For me, the two musical highlights of the day, and indeed the weekend, was the Top Nice tent and Lekiddo - Lord of the Lobsters. I am trying not to be biased, because I know and like the guys that organise Top Nice, but their little gazebo at the back of the arena next to the toilets was probably where I had the most fun. They played great music and whoever wasn’t DJing would be frantically dancing around enjoying the music. I could tell it wasn’t just my personal attachment to them because random people would approach the decks to compliment the music and to thank them. So, nice one Top Nice. And as for Lekiddo… This can definitely not be labeled biased, as I had never seen the man before in my life. When I did see him, however, I knew I was onto a good thing. There he was, alone on the stage, clad in a gold cape and his chest branded with a gold lobster. This tall, well-built, camp, black Lord of the Lobsters was up there sweating and beaming, but concentrating hard on his dance moves and song words. The theme of the songs seemed to be mainly disco. Unfortunately we arrived during the penultimate song. But, boy, what a finale he gave us. After teaching the audience some beautiful dance moves to use during the chorus, he launched into a song about beaches, cocktails and, of course, disco. There was something so radiant and modest about Lekiddo that made me want to get the dance just right and make him happy. As I turned round, I saw the whole tent doing the movements and gazing at him in the same way that I must have been. During the applause he looked bashful and flattered which made me like him even more. Lekiddo ­ you are something special. Pinchy Pinchy kiss kiss! Words by Evie Jeffreys, photos by Scott cullen
