I really enjoyed the Scala show, the sound was somewhat murky and Ariel had trouble with his vocal effects pedal about halfway through the gig, unplugging it and asking the sound engineer to look after his vocals for the rest of the gig. It was great to see Jason Pierce sit in for the first two tracks but he disappeared after that and was never seen again! There was also a guest violinist who played on quite a few tracks but he was barely audible. I briefly met Kenny before the show too, nice guy.
The 'Jimmy Saville' comment I thought was just black humour but it seems The Guardian has jumped on it much in the same way as the press did over the whole Madonna incident, the American's here probably won't get the reference but it's pretty near the knuckle if you live in the UK. All in all a really enjoyable show, and Ariel's boots were worth the price admission on their own!
It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with LadyLazrus and her friends at the show, they were all nice friendly people. I guess a few of you here have already met Ladylazarus and as you probably know she's great company, funny, crazy, gorgeous and most of all just a genuine music obsessive like the rest of us here!
As a special treat for you all here's two minutes of Lipstick I filmed, a Mausspace exclusive!
