Young Knives ‘dedicate’ tiny gig to Tony Blair

Band also say they want to 'urinate' on their fans at intimate show

Young Knives played a tiny gig last night (June 11) at The Star Of Bethnal Green venue in east London to around 150 fans.

During the set the band mock-dedicated a song to former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and bassist The House Of Lords joked that he wanted to pass water on his fans.

Kicking off the 12-song set with ‘Fit For You’, the Oxford-based band played a high-octane set which saw singer/guitarist Henry Dartnall bursting into the crowd and ending up on his back.

“How nice to be crammed into a tiny room, sweating with The House Of Lords quipped the frontman before playing ‘Terra Firma’. Before playing ‘Lightswitch’ he said, “This song is for people who you think are going to be the big man, but they don’t [end up being that]. Like Tony Blair.”

Later in the set The House Of Lords joked, “I love you, audience. I want to get you all in a bath and urinate on you.”

Then, during the following ‘Turn Tail’, Henry Dartnall leaped into the crowd and fell down, playing guitar manically while flailing on his back on the venue floor, much to the crowd’s delight.
