Kingston The Hippodrome (New Slang club night)
May 20th 2010
The new band formed by Mark and Dave from The Steal combines that band's much-loved energy and passion with more melodic influences such as ALL and Osker. Throw in some British Basketball League love and you have a band that's a hell of a lot of fun live. Supporting Alkaline Trio (who played a horrific acoustic set) at the New Slang club night, they may still be quite new but they showed exactly why we should be excited.
This song (which vocalist Mark said was tentatively titled this and joked about how it was about French toilets, after his recent cycling trip I presume) is slightly slower than many of their songs, making it pretty damn cool. Dave's guitar lead comes out just as he's about to lay down that awesome guitar line but it's a catchy and cool song. I hope it'll be on their upcoming demo (after all, Dave does say it's the best one at the start of the video!)
