Levellers – Cheese and Grain, Frome

It’s been five years since I last saw Levellers in Frome as part of the Frome Festival, but tonight they were back again.

Support came from Gaz Brookfield who I’d not seen before, but was one of the better support acts I’ve seen in recent years.

The Levellers played a good set from what I could hear of it, but it could have been so much better. The sound mix was atrocious with the vocals so quiet that it might as well have been an instrumental performance at times. It’s a good job the crowd knew most of the words because you couldn’t hear them otherwise.

I’m not sure if it was a Levellers problem, or a Cheese and Grain problem, or a combination of the two, but I’m not sure I’ll bother seeing them there again.
