David Levels With Ben Live
As mentioned previously, David contributed some guitar
to The Levels, a track from Ben Watt's new album
Tonight David went a step further and played on three
songs in Ben's much-anticipated show at Islington's Assembly
Hall, London. Ben had already performed some shows around
the country just with guitarist Bernard Butler and himself,
but tonight for the first time they fronted a full band,
with additional bass, drums and keyboards.
As you would imagine, the set was centred around the songs from Hendra,
with David adding additional guitar toward the end; having
contributed atmospheric lap steel on The Levels,
he then hoisted a black Fender Strat for Young Man's
Game, which saw Bernard and David alternating licks,
each highlighting their own individual style. The first
encore of Spring featured David again on lap steel,
before Ben closed the show on his own at the Wurlitzer
electric piano, for The Heart Is A Mirror.
All in all, another memorable evening.
