Darling Buds, Nightingales – The Lexington, Islington

This is a horrible e-ticket.

Nicer poster!

Back to the Lexington to see another Darling Buds show – my 5th gig of theirs since they reformed four years ago this month.

Not so familiar to me were The Nightingales – active throughout the 1980s and championed by John Peel, so I undoubtedly heard them on the radio at that time but I don’t recall much from them at all, so it was good to see them live.

Definitely no disappointments from the Darling Buds once again. It’s good to hear them sneak a few newer songs into their set too.
