My ex colleague at CPAS John Fryer emailed me this tip:
If you have Freeview or the equivalent and can press the RED button on BBC1 then select ELBOW in concert. They are playing a Radio 2 concert of their album The Seldom Seen Kid with an orchestra and choir. It's a rolling loop so you can watch it round and see all the tracks till 7th Feb.
Gang, you therefore have two more days to enjoy one of the best bands of the day. Elbow deservedly won the Mercury Music Prize for this album, their fourth. They are a band who work hard, love touring and playing and in Guy Garvey have one of the strongest song-writers of a generation.
This sort of venue/event suits them well. In a place such as a Carling Academy or other arena all the audience idiots talk too loudly through the excellent quiet moments. Rock bands with shade to their music suffer in such places. Sorry that makes me sound old but there you go.
