Patrick Wolf

He may play the harp, harpsichord, organ, theremin, ukulele, viola and violin but if he hadn't become a musician Patrick Wolf could have been employed as a safety inspector. Surely few other pop stars could sniff out dangerous situations as readily as this pink-haired polymath. He claims to have cracked his head open three times before the age of ten and been burgled three times in the past 12 months. As for inspiration for his new single - Accident and Emergency - he found it in the time he fell out of a speeding coach.

Review: Patrick Wolf

9.5 out of 10: Leeds, 9.05pm. A ridiculously enjoyable set suggests that 2008 may be the year of the Wolf.
