Last minute decision to drop in on Northhampton Square where Young Fathers were doing a ‘Bandstand Busking’ session.
I’d seen Young Fathers at SXSW and as with most rap, I was unimpressed, especially as they were heavily touted. However, I’m always open to new sounds. So I thought it would be interesting to hear them unplugged and what a good decision it was.
Backed by a simple boom box, the group were left to focus on vocal performances. Stripped of their backing materials, I was really impressed by their performance. Really glad I made this last minute decision
