Fraser A. Gorman has almost reached the end of his Parlour Tour, with the last show this Sunday in Preston. I've been to two of Fraser's Parlour Gigs, one in Thornbury at Dave's place and at Julian's place in Cremorne (the latter featured in the video above) and both gigs were a bloody great time! Let's be honest, I'll probably be there again on Sunday.
Julian and his housemates crafted the perfect stage for Fraser; a blue bedsheet hung from an extension cord and a couple of shipping pallets from the construction site next door, beautifully haphazard in its appearance, but practically sound.
Much like Fraser’s music; an eclectic mix of ideas and an intriguing worldview combine to create something surprisingly profound, steeped in charm and wit.
Add in his solid onstage banter and Fraser hand delivers a show that feels like he’s been at it for yonks, an absolute genius at work in the 4x4(ish) m² courtyard amongst the confusing backstreets of Cremorne.
An absolute corker of a tour. Thanks for all the sausage rolls (watch the video ^).
