A great live album that has the attitude of LC! that we've all come to love and appreciate, with good humour and even better songs. A good send off for Ellen Campesinos! while also bringing back Aleksandra Campesinos! for this farewell show!
Favorite track: My Year In Lists (Live At Islington Assembly Hall).
Always been a fan but prefer to buy CD's or vinyl. Always wanted to hear this last show with Ellen. Today, with proceeds towards ACLU, seemed like the perfect day to stray from my preferences. No Wall.
On December 15th, 2012 at Islington Assembly Hall, London, we played a 21-song set in front of a sold-out crowd of 800 people to both celebrate our time with and mourn the depar- ture of Ellen Campesinos! as a member of Los Campesinos!. It also marked the first time we were joined onstage by Aleks Campesinos! since her departure from the band, to return to her studies, 3 years ago.
This was a once in a lifetime LC! gig. One which we enjoyed playing immensely and are delighted to be able to share with you in the form of this live album. We hope that you enjoy listening to it and that if you were there on the evening it brings back floods of good memo- ries. If you weren't, I hope it hits you with pangs of jealousy, and that we will see you front and centre at a show in the not too distant future.
