Matthew E White

I should briefly mention Matthew E White who some of us went to see in Leaf last night.

After the hushed reverence that was Lambchop last week it was good to see a proper band making some noise.

Given the size of the place and what sounds like a full orchestra and choir that plays on the record I was not sure what to expect. As it was there were six of them on stage including a pedal steel and a proper drummer.

Matthew E White complied with the no fiddling/changing guitar rule to the letter. When a guitar string broke he carried on playing and at the end of the song spent a few seconds retuning before cracking on with the next song.

It all brought a smile to my face and that doesn’t happen often.
