was a bit crap.
Pipettes- good, but the songs last for about 2 seconds and the audience was almost entirely made up of creepy men ogling.
New Rhodes- OK.
Battle- Bloc Party crossed with the Lightning Seeds. Frontman looked as though someone had put angry bees down his t-shirt. This not being the case, he was simply being a bit affectedly Ian Curtis.
Good Shoes- Pretty good, although slightly marred by rubbish crash barriers and security. Boooo.
Mando Diao- the funniest band I've ever seen. They could make more money as a tribute band, and perhaps they should. If only they'd played You Can't Steal My Love...
British Sea Power- poor sound, slightly will-this-do performance. I left halfway through though, so maybe they were just waiting for me to leave.
Art Brut- Great as always, despite broken guitars and stuff. Only good band of the night, despite people at the front keen on Rocking Out (trans. knocking over innocent bystanders like eejits).
Then we all went home.
By the way, isn't it illegal to refuse to serve tap water and charge Â£4 for a bottle? If someone had died they would have been screwed. Ah well.
Rant over- anyone see any decent bands that night?
