NOSTALGIA: Still Rampant after all these years – the band that just keep giving...

Have your say

Andy Burrows has moved comfortably from sitting behind his drums to frontman.

Previously known as the drummer in Razorlight, Andy Burrows has established himself as a solo star – and to much acclaim.

Hometown received strong support from Radio 2, as did Light The Night which appeared during the iconic flying sequence on Channel 4’s Snowman and Snowdog.

These uplifting, beautiful tracks, when performed live, are enough to bring goosebumps.

Performed to perfection, this man is clearly talented, professional and experienced.

Some of the tracks strayed into folk/mariachi tones such as Maybe You and Save It For A Rainy Day.

Others were more delicate, reflective and inspiring.

Once Andy has few more albums to draw from, his set will be incredible.

On stage Andy quipped: ‘I fancied myself as a rock star’.

Rock star he is not - talented musician and singer, he certainly is.
