There's a special moment for the Lowry audience in a new song from Electric: Salford Sunday. Thompson jokes that they write a special song for every town they perform in.
Electric is the result of Thompson writing for the trio he's been performing with over the past ten years - Michael Jerome on drums and Taras Prodaniuk on bass. "an inspirational way to look at writing" he says. It's not only created some great songs but makes the live experience feel like you're seeing a trio in action rather than a solo performer with a backing band.
