Consternation has recently ripped through The Johnson Partnership Solicitors Nottingham office. In March 2013 a Radio One documentary exploring the life of the Nottingham superstar singer-songwriter Jake Bugg, featured an interview in which Jake reminisced about an early concert at Nottingham’s Alley Café.
For the past fourteen years The Johnson Partnership have happily shared premises at Cannon Courtyard in Nottingham with the self-saying café.
People staying late in the office have been regularly entertained by a selection of DJs and live artists playing to a hip boho crowd.
Absolutely none of us had any idea that we had been present at one of the very first live performances given by Jake, whose first album topped the UK charts in the Autumn of 2012.
Staff can perhaps be excused for not recalling the event, bearing in mind that Jake explained to the nation that he only managed to play three songs before a guitar string broke, without him having a replacement, leaving him to fear that his career was doomed to failure rather than international stardom.
We all wish Jake well with his forthcoming world tour and applaud the Alley Café for some spectacular talent-spotting.
