Friends-&-Family @ the-roadhouse 23.03.02

Another humdinger Friends-&-Family Live! event, this time featuring Fila Brazillia whose sunny music had first fallen out of a grey old Hull back in 1990, and who had since released 6 albums on Pork Recordings before setting up their own imprint 23Records for the next 'A Touch of Cloth' and this (then just released) LP 'Jump Leads'.

Soulful singer Steve Edwards makes all the difference, giving depth to all the live funk, providing focus for audiences (& photographers) while they go about their business driving the whole thing. Good to see such an excellent live band rocking the Roadhouse for a change.

Usual F&F residents pick up the baton after the show finishes, but I'm already hot-footing down a puddle-strewn Portland St. to get to Sub Tub @ Music Box. Herbaliser bring their 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' LP tour to sunny Manchester. With them (I am hoping) is a certain female MC Wildflower...
