Solo Sarah

News reached me via the grapevine (twitter) last night that Saint Etienne singer Sarah Cracknell is doing some solo dates in the UK in June. I think that is a fine reason to share a Saint Etienne video, and I’ve chosen He’s On The Phone (here’s a quick reminder of their other stuff).

The ents24 page for the mini tour gives us some inexplicable detail about Ms Cracknell:

Sarah Cracknell is an English singer-songwriter, best known as the lead singer of the electronic music band Saint Etienne. She is the daughter of Stanley Kubrick’s first assistant director Derek Cracknell.

Now we know.

The five dates are in Bath, London, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester. That last one is at the Deaf Insitute in Manchester, which seemed rather counter-intuitive until I read up on the history of the place. It seems that historic buildings repurposed as music/drinking venues is a big thing in the UK now.
