Shockwaves NME Awards Indie Rock Show; London Brixton Academy, Fri Feb 23
Onstage football as Rock tour shudders to a haltMore on The Automatic
And so it came to pass: indie rock hit London. Mumm-Ra's three guitar attack earns them even more friends whilst The Horrors seem to be massacring their instruments with power drills. The View have now reached the stage where ten album tracks in a row still keep the crowd crazy, but it's The Automatic who raise the roof an extra few feet with a certain 'monster' single and some onstage football antics. Proof that you don't need to gulp glowstick juice to have the night of your life.
