"Skyscraper" Stan Woodhouse lopes around the stage, 6’6” and stick thin, delivering characters and narratives in a powerful baritone flanked by his long time band.
A favourite of Stan's on the album and to perform live, he enjoys the drive, the aggression and the syncopation of the backing vocals - and it all came out sounding better anticipated. It's a very straight song - there are no bridges and there's barely a chorus but it holds together and gets a crowd going like nothing else!
