After getting in from the opening night of the ABSOLUT House of Masquerade last night I caught the last half hour of The Streets’ performance at the Electric Proms. I thought about buying tickets for it when it was first announced and have to say that I’m now gutted that I didn’t.
Those of you who are based in the UK can watch the gig on the iPlayer for a week or so & I’d highly recommend it. Everyone else should go out and buy his album Everything Is Borrowed: it’s a really lovely piece of work, with only one duff track and is, I’d say, his best since his debut Original Pirate Material. If you’re not sure, check out the title track above, I Love You More below, or you can still get a free download of the amazing track The Escapist.
The Streets – a truly Great Briton and, I think, a national treasure in the making.
