Philly punks Nothing are back from the brink with a new record that draws on some really, really bad times.
Crescent : Liverpool University
It's an inconclusive performance
On record, it's defiantly memorable. On stage, The Crescent have yet to invest the same power in their performances. With the exception of bassist Sean Longworth (whose swagger and presence could out-cocky even Liam Gallagher) the band are reluctant to truly shine. As a result, the craftsmanship that goes into songs like 'Something Else', 'Spinning Wheels' and 'Not Good Enough' (their finest moment) is lost.
It's an inconclusive performance and a long way from proving The Crescent to be the new Oasis, the new La's or even the new Cast. Within a few months we'll find out where The Crescent are really at - and whether it's worth sticking around for the ride.
