Anyone going ? Tickets just went on sale. Got mine for London
roundhouse though, bit big
Saw them at The Electric Ballroom last year and it was perfect.
They're only going to get bigger though, so catch them while you can
The first 2 albums were only available in the UK upon the release of their third "Boys and Girls in America". So a whole bunch of people were confronted by these 3 brilliant albums in one year.
Then add a superb fourth album and there you go.
Are they on the radio or summit?
plus, they're a band who appeal to 40-somethings as much as 20-somethings.
5 out 5 albums in most mags. Posters all over the shop.
They're a throwback but they're modern too
shall be getting tickets for this. Saw them at Borderline and Oxford Zodiac at the start of last year which were two of the best gigs I've seen in my life. Then they played Shepherd's Bush Empire which was pretty bad - the band were good but the crowd were 90% chatting bastards. Electric Ballroom was alright but KOKO was incredible. The whole venue bouncing up and down to Yr Little Hoodrat Friend was a very special moment.
Sorry, but I don't.
And yes, I have seen them live.
