19/05/2012 | Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly – Leeds Brudenell social club

Although my love of live music has led me to become an emotional disgrace in public many times, it’s not often I wake up and genuinely wonder if the night before was a sweet sweet dream. I arrived keen and early to my favourite Leeds live music venue and resisted the temptation to wear my get.cape t-shirt from 2006 that I had been sleeping in for the past 4 nights in a row. This was a good choice as within the same half an hour I found myself at the premiere opening of an intimate new music venue interviewing Sam Duckworth in front of 13 other keen muso’s.

I know I may have crossed many lines that evening between supportive and stalkerish behaviour, but I prefer to think this represents how dedication to something you are truly passionate about, courage of your own conviction and press passes hold a higher value than money ever will. With 6 minutes we covered ground from nuclear war, the revolution of the internet, to falling in and out of love with the acoustic guitar. All of these themes appear woven into the past four albums, representing some truly provocative and political ultimatums for the introspective mind. However Sam is still a very grounded guy and as much as he fears the internet substitutes communication and is responsible for unnecessary social change, he still admits to listening to some of his songs online to remind himself how to play them.

Through my impromptu discussion with Sam I discovered this would be the first tour without a horn section. I wanted to be disappointed but as his trumpet/sax player went to join circ de soleil it seemed somewhat forgiveable if not a bit of a cliché excuse. The main gig did not feel as if it were lacking anything in the slightest and even after my intimate experience at the Leeds hub I still felt like I was the only person standing in front of Sam and the band in the crowded Brudenell. They managed to capture the same awe-inspired attention from listeners anticipating and singing along to every lyric and instrumental melody.

With over an hour long set we witness many favourites we never knew we had and the addition of new tracks from the latest album Maps. The latest single The real McCoy is definitely one to rival the likes of I-Spy and Find the Time, all of which appeared in this incredible performance! From the climatic build ups of tracks like War of the Worlds to the energetic bursts of Nightlife and Keep singing out erratic became an understatement for the emotional rollercoaster I had immersed myself in. I could just be unhealthily consumed by talented musicians, but this is one of few bands that after the first four tracks give me a profane belief that I would walk out of there enlightened and wanting to put the world to right, whilst simultaneously valuing a good pint with my nearest and dearest.

Although we all feared his solo album may be the demise of Get.Cape this couldn’t be further from the truth and this gig had impact through and through from the whispered lyrics, to the signature acoustic slams and powerful percussion from various mediums. The encore was an experience in itself, finishing with Call me Ishmael the metaphoric tale of a white whale, larger on land than it is in the sea much like the office odd bods. It’s a shame and a gift that unlike a film you have no pause, repeat and a video recording can do no justice to the memories made from auditory experiences, even if it does seem slightly profound for an experience I had in a social club.
