Phatfish were awesome. Lou's voice is every bit as amazing outside the studio as it is in. And the rest of the band don't let her down either. And I'm challenged by the humility of the guys - playing in Bognor! I was more excited about the prospect of seeing them than I was at seeing Switchfoot live at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in the sold-out, only UK appearance of their last European tour. (And I enjoyed it more as well)
Shame about the speakers, who seemed to place the locus of authority for their talk in the prophecy of Wigglesworth, rather than the bible.
It was a pretty small crowd, with many who looked as though a journey home on the bus wouldn't cost them a penny. (I saw a fairly aged guy alternately clapping his hands and knees with such obvious pleasure it was delightful.)
Maybe it's their theology. Maybe it's their musicality. Maybe it's the originality. Maybe it's their humility. Maybe it's Luke's beard. Whatever it is, Phatfish are immense.
