My last trip to the Cheese and Grain a couple of years ago was co-incidentally also the last time I saw Bellowhead.
Support tonight came from Ahab who were good, but sounded a bit too “busy” for my liking. Too many singers all singing at the same time. Bellowhead were superb as always, and actually manage to sound decent at the Cheese and Grain which is usually sounds a bit muddy. They played for getting on for two hours finishing off with two encores.
