I've not always liked Ian Brown's solo stuff, though the greatest hits is OK. But he was much MUCH better than expected live last night and I have been proved completely wrong about him.
He was virtually making grown men weep with I Wanna Be Adored to start, and I Am The Resurrection to kick off the encore (with house lights turned on so the crowd felt at one with the man). A great FEAR closed the set. I also didn't realise the riff on Golden Gaze is from a bass guitar, rather than keyboards, which was fun.
I expected him to be hooded & virtually motionless for the set. He wasn't - he was really working the crowd, grabbing hands and saluting us.
A shoddy Fools Gold, and some forgettable tracks from his new album, was the only slight letdown.
And Andy Rourke from Smiths played bass on a few tracks! Not bad for a night out I wasn't expecting that much of.

17 Dec 2005, 17:37 by deaner82Yippeee!! Guess what?!? The Ian Brown dvd i ordered from Amazon already came in today, even though the amazon site said it wouldn’t be there before after the new year! I guess they’ve just been precautious… I don’t mind.. gives me a nice surprise on a dull saturday afternoon on which i’m supposed to study ;-)
Obviously i had to watch it straight away, as i've hardly ever seen any promos by Mr. Brown. Some of em are real ace (like Be There (UNKLE), Corpses in Their Mouths, Keep What Ya Got (with Noel Gallagher) & My Star (cuz its got lots of The Man himself). I don’t know what the makers aim was in the Golden Gaze video, but it really made me laugh! Its seems really low budget, as if they were just fooling around and oh yeah.. also shooting a promo. But i find that in its advantage.
As for the live performances at the end of the DVD (3 @ TOTP, 2 @ Jools Holland and one @ Dom Jolly (never heard of the latter btw)), most of em didn’t really make me feel happy. King Monkeys live qualities are not best known for his voice. …
