It’s the return of Razorlight! Last night (June 3), the Johnny Borrell-fronted band played at London’s Electric Ballroom to mark the 10th anniversary of their debut album ‘Up All Night’.
Of course, the band’s line-up has changed dramatically since 2004. 18 year-old Brazilian João Mello is now on bass duties, replacing original member Carl Dalemo.
Johnny, though, is still there – and sporting a mightily impressive beard, too – and he led the band through a set that saw them play ‘Up All Night’ from in its entirety.
Their was room, too, for a rendition of ‘Somewhere Else’, a standalone single that was released in the period between ‘Up All Night’ and Razorlight’s self-titled 2006 follow-up.
There were also some rare B-sides from the band’s early years, including ‘Black Jeans’.
But the gig could only end with one song, couldn’t it? The 2006 Number One single ‘America’, the band’s biggest ever hit. Welcome back, Johnny – we’ll see you in 2016 for the ‘Razorlight’ 10th anniversary gig, right?
