The politics show

Another night, another tremendous gig: hot on the heels of superlative shows by The Jesus And Mary Chain and Public Service Broadcasting came Nadine Shah's appearance at the Globe on Sunday, with Hull punks LIFE in tow (reviewed here for Buzz). Most of the set was drawn from new LP Holiday Destination, and it wasn't hard to see why - it's a significant step up from anything she's done before (and neither Love Your Dum And Mad nor last year's Fast Food were exactly shoddy). Given my home city's largely heinous contribution to music over the years, it's a relief to find another Geordie artist about whose work I can genuinely enthuse.

This Drowned In Sound interview makes for good background reading if you're just starting to explore Holiday Destination for the first time - and of course the fact that it concludes with her branding Morrissey "a fucking bellend" and saying "he's gonna make me eat meat again" only makes me love her more.
