There's a strange, stumpy review of the Rufus Wainwright gig at the Lyceum today:
RUFUS Wainwright’s new album is called Out Of The Game.Is this going to be a tortuous football reference?
Appropriate then that while the rest of Britain was glued to the Manchester derby, fans at London’s Lyceum were watching an artist who’s nearly as flamboyant as Mario Balotelli himself.Psst, Gordon: Rufus isn't in the closet. You don't have to use "flamboyant" as code.
Rufus belted out the Mark Ronson-produced album’s best tracks, including Montauk – a song for his daughter.Hold on - did he only do the best tracks that Mark Ronson had produced on the album, or had Ronson produced the album from which Rufus performed the best tracks? And is Montauk a song for Wainwright's daughter, or Ronson's?
Perhaps the review was written with one eye on the football.
