Sarah Cracknell: Gorilla, Manchester
Dave Simpson, The Guardian, 21 June 2015
"YOU MAY NOTICE that I've got a bad throat," begins Sarah Cracknell, ominously. For the next couple of songs, she struggles to hit the higher notes and trades lines with a band member to save her voice. There are chuckles as she points towards her keyboard player's convincingly Cracknell-like falsetto. Eventually, the situation calls for dangerous emergency measures and she produces a bottle of bourbon.
