« Rachel Unthank: the big interview (2) | Main | Potted Rachel »

What a fascinating interview with a young woman who really does know what she is talking about. I bought the album on the strength of hearing Farewell Reegality on the radio and it took a while to warm to the whole set but now there are whole areas of it that I feel are truly outstanding. The bits I don't like are irrelevent - it's great that Rachel and her band use all of their musical influences to produce such an eclectic piece.
I saw them on a cold night at Darlington Arts Centre and enjoyed the show although I did find Belinda a little wearing at times. Her musical talents were great but I did not warm to her attempts to dominate the band. Anyway, that was how I saw it.
I hope that Rachel continues to be Rachel. If people don't like her style, they don't have to listen or go see her. Best of luck to anyone who can make a living from doing something they enjoy - let's rule Sam Allardyce out of that then.
