Celebrate the enduring legacy of Kirsty Maccoll with Days (1988-1991), a brand new five-disc set

She defied the conventional ‘pop’ category, yet Kirsty Maccoll embraced and defended the genre, wrapping her witty and literate writing in endearingly catch melodies.

Days (1988-1991) is a 4CD+DVD set that brings together the new double-disc deluxe editions of Kite (1989) and Electric Landlady (1991) and delivers 33 non-album B-sides and 12″mixes.

Both albums were produced by her husband Steve Lilywhite and delivered many great singles, although only Days from the former Walking Down Madison from the latter were proper hits.

Kirsty always attracted great musicians and during this period she worked with the likes of Johnnny Mar, David Gilmour, Mark Nevin , Pete Glenister, Elliot Randall and some acclaimed Latin musicians from New York.

A DVD completes this package and includes the seven promo videos Kirsty made for the albums. It’s all presented as a ‘media book’ which boasts biographical information by Alan Robinson.

Classic Pop has five copies of Days up for grabs. To be in with a chance of winning, just answer this question…

Days was originally a hit for which 60s Brit beat combo?
A) The Kinks
B) The Hollies
C) The Animals

Days was originally a hot single for which 60s Brit beat combo?

Gig date: 24 April
Rating: 8/10

Glasgow has been a stronghold for Noel Gallagher since Oasis were signed there 25 years ago and the 50-year-old’s special relationship with the city shows no signs of wavering

Noel may be without his estranged brother but the current line-up touring Who Built The Moon? produced by David Holmes includes some familiar faces. Opening with Fort Knox, it’s ferocious break-beats, ringing alarm clocks and surge of electronic noise fills the arena. Noel looks at ease with Gem Archer by his side and the pair relish trading tight, clipped riffs on the likes of Keep On Reaching or when paying homage to the glam stomp of their youth during Holy Mountain.

Charlotte Courbe might be infamous for playing the scissors but her French spoken-word along with Jessica Greenfield’s backing adds some feminine allure to It’s A Beautiful World. The likes of this and the infectiously optimistic If Love Is The Law are more classic pop than the indie-flavoured Brit type Noel triumphed with in the 90s.

Former Oasis drummer Chris Sharrock kickstarts She Taught Me How To Fly complete with a Top of the Pops-style backdrop. All that’s missing is John Peel’s chart rundown during the Peter Hook-ish bassline. The slow groove of Be Careful What You Wish For recalls those other Creation outlaws Primal Scream – so much so that you half-expect Bobby Gillespie to make an appearance. 

Dead In The Water demands attention and summons the passion and innocence of those much-loved early Oasis B-sides. Dressed in beige linen Noel describes keys player Mike Rowe, who he first worked with on Be Here Now, looks like a Middle-East BBC reporter. When he asks if there “are there any Oasis fans left in this town” a tribal roar is accompanied by an Olympian pint throwing contest.

Little by Little is followed by The Importance Of Being Idle, tellingly four of the six Oasis songs performed were originally fronted by Noel. Dance rock bangers Ballad Of The Mighty I and AKA…What A Life! keep the atmosphere at high voltage. Gem is let loose to channel David Gilmour on The Right Stuff as backing vocalist YSÉE takes centre stage. With the help of a brass section and lazer show, it all builds to create a sublime highpoint.

There are scaled down versions of Wonderwall and Don’t Look Back In Anger, but it’s the lesser-played Oasis No.1 hit Go Let It Out that really raises the roof. The band also look lost in the euphoria and optimism of the moment before he tells Glasgow: “you are the greatest”.

Gig date: 30 March
Rating: 8/10

Vying for attention and yet genially taking turns to headline at Shepherds Bush over two nights, the Stuffies and Neds successfully transport the crowd back to the heady days of grebo, the alternative music genre from the Midlands which firmly wedged its DMs and dreads for a short time between New Romantic, grunge and Britpop.

In case of any remaining doubt, the two sets are bridged by DJ sets from Graham Crabbe of grebo-gurus Pop Will Eat Itself, playing to raucous audience resplendent in Neds, Stuffies, Carter USM, Jane’s Addiction and Senseless Things t-shirts who are presumably all drinking Neds Wonder, the special tour ale.

Miles Hunt, the only original Stuffy left, looks and sounds disturbingly young, still sporting trademark long brown curls and seemingly exactly the same clothes; the same dimply smile, too. The set starts slowly before delving into the delights of first (and best?) album Eight Legged Groove Machine with Red Berry Joy Town, A Wish Away, and relentlessly catchy Ruby Horse.

Hunt banters that the audience made it through an entire song without having a coronary, advising them to pace themselves as Neds have high expectations – and then immediately ramps things even more with classics Size Of A Cow followed by the glorious hoedown Golden Green. Erika Nockalls impressively sets the pace with her fiddling skills, with hints of The Levellers. Hunt tells us they voted on which of two songs to play next – the winner being the superb It’s Yer Money I’m After Baby, but they also play the loser, Radio Ass Kiss, anyway – both songs are great examples of Hunt’s clever irreverent lyricism. Sadly, the set has to end, fittingly, with Unbearable and Give Give Give Me More More More.

Neds arrive to a well and truly fired-up audience – their set is complemented by a seemingly endless rolling wave of crowdsurfers, presumably escaping from the bruising moshpit. Neds have retained their original line-up since reuniting 10 years ago, but are yet to produce any new material – the fans don’t seem to mind, though. John Penney’s voice has lessened in strength, but his high-energy performance with endless frenetic jumping more than makes up for that, having to stop for a sit down at one point. Matt Cheslin is a perfect foil for Penney’s sheer niceness and smiles, full of rock star attitude and, frankly, a bit intimidating. ‘Rat’ remains firmly hidden behind his hair while Dan Worton drives them all on with some superb drumming.

The set mostly draws from God Fodder and Are You Normal?, with a couple of tracks from Brainbloodvolume. Standouts include classics Cut Up and Kill Your Television, both of which stick around as earworms long after the show has ended. As the Empire fills with Alex Griffin and Matt Cheslin’s unique dual bass sound and they launch into Happy and Selfish, those who might have forgotten are reminded how relevant this band was in that grebo era. It’s great they’re back. Now, where’s that skateboard?
