It’s been over 10 years in the making but the original line up who blessed us with ‘Tell All Your Friends’ graced the London stage at The Roundhouse in Camden. The equilibrium of the band had been restored with Adam Lazzara and John Nolan reunited and supported by the ever present Eddie Reyes and Mark O’Connell with Shaun Cooper on bass.
The new album is out at the end of June and we got to hear a few tracks tonight, notably, ‘Faith’, ‘El Paso’ and ‘Best Place To Be A Mom’ but it was the original songs that grabbed the headlines. ‘Cute Without The E’ and ‘So Last Summer’ seemed as fresh today as they have ever been and won the crowd over with ease.
Unfortunately, my avid visits to the cinema have been cut short of late. In Ipswich, the local cinema has an unlimited membership for little over £10 a month, which is a steal considering a single visit is £7.50. Needless to say, with an imminent relocation to the Big Smoke hanging in the balance, I’m not in the circumstance of watching every film that comes out. It makes the decision of what to see far more testing and as I gaze at the schedule on the tv screens above the ticket desk, the student chewing gum behind the counter becomes increasingly impatient. It was either to be ‘Funny People’, ‘Inglourious Basterds’ or ‘500 Days of Summer’.
