    LEEDS Town & Country - 12 Feb 98
    opening act: Rialto and Libido

    From Adam Bettinson

    I was at the Leeds concert last Thursday, I didn't see the warm up band but Rialto were pretty good and eventually got the audience to start moving.

    Now that Sleeper have 3 albums to draw from they no longer have to play all their 'best' songs which gives them some flexibility in getting a more diverse set together. Although 7 songs were played off PTMY it is clearly a weaker album - apart from the opening number (Firecracker) the first 4 or 5 songs were all off the first 2 albums which got the gig off to a cracking start. Having said that the new stuff went down really well (especially Traffic Accident). As before the encore included She's a Good Girl (more or less guaranteeing a return to the stage) and finished with Vegas (brilliant!)

    The band (and especially Louise) were the most lively and energetic I've ever seen them - they basically looked like a band who have had a bit of a kick up the ass and were thrilled to be back out playing live again and getting away from the press etc etc.

    Loads of energy, brilliant concert - can't wait to see them at Brixton in a couple of weeks!

    On a second note did anyone else see Louise on Newsnight (current affairs program) on Friday night. She was talking about the 'water over John Prescott' incident at the Brits and basically slagging politicians who try and appear trendy by hanging around with media stars - I think her exact words were "Politicians and pop music don't make comfortable bedfellows". Profound....
