Mark Eitzel

Purcell Rooms, Royal Festival Hall 2013

'These are all just a best guess. Thanks for coming to hear the same songs again and again. I won't be coming back to England for a few years.'

'I was raised in Southampton, given TV dinners before the TV. Who can deny the elegance of living like that, entering like a queen? No one can. Well, you can if you're Russia.' (Introduction to 'Mr Jeffries')

'I used to dress to stand out. Now I see death everywhere, I just wanna hide.'

Notable performances: 'Gena Rowlands' Hair,' beautiful; 'My Burberry Shirt,' performance of the night; 'Heroes,' the band seem set to follow him till they collapse barely into the second line.
