This week I spent Valentines Day with my lovely girlfriend at the Manchester Academy, watching Jake Bugg.
I was unsure of what to expect. Having only been on the scene for what is really quite a short time, would Jake Bugg be able to transcend his sound to the full capacity of 2350 people. In short, yes he can. We walked away in awe of his undeniable talent, his songs sounding better in person than they do on the record. Highlights of the night were 'Two Fingers' 'Lightning Bolt' 'Trouble Town' and my favourite 'Seen it all'. Actually forget that, listening to his music as I write this I am reminded of how good each song actually was.
If you get the chance, make sure you go see him. You will not regret it.
