Supports- Shoot The Pretender, the next of AMFOM, the third of Deaf FM
With a dozen patrons before them, Shoot The Pretender take to the stage aiming to liven the place up. Their attempt doesn’t fare well and when vocalist Gemma announces “If God forbid you enjoyed our set…”, inviting people to look out for them in future, not one soul in the room appears interested. A Mouth Full Of Matches instantly grasp everyone's attention, front-man Tom screaming out lyrics with great enthusiasm. 'Take Me Away' proves to be the highlight of the set, but even as they wrap things up, the applause continues and it’s a job well done for them. Deaf FM are up next and with front-woman Cherry regularly and sometimes rather irritatingly, standing on top of the speakers, they're certainly hard to ignore, yet despite their efforts, they receive little or no response from the growing crowd. Even before they step on stage, FYH have a full house. As they kick off their set with fan favourite ‘Playing With Fire’, the noise level escalates and the night gets well and truly underway. With their debut album ‘If It Kills Me’ having been released last month, its' material features heavily; a surprising number of the audience already knowing the words, singing along and nodding their heads while ‘Perfect’ judging by the reaction of the crowd, appears to be the song of the moment. Launching into their final track of the night ‘Save Yourself’, guitarist Mikey and bassist Rich take to the floor - cameras flash, a few guys air guitar along; it’s a fitting end to what has been an eclectic, loud evening of entertainment, rounded off with a performance sure to be remembered for some time to come.
