Alison Moyet...

Last night Stu, Darren and I went to see Alison Moyet at the Royal Festival Hall. Touring to promote her new album The Minutes the lovely Ms Moyet was on good form. We were treated to the whole album interspersed with pretty much all her hits.

As a reflection of the electronic sound of the current album much of the evening had a strong electronic feel to it with two synths on stage. In fact reinterpreting some of her 1990s Swain and Jolly classics as 1980s synth pop ones gave a pleasing retro-resonance to the evening. It was like Yazoo was back in the room.

Great sound. Great voice. Great show.

With high energy shows like this Alison could be playing bigger venues again one day very soon.
