Shockwaves NME Awards Show: We Are Scientists, London Astoria; Tue Feb 27

Is this scene dead?

We Are Scientists Shockwaves NME Awards Show 2007
We Are Scientists are famous for their goofy energy and charisma, so it’s a shame that tonight the boys were strangely subdued. ‘Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt’ was too reticent to rock and the onstage japery was kept to a minimum. They finally pulled it out of the bag by the time ‘This Scene Is Dead’ roared through the building, but it was too little too late.
