Martha Wainwright, live at Acadamy 3, Manchester University, 8th May 2005
Martha, sister of the flambouyant Rufufs, and daughter of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, follows a more traditional route than her erstwhile sibling, sticking to a more folk based autobiographical music, no duobt influenced by her parents, Bloody Motherfuckin' Asshole, a song aimed at her father, is a fine example of this, and a really fine song too.
This show, performed on Martha's 29th birthday, was in support of her recently released self titled debut album. That said, she did release Ground Floor previous to this, but it was a limited run produced by herself (I think) and sold at her earliest shows. Anyway, this is a great set, a nice mix of the albumcovers, and older songs that I'm sure you'll enjoy.
