Isobel Campbell

by Thorendal

Tuesday night Isobel Campbell visited Vega, and I visited Vega Tuesday night.
I only just recently discovered Isobel Campbell, and I am absolutely crazy about the album she has done with Mark Lanegan - a master piece! It is called “Ballad of the broken seas”

The thing is, my impression - juged from that album and it’s cover - is that she is exactly like she looks on the picture right above this text. But she is not! She is gorgeous, sexy, and stylish, but in real life she has no attitude what so ever but the little miss goody two shoes, and that is such a shame.
But if one was able to forget her well-behaved doll-like-attitude and just focus on the music it was a delightful evening with music of very high quality.

Mark Lanegan is not joining Isobel on the tour, unfortunately, but instead there is a guy called Eugene Kelly who is from the band called Captain America, Vaselines and Eugenes. I am not really sure what kind of music his different bands have been playing, but I must say that he can really sing!

The wierd thing was that some of the track she played that are not to be found on the album was a totally different style - all country and western, and I am not quite sure I think that style is cool at all! I must admit though that the tracks were well done and sounded very nice, it is just not the kind of music I enjoy. But I wonder if was Isobel’s new tune or if it was Eugene’s. Time will tell.

All together the concert was brilliant, and I am looking very much forward to hearing what kind of music she puts out next.

Thanks to you-know-who-you-are and Per for making it all worth it.

    Jeg synes da, at pladen er sådan lidt country inspireret, sådan henad Nancy Sinatra og Lee Hazelwood. Isobel har forøvrigt tidligere været med i Belle and Sebastian, hvad siger du så…!

    Jeps, jeg ved godt, at Isobel Campbell har været med i B&S.
    Men jeg synes ikke at pladen er country-inspireret - men det er måske bare mig, der ikke hører musikken som den er tænkt.
    Ja hvad ved jeg.
