you over. This is back to basics at its most mesmerising, where all that matters is the song.
Nervous looking Parlophone-signed singer, Matthew Jay, is up first, an acoustic guitar strapped on and his new band gathered round him. He's already released one beautifully low-key, Elliott Smith-styled album, 'Draw', and most tracks tonight are from that. But, live, they seem dirtier and more immediate (new song 'Stars On The Floor' is a particular highlight), drowning his tender folk in clashing guitar and organs and proving he's not quite the pushover we first thought. We'll be hearing more from this one, guaranteed.
