Kids grow up fast nowadays. A few short months ago, Mumm-Ra were a small band swimming in the same pool as the Maccabees, the Dykeenies and other such tuneful but interchangeable bands. Then they released two brilliant singles, "What Would Steve Do?" and "Out Of The Question" and suddenly they find themselves standing on the main stage in Hyde Park. And they are bricking it. I have rarely seen a band look as scared as Noo, Tate & Co. Which, in turn, means that they totally blow the chance to make any impression on their biggest crowd ever. Possibly the world's first agrophobic band, they are so much better indoors. Go see them there.
