Steve Pretty’s Perfect Mixtape (Steve Pretty)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

If you’re a fan of Norwegian folk jazz, you’re going to wish Steve Pretty had made you a mix-tape in the Nineties. Reminiscing about various mix-tapes he has known gives Steve Pretty the excuse to show off his considerable musical talent using assorted props including a kettle, a snorkel and the slightly more traditional trumpet. The mood dips a bit with the mention of the 2004 tsunami, but overall this is a cheerful little show. It’s a shame the audience was so reserved because where else you can take part in audio charades, a middle-class gospel choir and a kazoo orchestra? This show is very funny and Steve Pretty’s enthusiasm for music is completely infectious.

Underbelly, 4 – 28 Aug (not 12), 1.25pm (2.25pm), £8.00 – £9.50, fpp155.
