Live Reviews

The light dimmed just after 8pm and the wedged Shepherds Bush Empire responded as one as the band walked onto the stage. Labelled an acoustic (first) set, the band kicked off with 'Remedy' and for the next 75 minutes stormed the Empire.

 

This first set was like some band’s entire concert and with more intensity. The band shifted between acoustic and electric as the set progressed. ‘She talks to Angels’ and ‘My Morning’ finishing the set were sublime, indeed these were so electric that I thought the band was playing straight through!

 

 A short break then it’s back plugged in and blazing, ‘Jealous Again’, ‘Oh Josephine’, ‘Hard to Handle’ (after which I had to leave for the train L ) were stunning. Yes, the band excels at the ‘jam’ moments, and there were plenty of them, but always kept tight and entertaining.
