Live Review: The Thrills @ Scala

By on Friday, 20th July 2007 at 2:37 am

The Thrills live @ ScalaSo, last night I was lucky enough to catch The Thrills and Palladium at Scala in London. I’ve already written a quick bit on Palladium for Londonist (who gave me the free tickets), but now for The Thrills, a highlight of the month for me.

I caught The Thrills for the first time last month at the Millennium Dome, and loved their short set, and now I’ve finally got to see a full set I must say they’re a brilliant live band… full of energy, pizzaz and Conor sure knows how to work a crowd.

Working their way through all of the favourites and a lot of their new album, the guys from Ireland via America bought a tiny bit of summer to a rain swept London. Introducing new song “Restaurant” Connor jokes “This is the bit the whole band hates – I’m on rhythm guitar, holding it all together, and, well, my rhythm is non-existant”. Still, the track passes without a hitch. Undoubtedly the highlights of the evening are the ol’ classics “Big Sur”, “Santa Cruz”, “One Horse” and “Corey Haim”, however “Long Forgotten Song” definitely has the chance to join the favourites, sounding brilliant both on record and live.

After the jump find some pictures and the setlist. If anyone wants any of the pictures bigger just shout or leave a comment.

The Verve / November / Tour

By on Tuesday, 26th June 2007 at 4:57 pm

Richard Ashcroft - The VerveThe Verve have announced that they’ll be reforming for a new tour and album in November this year. The band split acromoniously in 1999 when Richard Ashcroft and Nick McCabe fell out.

If only I was in the country I’d be there. A bit gutted that I’m not, as they’ll be awesome shows (if they’re still all on talking terms by then). It’ll be interesting to see what their new album is like, and if they can come out with anything anywhere near as good as Urban Hymns. They’ll play:

Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd November – Glasgow Academy
Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th November – Blackpool Empress Ballroom
Thursday 8th, Friday 9th November – London Roundhouse

Tickets are on sale NEXT Friday, July 6th at 9am.
