"I can't hear you," says Sharleen, holding the microphone out to the crowd for them to sing bits of a song here and there. I'm no gig-guru, but I'm pretty sure I pay for my ticket so the performers sing the song for me rather than the other way around. Normally I cringe at this behaviour but by the end of the gig I am doing what I am told and singing with aplomb! Therein lies the power of Spiteri -a show-woman who has the chops to back up her cheeky stage banter with stellar vocals and an oasis of stage honesty in a desert of jaded pretence found with so many performers today. Ninety minutes of why we still love this band in the comfortable seated arrangement of the Eventim Apollo... middle-aged heaven!

Long ago they were indie mainstays, but Scottish rockers Texas have long since reinvented themselves as big-league soul-rockers. They went on hiatus in the middle of the last decade, but returned recently with a new album called 'The Conversation'. You'll hear extracts from that here alongside a raid on the band's back catalogue, since they're celebrating 25 years since their debut album 'Southside'.
