 James @ The Brixton Academy
James at Brixton Academy in 1989 was one of the first gigs I ever went to.
I have loved them ever since and I am told that when I try and "make some shapes" I dance like Tim Booth with a generous spattering of Bez, excellent when you are a lean, lithe star but appalling when you are a 15 stone drunk with very little rhythm.
Brixton Academy is the finest live music venue in the known universe and I have neglected it of late.

 London, Brixton Academy, 13th March 2005 - MARS VOLTA, THE - - - -
It doesn’t have the brutal immediacy At the Drive-In once had, but it is a step onward from the post hardcore revolutionaries that threatened to dissolve when ATD imploded.
Remaining unwavering in their own obvious talents, the same pretensions that made ATD-I so relevant have been given the opportunity to flourish in an acid mix of furious punk rock, free style jazz and Latin passion only for it to be performed with progressive abandon.
Well not in a conventional sense anyways, as swallowing the by no means small Academy is no mean feat.   It’s a sound that’s vast and devouring and only tempered by jolting drums and Cedric’s wail.

I saw them at Brixton Academy on the 26th and they were amazing, although I have to admit Ricky was much more dynamic and entertaining when I saw them at Glastonbury.

 The Pogues Tickets, Brixton Academy, London
The Pogues, formed in 1982, mixed a combustable blend of punk and folk and became one of the biggest bands of the decade.
And they've always been at their best live, be it an outdoor festival (like headlining this year's Guilfest) or an indoor pogo-ing palace such as the Academy.
The sheer energy of Fiesta and Sally MacLennane lift the crowd up ready to be spat out in time for a fit of despair as manic switches to maudlin and the band play The Old Main Drag and Auld Triangle.

There is no doubt that Beck has taken an ample handful of all the above for his particular bizarre mixing pot and added his own bubbling blend of eclecticism besides.
He dishes up stacks and stacks of psychedelia, glam rock guitar licks, gyrating moves and more deep down and dirty funk grooves tonight than Brixton knows what the hell to do with - but we're giving it our very best shot Goddammit!
This truly understated star takes to the stage and kicks off with some sublime harmonica-fuelled acoustic blues moments until his self-created perfectly honed mayhem really begins.

Uniquely, the middle-aged Pixies may look less incongruous on stage now than their youthful selves did.
Black's admission of a financial imperative also means the Brixton crowd are spared both gushing expressions of faux-camaraderie and the chilling little speech which goes "we'd like to play some new material", and causes reunion gig audiences to stampede for the exits.
In fact there's an almost tangible froideur between the band members.
