OK I’ll admit it, I’m not a massive Dears fan. I appreciate their work but I don’t listen to them much or have all their albums or anything. However, to have not seen them in Leeds at less than £20 a ticket would’ve been criminal.
Murray Lightburn’s voice is just as powerful and glorious live as it is on record (obvious comparisons to Albarn and Morrissey avoided). A great performance. The sound mix started a little muddy but half way in it was perfect.
