Palestine's A Country

The Unthanks
The Songs of Robert Wyatt and Antony & the Johnsons, Live from the Union Chapel (Diversions Vol. 1) (2011)

This is more or less the same set as when we saw the Unthanks before Christmas. So maybe just read my review of that. One problem with this kind of live album is that you get a sense of how the band tell the same anecdotes every time they play a particular song, revealing the artifice of the performance process. Listening to this again, I still prefer the Wyatt tunes to those by Mr Antony. I am not sure if this is racism on my part or just an ear for superior songwriting.
