Mew Live In London
Venue: Camden Roundhouse, London
Danish alt-proggers dazzle Camden.
Mew’s UK album chart positions – No.59 for their sixth and latest, +-, is their highest to date – don’t quite do justice to their fanbase: it’s like seeing a secret sect filing reverentially into the mighty, coliseum-like Roundhouse tonight. They have come in their legions to witness the return, after six years, of the Danish band categorised variously as ‘indie stadium’, a poppier Muse, the Danish Radiohead, A-ha gone prog metal, and My Bloody Valentine savaging the songbook of Prefab Sprout.
