Editors, Maccabees kick off Mencap Little Noise gigs in London

Union Chapel hosts bands plus Bombay Bicycle Club

Editors, The Maccabees, Bombay Bicycle Club and Everything Everything kicked off the 2010 Mencap Little Noise Sessions gigs at the Union Chapel in London last night (November 16).

Tom Smith and co were introduced by former Shockwaves NME Awards host Mat Horne before they played an hour-long set including ‘Munich’, ‘Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors’ and set-closer ‘Fingers In The Factories’.

They also played ‘No Sound But The Wind’, which features on the soundtrack to new film ‘Twilight: New Moon’.

Previously, performing after openers Everything Everything and Bombay Bicycle Club, The Maccabees battled sound problems at the start of their set to play seven songs.

They opened with ‘Can You Give It’, playing a stripped-down set, closing later on with crowd favourite ‘Love You Better’.

‘In This Light And On This Evening’
‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool’
‘You Don’t Know Love’
‘An End Has A Start’
‘You Are Fading’
‘Walk The Fleet Road’
