Moon Safari at the Borderline, London live review
Venue: Borderline, London
Moon Safari team up with Peter Jones' Tiger Moth Tales in London
As quintessentially English as he is undeniably talented, Peter Jones – performing tonight mainly in his Tiger Moth Tales persona – has a healthy turn-out for his one-man support set. Showcasing tracks from the Cocoon and Story Tellers albums alongside his recent collaboration with Red Bazar, he also treats fans to a selection of his astoundingly authentic Genesis Nursery Cryme covers, including a glorious The Musical Box, resulting in a very enthusiastic audience singalong. Displaying his multi-instrumental skills by singing, playing keys with one hand and guitar with the other at many points within the set, while keeping time with an electronic bass drum, his performance is by turns entertaining, mesmerising and amusing. The Noel Coward-like The Merry Vicar provides light relief, and A Visit To Chigwick connects us to that long-lost childhood magical world that never was. Jones touches something very precious within the soul – if you haven’t checked him out yet, do so.
