  • DAVID BOWIE. 1947-2016. - The Final Word
    I loved him in the way that you love a distant relative you are always happy to see What s to say David Bowie is dead and I am alive and everything seems weird When life let me down when days were difficult when moments were harder than concrete I may have felt alone but I was never alone with David Bowie Because David Bowie made it more than OK to be different He made it right David Bowie made it right to do the thing that was right for you There was a different Bowie for everyone and unlike many artists whose artistic identity was defined in narrow roads Bowie s work whatever it was wasn t eclectic at all but the work of a rounded human who showed all his sides There something in him for everyone And now we come to the fact that there is a world without him in it Every listener viewer or reader everyone has a relationship with the artist we bring to their work ourselves and they bring themselves to the world We align with what we know We love strangers and cry to their songs that unlock emotions or let us know that it is ok to take the mask off and let go of the weights we carry David Bowie was a friend I didn t meet but not a person I didn t know Blackstar is a record that yesterday sounded like a brave new artistic direction by one of the most fascinating and important artists that has ever been Today it sounds like a peaceful vibrant farewell David Bowie always followed his own light always did what was the right thing to do by his instinct and I always hoped we would have 20 more years of him

  • KYTV25 : NEDS ATOMIC DUSTBIN / THE WEDDING PRESENT / THE PRIMITIVES / EAT : Wolverhampton Civic Hall - The Final Word
    now seen the same lineup of The Wedding Present three times in a row which must be a record David Gedge is joined by long time drummer Charlie Layton first seen in 2005 bass player Katherine Wallinger and guitarist Sam Beer Pierce It s easily the best Wedding Present show I ve seen the band have locked into place after playing together with this lineup near enough solidly for the past two and a half years The sound is immense with guitars set to the jugular and the rhythm section fluid The biggest issue I have with the band isn t really an issue at all they have so many songs and so much material spread across 14 or so studio albums and 5 compilations that they could play a song from every album in a full show and still not cover all of them For me my favourite Wedding Present song walks a tightrope between wit sincerity and tender fury and starting with Come Play With Me they play six songs probably my six of my top seven Wedding Present songs in a row Dalliance is a song they ve played a lot but like any Wedding Present show there s no one song they play at every show especially when there s something like 50 singles in their armoury Dalliance is staggering Not only does it sound glorious but the venue is heaving with middle aged people jumping up and down and pushing each other yelling the words and well it s just both enormous fun and wonderfully cathartic Setlist Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft You Should Always Keep In Touch With Your Friends Broken Bow Skin Diving Deer In Headlights Santa Monica Come Play With Me Dalliance Dare Flying Saucer Kennedy Bewitched My Favourite Dress NEDS ATOMIC DUSTBIN I ve managed to miss one whole gig by Ned s Atomic Dustbin in the past five years I had a ticket but the inlaws were seeing Neil bloody Diamond that night And now 25 years after the first time they headlined the Civic and I spent most of post gig night shivering in show on the way home and I m back now The hair had migrated to my jaw and off my head the belly is slightly larger and I live 200 miles away down south by the sea surrounded by Tories and beaches The music hasn t changed the audience hasn t changed the passion or the fierce adrenalin rush hasn t changed The Civic is where I grew up where I saw all the bands I loved where I went clubbing in the days of nightbuses and indie discos where I met girls who ruined my life for a while All the hits are correct As well as the sweat tides the broken glasses and the exhaustion Intact Walking Through Syrup Stuck Not Sleeping Around Trust Happy Until You Find Out Kill Your Television All are like short sharp pop bullets There were days when

    easily the best film of his career and if he has to fuck up a franchise let it be Star Trek It s telling that neither of the mitten brained imbeciles Bob Orci or Damon Lindelof are anywhere near this and that s why it s so damn good The plot makes sense with no obvious holes there is a little bit of handwavey coincidence but The Force moves in mysterious ways If films didn t have coincidence and important events in them they wouldn t be worth watching There s plenty good in this but there s one rveal that upon first viewing seems utter nonsense and here s the rub There s an implausible reveal the kind that makes you wonder Do you have to Is it necessary What does it do On reflection it makes sense kind of But at the time it sent huge alarm bells ringing in me The kind that indicated the films entire promise was going to be annihilated in a set of lazy bullshit plotting and the kind of pointless homage that ruined Spectre and Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus It s not quite at the level of Benedict Cumberbatch telling us his name is Khan This reveal has meaning and just because it isn t known to us doesn t mean the rest of the universe doesn t know The rest of that particular plotline is handled with a deftness of touch that is rare and the final resolution of it comes with a tragedy higher than any previous Star Wars film It still jolts you out of the moment and whilst it makes sense it still feels sort of impossible It s the only mis step as the rest of the film manages to play the events with a enthusiasm humour and depth modern film makers need to study The new cast members Oscar Isaacs John Bodeyga and Daisy Ridley all acquit themselves perfectly as fully fledged characters Each has their own personality their own humour and enough character touches to make them real No longer ciphers acting out dialogue they are excellent choices And BB 8 the droid manages to get just the right tone of smartness and irreverence Thankfully there s no ridiculous romance subplot shoehorned in and each of the new leads behave as if they are more than just objects designed to propel the plot forward Yeah big deal But this matters Even the nameless extras including three stormtroopers in small roles have the exactly correct response that shows that this film has been thought about A lot Each segment is the product of an exhaustive analysis something not enough films have where the writers take the film and simply ask and question what it is happening and why and does it make sense But it is They feel right The older actors from the previous movies all slot back into place perfectly Harrison Ford gives a career best as Han Solo proving as ever
