Banana Gigs...

Mr. Hudson, my new favourite band du jour...Saw an amazing gig the other night at the ICA having previously seen them at Camden's Proud Galleries. They blew me away the last time but this time around it was even more special. What an electric atmosphere and given that London was pretty hectic due to the tube strike, this gig just took the edge off things. With the focus mostly on the new album due out in August the band didn't dissapoint by playing classics from their first album Tale of Two Cities. Too Late Too Late always goes down so well with crowd and gets everyone dancing, while Cover Girl and Ask the DJ brought a lovely end to a night which frankly could've kept on going and going...My favourite tracks from the new album were the opener - I don't know the name of the track - , Stiff Upper Lip and the majestic Supernova. I can't wait to see these guys again, it's always such an uplifting and fun experience. What music should be all about...
