Songs For Ya Mum
25 March - 17 April
ElbowSkin are pushing this show as a best-of, featuring a combination of new material and some old favourites. But you can't help thinking that this best-of show is similar to those bands who put out a "Greatest Hits" CD after two albums of material. Dave Elbow and Ernie Skin are fine musicans on scale with any cover band you'd see at your local, but songs either lack jokes or are so drawn out that you've seen the punchline hitting 30 seconds prior. More comedy is needed before this duo can really rock out.
