Jamiroquai: Battersea Power Station, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 16 December 1997
ON THE face of it, Jamiroquai are an unlikely group to excite the passions they do. Singer Jason "Jay" Kay is the only member familiar to the man on the Clapham omnibus, and then mainly because of his taste in boulder-sized furry hats. The rest of the group, which expands to a nine-piece for gigs, are as anonymous as their jazz-funky riffs. The music itself consists of perfectly amiable and well-executed party tunes influenced by people as diverse as Level 42, Herbie Hancock and Linx. Yet there's no sitting on the fence — you either love 'em or hate 'em.
