Proper tunes. I saw Eels at Manchester Academy back on September 4 and I reviewed it but it was shit so I didn't post it. In the two hours and 27 songs Eels left behind the acoustic guitars and gentlemen's tours to rock through material spanning seven of their nine studio albums with thoroughly rocked up versions of 'Me E's Beautiful Blues'and 'I Like Birds' with the ever changing 'My Beloved Monster' taking yet another shape and smatterings from their recent trilogy of albums, 'Hombre Lobo', 'End Times' and 'Tomorrow Morning'.
That was not the review.
Sarah Mac is apparently recording the soundtrack to Prince Naseem Hamed's biopic, should be fairly interesting. The young singer songwriter from Sheffield produces drama queen melodies over spectacular piano to give you something you're not quite expecting and is definitely one to watch over the next year.
