(Luke Pritchard)

Man and his music, the Bob Dylan comparisons abound from his moppish unkempt floppy locks to his nearly unintelligible, slurred quips between songs; then there’s the music and his voice. This was the third time in about a year I’ve seen Luke Pritchard of UK’s The Kooks perform a solo acoustic set; there really isn’t anything more needed to cap off a great weekend. A delightful late summer Sunday afternoon, a cool beverage, some friends and cool hand Luke playing a few songs about a block away from my place. I wish all shows could be this enjoyably convenient, but rock isn’t supposed to be convenient is it?

Be that as it may, Luke treated the close knit crowd to some classic Kooks songs, including “Seaside,” “Ooh La” and “See The World,” as well as throwing in a few brand new ditties. I was waiting for “Jackie Bit Tits” but instead, got an amazing upbeat cover of the Dylan classic “Tangled Up In Blue,” (I think Luke might be a fan?). I couldn’t help but think that if this show was in London, people would’ve been camping out for days for a spot inside the doors. Oh well, I guess that’s my win since I was never one for camping out for shows anyway…–CD/Photos by Tear-n
