Goldfrapp at Brixton...


Last night David, Simon, Paul, Drew, James and I went to see Goldfrapp at the Brixton Academy. A blinding show with music and lights and rock and (let's not forget) roll. Alison stormed it. God, I love that woman.

David: "She looks like Kate Bush on the cover of Live At The Hammersmith Odeon in that dress"
Me: "Yeah, she's the Kate Bush for the noughties"
David: "THE Kate Bush is the Kate Bush for the noughties"
Me: "Good point"

And if further comparisons were praise I'd say Alison Goldfrapp has the sexiness of Madonna at her peak, the sultriness and flair for high camp of Grace Jones and her backing dancers would give Kylie's a run for their money.

Great show.

  3. You're not suggesting Madonna is past her peak, are you? ;-)
