The Clean, Subliminals, T54
November 26th, 2011 at CPIT Students Association
Another stunning Flying Nun Records birthday show at the CPSA!
T54 we’re a great start to the night, showing why they’re one of Flying Nun‘s latest signings with great rollicking tunes propelled by Joe Sampson’s Flying Nun-influenced guitar riffs. Meanwhile some very unusual independent short films we’re playing behind the bands, care of Stuart Page.
The Subliminals ‘United States‘ album is one of my favorite 90’s Flying Nun Records releases, and seeing them last night bought back a flood of memories. ‘Uh Oh‘ went off like no other, what a great, driving rock song from one of the label’s most under-appreciated acts.
The Clean played an epic set of songs that stretched from the earliest EPs, through to (almost) now, with the crowd singing along to all the early stuff, and some of the later songs making for surprise highlights too. Hamish was very vocal behind the kit, expressing his disgust at the nights election results, though most of this seemed to fly right past the packed audience.
