Was where i went to see Simian Mobile Disco on February 16th. The club was Showcase, a ridiculously pretentious place with valet parking and full of boys and girls desperate to be snapped by Facehunter.
Following an amazing support set by Manchester band The Whip, I must say that SMD were very impressive live. Having heard some not so good things about their live performance, what we heard was more than adequate for our dancing needs. The sound was great and sure they just have a bunch of great songs to play around with anyway. As for the Whip, these guys are definitely worth catching live. I liked them anyway, but i appreciated them a hell of a lot more after that treat.
Both bands can be found on the Kitsune Maison compilations or on myspace, of course.
The Whip play Paris' La Maroquinerie on April 30th and Dublin's Trinity Ball on May 9th.
My apologies for the delay in posting this. I will give no excuse because i do not have one.
