Kingston The Peel (K Fest 3, Day 2)
May 15th 2010
The Portsmouth trio returned to Kingston armed with some new songs and Tim's sharp new hairdo, not to mention an artificial sun shining down on them it seems (watch the video). They were definitely the best I've seen them in a while and reminding me why they were so much fun in the first place. Their MySpace says they're "currently knuckling down to finish our album". About bloody time too! Really looking forward to hear the new record and you should be too!
This is obviously quite a personal song for frontman Tim as, as he explains before they play it, it's about his friend Spencer who's in the Afghanistan and who he obviously wants to get home safe. I think this song is going to be on their long-awaited second album, the follow-up to 2006's 'Shake Up' (out now on Household Name).
