Bombay Bicycle Club

Not for the first or last time this weekend, a band confused the entire audience by going straight from their soundcheck into the performance proper without so much as a word. In the case of Bombay Bicycle Club - or BBC to their friends - this enabled them to launch straight into recent album 'I Had The Blues But I Let Them Go' and probably squeeze one extra song into their allotted time - a cunning wheeze if ever there was one.

In truth, there's not a lot of light and shade in a BBC set. Each song trips along happily at its own pace, nothing much happens and yet it is all done rather inoffensively and in the best of humours. I wouldn't say I would go and see BBC again, but they were fun whilst they lasted
