18/04/2012 MARTIN STEPHENSON: In The Word

Date Published: 18-04-2012

The Word is my favourite magazine, so it is a genuine pleasure to nick stuff from their website...

Martin Stephenson and the Daintees

When: Tuesday 10th April
Where: Liverpool 02 Academy
Comments: Martin reunited with the Daintees to play their debut Boat to Bolivia and a selection of songs from their later albums. I am sure the word exuberant was invented just for Martin. He had a massive grin on his face the entire evening as he treated an enthusiastic audience to his best known songs. Highlights for me were Rain, Left us to burn and a barnstorming Salutation Road which included the whole band walking through the audience jamming to their hearts content.

The Audience: Not much sign of any fuckwits - it was a joyous night and everyone seemed to be having a great time. The whispered audience singalong to the chorus of Rain was actually quite moving.
Food & Drink: Dodgy meal in a Tapas bar beforehand with my brother and Paul Waring of this parish - my brother was lured by the pretty girl offering free tasters outside.When will he learn?
It Made Me Think...: MS is a genuinely nice bloke who has no interest in fame and fortune.Not everything reaches the spot - one of the encore songs with Helen McCookerybook was out of kilter but we can forgive him that.
