GASWORKS FINDS EDGY GOLD WITH ITS MOVING PARTS
 

Three weeks ago, I watched Chet Baker – as channelled by David Goldthorpe – descend into hell with his cool tones and tortured memories of beating women, abandoning children and being a big deal jazz-wise who was routinely thrown out of various parts of Europe for being a drug-addled deadbeat.

 

The show, Chet Baker – Like Someone in Love, was mercifully and darkly funny. The first half of the program featured a series of monologues punctuated with songs – Goldthorpe supported by piano, double bass and drums. The second half was a jazz set featuring Baker's greasy love songs. Like Some-one With Love played for two nights at Gasworks before shuffling off to tour the rest of the country.
