Had a fantastic night at the James gig at The Hydro, Glasgow last night.
James are my favourite live band, a group of fine tuned musicians that captivate and enthralled the audience with pounding songs of love and lust including Laid, Getting Away With It and Curse Curse.
Then lull them into a false sense of security with a haunting melody with melancholic lyrics only for the pounding to start again.
The finish with Sometimes is a near religious experience as the crowd keep the song going long after the band have stopped playing.
Frontman Tim Booth is just one of the coolest laid back guys on the planet.
I was right at the front and was holding his arse while he crowd surfed.
How’s that for a dubious claim to fame?
