Review: Martin Alldred at Panic Manual
James came on first, and performed a set of material mostly from albums they have recorded since they reformed in 2007. They sounded tight and Tim Booth’s voice has not lost any of its power. It was disappointing to not hear more of the old favourites, “Come Home” being the only song they played from back in the day. It sounded fantastic, and only made it more disappointing that they didn’t play one or two more.

…during the set closer Getting Away With It (All Messed Up) Tim is joined on stage by an older chin-braided geezer in a straw pork pie hat who dances up a storm. The dam has been breached and soon a multi-generational and multi-gender crowd is up on stage dancing up a storm. As the tune finishes, Tim reminds the crowd that ‘it only takes one person to break through and make change’, and as we think about Greta Thunberg [the 16 year old Swedish climate change activist] and other new leaders, it is a good thought for all of us to take home and ponder before we start our new tomorrows.
