The every amazing Polly Jean with her co-conspirator John Parish rocked Shepherds Bush Academy last night for the second of two gigs. Wonderful stuff indeed. How such an amazing range of sound comes from her small frame is somewhat beyond me, but I’m sure glad it does. From the opening epic rock of Black Hearted Love, to the very end, every moment was wonderful and tight – we even got a few minutes of PJ banter as one of the band’s laptops gave us a crackly acapella moment.

It’s been a long time since my last PJ gig at Glasto over ten years ago, and before that was at the Que club in Brum (supported by Tricky) and this gig just shows she’s going from strength to strength. Thanks to Polly and John for a splendid night, to Rich and Andrew for coming along to enjoy, and to Sooz for Facebooking her original comment when she missed the first round of tickets! Now let’s see if I can get some Blur preview gig tickets this morning…
