice (like on "At the Edge") he sounds just like Albert Steptoe!

He did ramble on a bit, but it was a good gig. Thoroughly enjoyed it :)

Just stumbled across a new Northern Ireland comedy series, "No.2's"  (on the BBC I-player under Comedy) although about Stormont.... doesn't sound too exciting BUT it features SLF's Alternative Ulster as its theme tune which requires all of the way through, and, it does have some quite funny moments although it takes a little time to warm up
