“Not the kind of jazz you like” said Lee. Which is what this is. Love it. (Especially the bits with no brass)

The Nightingales/Stewart Lee (3 October 2018)

leave a comment »

Lee doing an old set and pulling it apart in the fashion you would expect. Jam-packing the venue. Then the hipsters file out before the headliners…

Who (one of Lee’s favourite bands) are fantastic. No pauses. Straight through. My current listening making me join the dots to Beefheart from a lot of the indie I loved as a kid.

RFH, no good for rock shows. Turns out it’s no good for comedy either [fin]

We like Fern. Charming and little bit dangerous. She’s either about to let the brakes off and amaze us. Or settle down to Live From the Apollo success [fin]

If you’ve never seen Lee, you really should. If you have, you’ll keep coming back for this. An addictive mix of Stockholm syndrome and intellectual flattery [fin]

New variation on the Manifesto format. So, it’s kind of a topical improv. He’s very good at this
