Anneke van Giersbergen in Manchester live review
Venue: Fac251, Manchester
Anneke van Giersbergen and Tony Wright prog out at the former Factory Records HQ.
Tonight’s support introduces himself as VerseChorusVerse, but the more cunning identify the solo acoustic performer as Tony Wright, former frontman with And So I Watch You From Afar. The name was chosen as a joke, given ASIWYFA were pretty structure-less in their instrumental meanderings, but Wright’s solo material places him in more moribund blues territory and the moniker seems less a pun, more a label.
