Beck Live at the Marquee | Irish Examiner

It was certainly a fantastic night! Although on a number of occasions I was about to get down and rock out, I caught myself and realised, it is definitely not a rock concert. It was a large venue which I reckon is more suited to rock artists in my opinion. Beck is the kind of artist that is more suited to festivals or smaller intimate gigs. He did a great job on stage with an oversized cowboy hat and skinny figure.

The man is certainly creative and unique when it comes to music production so I appreciated every minute. Check out this article below.

You do pick up on the sharper facets of the delivery and it is a very appealing tune because of this. With the substantial way everything is balanced there is a great deal going for it and if this is a taste of what the band are all about in 2015 then we can’t wait to hear more.

We would meet and chat about life and exchange writings. In fact, it was Frankie who really pushed and inspired me to actually pursue my writing as a career, to get what I was creating and saying out there and into the world. For that I am forever grateful. But enough about me.

Frankie Griffin writes with the grit and honesty of a true maverick poet*, a living Bukowski who’s got a lot more to give, allowing a certain tenderness to emerge from the darkness. His…
