Concert Review: Nick Lowe – The Powerstation

At age 64, Nick Lowe has mellowed a bit from his power-pop-fuelled days of the 1970s when he was recording and producing for Stiff Records. One listen to his latest album, The Old Magic, and its clear Lowe’s musical heart lies in the past, namely the Tin Pan Alley days of the late fifties and early sixties. His black Buddy Holly-style glasses set off his white hair and serve as a signpost to what type of music we’re in for tonight. Instead of high octane punk, the sounds Lowe and his band make are more reminiscent of the likes of Ricky Nelson, Buddy Holly and The Everly Brothers.

    Spot on, mate. Spot on. And, Lowe produced a near-perfect set list. With the addition of ‘Cracking up’ minus ‘Sensitive man’ it would have been absolutely per-fect.
