Pad Thai in Holloway Head was the scene of one of the greatest sing offs in living memory, leaving thousands in awe and many more in bemusement as vocal gymnasts from Rewired, Maverick TV, Post & Mail and Big Cat trudged through some of the finest tracks commited to karoake.
Granted the battle was mainly between myself and Tara from Rewired, that doesn’t smear any of the gloss on what was a sensational night and musical extravagence leaving not a dry seat in the house.
What was the most confusing aspect of the evening was the music videos behind the text which looking like the opening scenes of German porn movie. Other strange videos included Titanic running behind Vanilla Ice’s classic ‘Ice Ice baby’ and home footage of two raindeers licking each other during my emotional rendition of ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ by Mariah Carey.
On the whole, a great night that did for music what Sweeney Todd did for hair dressing.
