The Spinto Band play new songs at London gig
The Spinto Band premiered four new songs at their Shockwaves NME Awards Show in London tonight (February 15).

And the US band also played two classic covers at the KOKO gig - the band's regular set closer 'I Think We're Alone Now', first made famous by Tommy James And The Shondells, and Frankie Valli's easy listening classic 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You'.

The Delaware six-piece went through the whole of their 2006 debut LP 'Nice And Nicely Done', with rapturous receptions for the singles 'Brown Boxes', 'Oh Mandy', 'Direct To Helmet' and 'Did I Tell You'.

The new songs were called 'Capo', 'Policy' 'Ain't This The Truth' and the delirously poppy 'The Cat's Pyjamas', which sounded like a surefire future single.

The set was:

'Crack The Whip'
'Did I Tell You'
'Trust vs Mistrust'
'Brown Boxes'
'The Cat's Pyjamas'
'Japan Is An Island/Atari'
'Can't Take My Eyes Off You'
'Oh Mandy'
'Ain't This The Truth'
'Direct To Helmet'
'Spy vs Spy'
'So Kind, Stacy'
'I Think We're Alone Now'

Proceedings tonight kicked off with an utterly charming performance from Kate Nash, while Liverpool five-piece Alterkicks and new EMI signings Air Traffic also played warmly received sets.
