The Pineapple Thief at ULU, London - live review
Venue: ULU, London
The Pineapple Thief team up with Gavin Harrison, with support from Godsticks
“We’re going to play quite a few songs from an album that’s not out yet, so you can’t sing along even if you want to,” announces Godsticks frontman Darran Charles.
In fact, the Welsh band are brave enough to pretty much base tonight’s set upon their forthcoming fourth record, Faced With Rage, spitting out three newies in a row. Based on churning metal riffs, the music is perhaps a little heavier than genre purists might prefer from a support act. Songs such as Revere, Guilt and Lack Of Scrutiny are somewhat bare in the hooks department, but their Frippian solos elevate them from a status that could otherwise be considered mediocre.
