Venue: Islington O2 Academy, London
Support: Spit Like This / Obscure Pleasures / Fearless Vampire Killers
As people start to fill into the O2 Academy in Islington, Spit Like This (**) start only a few minutes after doors open. Musically, the band are solid with good melodies, fast riffs and energy but they had too much chat (and not the good type); the lead singer’s jokes go down in the venue like lead balloons. The vocalist looks like a younger Ville Valo, minus as much heavy smoking, and the bassist is a girl (shocker). But, what really is a highlight of this band is the guitarist, who holding the fort of people surges out beat after beat, and riff after riff keeping the entertainment value.
