Tangents talking about the Magnetic Fields gig I went to last week. Shame forces me to admit that it was most probably my friend Pete who Mr.Fitchett heard compare the Magnetic Fields to Neil Hannon, since we were sitting next to the Tangents guru. It honestly isn’t too odd a comparison to make on a first encounter, or even on a later encounter. I think the crucual difference is class – Hannon has been cast as the British scene’s token posho, and it’s increasingly a role he seems eager to play up to, more fool him.
