Band kick off Shockwave NME Awards Shows 2007 in style
Larrikin Love kicked off the first Shockwaves NME Awards Shows 2007 in London tonight (February 12) with a fiddle stomping opening gig.
The Thamesbeat outfit performed a bouncing hour set for their sold out show at KOKO which culminated in the band donning silver outfits and joining forces with support act Tiny Dancers for knee-raising closer ‘Silver’.
But for a huge great white shark bursting out of the front of the stage, their set resembled a farm scene as the band found themselves surrounded by plastic goats and birds.
Arriving onstage dressed in a top hat and tail, singer Edward Larrikin led his band through hit singles ‘Six Queens’, ‘Well Love Does Furnish A Life’ and a beer frenzied rendition of fan favourite ‘Happy As Annie’.
During the encore the band were stripped down to a three-piece with Ed taking up the ukulele for an acoustic rendition of album track ‘At The Feet Of Re’.
Earlier Sheffield newcomers Tiny Dancers played a short set which opened with singer David Kay showering the crowd with balloons. Further support came from Jakobinarina and To My Boy.
Larrikin Love played:
‘Paul My Dear’
‘Happy As Annie’
‘On Sussex Downs’
‘Ribbon Dance Mews’
‘Well Love Does Furnish A Life’
‘Peace In My Heart’
‘A Burning Coast’
‘At The Feet Of Re’
‘Downing Street Kindling’
The Shockwaves NME Awards Shows 2007 continue with Kasabian at the soon to be demolished Hammersmith Palais tomorrow night (February 13).
