Low Low have been on the go for 25 years now and amazingly they seem to get better and better, both in their live shows and albums (the 12th of which, ‘Double Negative’, is scheduled for release in September). Their current tour brings them back again to the Brudenell in Leeds, a venue for which they confess they have a great fondness.

The Breeders There is something just undeniably cool about The Breeders. I’m not happy with that word ‘cool’ in there. It’s not a word I use. Ever. But I’m going to allow it this once. The Breeders are a band every aspiring musician should want to be in. That has to be cool surely? I mean, this is rock royalty up on that stage. I digress.

Wolfgang Flür There’s a good turnout at the Brudenell tonight to see a rare UK live show from ex-Kraftwork member Wolfgang Flür.

The audience at the Brudenell is a really unusual mix, ranging from long-in-the-tooth Kraftwerk fans to young enthusiasts of everything techno and electronica.

Manic Street Preachers The first time I saw the Manic Street Preachers was at the Adelphi in Hull back in 1991, at the time they raced through their soon to be released debut double album in 70mph post punk fashion, the sound was abysmal but that didn’t matter as they were the band of their time, fashionably brash and didn’t give a damn about what they said, or who they said it to.

No major deviation or changing of styles, this is a perfect rendition sent to awaken your nostalgic senses and prompt the loudest singalong this venue has seen for a while.
