Mr Hudson at the 100 Club, London




It's been a long time since I've seen Mr Hudson perform. I think maybe even back at the iTunes festival when Kanye West came out and joined him on the stage of the Roundhouse. A lot has happened since then, and when I heard that he was going to be playing at the 100 Club - I was surprised and pleased to be able to see him play such a small venue again.

I guess I've been a bit out of the loop on Mr H for a minute. Over the last 12 months or so, I'd heard a couple of new tracks Fred Astaire and Step into the Shadows - both very different. I was intrigued that Mr H was still making exciting and challenging music, wondering when an album would come out etc.

A big surprise to me and a really nice surprise was to see that Joy was playing with Mr H again. They're vocals go so well together - I just love that sound from the first album. The gig was incredible, hitting the old tunes in different ways, peppered throughout with new material and introducing new band members that add new sounds to Mr H's palette.  New songs which include the sounds of Saxophone as well as some quite rocky guitar as well as the electronica and beats.

Here is the setlist from last night....





Looking forward to hearing what is coming next from this great pioneering UK artist.

Here are some videos from last night - enjoy!

Bread & Roses



A Tale of Two Cities


Step into the Shadows
Also very much worth mentioning were the support acts Matt Henry (incredible voice and interesting tracks written together with MrH "Under the Influence?") looking forward to checking his material out and G FrSH who was brought some South London hip hop to the proceedings.

Prince's London Surprise - Part 1

It started 4 days ago with a simple message on Prince's official twitter account @3rdeyegirl "Prince Now in London"

Why would anyone think that a twitter account with this name would have any knowledge of the whereabouts of this notoriously secretive and prolific artist?

Just hours earlier there were reports online about a listening party held in New York to promote the new single from Prince called Pretzelbodylogic.  Riding a crest of exposure following a well-received appearance, as himself, in a special Super Bowl edition of US comedy show "New Girl", Prince seemed ready to step back into mainstream consciousness again.

One might expect a number of US TV appearances on popular entertainment shows to promote this new single and forthcoming album and tell the rest of the world about what he has been busy doing over the last couple of years.  However, being one to always do his own thing, Prince appeared to have flitted away to London in a mysterious move that…
