Nick Hodgson – Live in Leeds

Sometimes you get by with a little help from your friends:a cross between a gig and a welcome home party, Nick Hodgson launched his new album Tell Your Friends fittingly in his home town of Leeds last week, with former bandmates Simon Rix and Andrew White amongst the audence.

Performing a set which contained a mix of new material and old including the ubiquitous Oh My God and I Predict A Riot the drummer-turned-frontman gave the impression he’d been playing that role all his life, the whole spectacle a long way from his previous turn as a songwriter for hire.

One day soon he’ll be known by a different handle other than “Former Kaiser Chief” and nights like this constitute a good start: you can read the full review of the gig here and some words on Tell Your Friends here. (New windows will open up).
