A Cold wet Sunday afternoon saw Sledge Matty and I warming the cockles of our hearts with the Biscuit Badgers at one of the child friendly ‘Youth Anthems’ gigs at Wharf Chambers – a great turn out with a great atmosphere. Beer, crisps and connect 4. Got talking to Andy and Rachel who had noticed my ‘Wigan Diggers’ T-shirt, bumped into Nervous Twitch and met Justine and Matt who I haven’t seen for ages!
Nicky kicked things off with a set of songs about food, including her phobia of left food on plates….she coped really well with the kids “Why don’t we do this all the time instead of hanging out late at night with boring adults!” but made the mistake of asking them how old they felt she was “34? I’ll take that….no, not 84…”. Gerrard Belle-Fife followed with a mellow set of sumptuous guitar playing
There was a lot of love for the biscuit badgers in the room and rightly so – as ever – they didn’t disappoint with child friendly tunes (I’ve got my finger up my nose) and less child friendly songs (You tell me to kill, but you know I never will….probably….Tweed Jacket!). David Attenborough, Seaweed under the sofa, Cheese….everyone a winner. You need to see these guys ASAP
